    Well, yes I am serious. I want to get a shot of this once in a lifetime event. I'm not doing it to circumvent security or anything like that. I'll be very open and honest about my intentions and if I'm asked to delete the photos I will.

    I would just love to get a shot of the security -- mainly the armed ghurkas. I reckon it would be such a great photo and I know not many people are going to head down and do it.

    Wish me luck. Full report to come.

    How about asking Charby to organise a Bikini photo shoot by the Barb wire fences. That'll be a nice contrast eh ?

    It all boil down on luck If they are in a good mood and you are not too much a thorn in their flesh. You might get away with it. Oh close up is not a good idea Love to see your photos of this adventure.

    armed ghurkas? see if you can spot/locate the forward base/s for our star teams. my guess is one of it may be at the former beach road police station. or even within suntec itself. have fun. at the aerospace exh at changi shortly after 9/11, their assault vehicles were spotted directly opposite the exhibition site. have fun!

    arm yourself with a 1.4 and 2x extender and wear bulletproof vest.

    was thinking it would be nice to do a night scenery shoot there... no cars and all..

    i jus don't think those security guys are that open to this idea, though.

    no cars... wow...

    I'm back, and I have a terrible tale to tell of...

    POLICE BRUTALITY!

    First, I thought it would be wise to have the camera out, instead of rooting though a bag at a sentry point. So I've got my dSLR in hand, and very obviously so. I'm 6'2", hard to miss. So I very obviously make my way to a sentry point with three heavily armed men and ask if I can take a photo.

    You could see the hunger in their eyes. They had all that weaponry -- the guns, the sprays, the tasers, the truncheons and you could tell they wanted to use them. And along I come, into their trap. What happened then was unforgettable.

    "I'm sorry, Sir, but all photography is forbidden here."
    "Are you sure?"
    "Yes, Sir. I am afraid that those are the rules.
    - pause -
    "Oh."
    - pause -
    "Have a great day, Sir."

    It was horrible this awful brutatlity, but I am made of hard stuff so I asked at a few more posts. Each time the retribution was swift and terrible. "I am sorry, Sir. No photos."

    This happened as I made my way about Suntec...until the last post. What happened next will always chill my blood!

    Because I was disoriented from circumnavigating Suntec, this uniformed barbarian, he...he...he politely gave me very helpful and succinct directions to the MRT. It was horrible! The brute!

    Right now you may be saying to yourself, I told you so!, but you'd be wrong, dead wrong.

    Did I get my photo? You bet your sweet ass I did! It's not the shot I wanted, but I think as a reward for walking up to so many heavily armed men it's good.

    I'll pop it up once it's edited.

    Haha, the brutality is just horrible, I feel so bad for you!

    MAY THIS BE A WARNING TO ALL BUDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO AIM TO CAPTURE THE SECURITY FORCE AT THEIR MOST LETHAL!

    Real Smooth man, glad you got your shot!
