    I think the usual streets that we frequently shoots tends to get boring and flavourless after a while... Maybe streets of JB might have more nostagic feeling since there are a lot of older buildings there?

    for the illegal pimps and whorehouses... better not to shoot if you want to get beaten up...

    and for info too... the more people that go... the more trouble you can get into... you will never outnumber the people there...

    Serious ah? You chat with them? And ... you trust their version of singapore law?

    As far as I know there is no such thing as legal prostitution here.

    What I know is that it is not illegal, but it is also not legal, and thus it falls into gray area. While government never set a zone, police has step up effort to contain the activity to only some area so not to upset the general population.

    Also please note that promoting sexual services (some call that pimping) is illegal in Singapore.
    So ... a bit ermmm .. puzzled that you mention "legal pimps". Under which law? Local Geylang Law?

    try walking with a big camera around the shoulders everytime and get questioned by them...
    well.. imho... i just don't want to get into trouble... "legal" means those authorised to set up business(have numbers on their doors) with their "girls" going for regular health screening... "illegal" means back alleys and on the streets...

    ok... enough of talking about geylang for me... i'm out of this thread....
    imho... little india is a great place to take pictures... it still have some charm left in it...

    actually it all depends on what u wan to capture... if u wanna capture human emotions, then any streets is the same...

    but if the streets themselves does matter, then one must explore diff streets... even geylanfg is not enough... must go m'sia , batam, thailand, hk....

    haha...

    sg streets are too ordered, too clean, too predictable compared to others... all hdb are similar, most streets are similar... most shopping mall are simlar... food courts.. car park... i think our govt like things to be the same...

    imagine if the old chinatown still exists... imagine those old hawkers still exists... the original laupasat still exists.. wow...

    That's why I suggest JB - where most of the streets remain the same for the last 20 probably 30 years or more! Old kopitiams, remain the same rustic old kopitiams... Things doesn't change so often there... Why JB? it's only a stone's throw away from woodlands... Take bus 174 and passport - *zap* there already! Super clean streets like Sg - wait long long! Stroll along the coastway you'll probably see a lot of streets you don't often see in Sg, old car workshops, convenient stores, etc, etc... Tuck in every corner you'll have a photo opportunity... An un-adulterated version of Singapore streets back in the 70-80s...

    Look around our region... please tell me which region is safer than or equal to the safety in Singapore?? If you want to feel safe, partner another photographer who have big biceps *cough*...like leong23 or numnumball or sion (who yields the ultimate crime-fighting sword) *cough, cough*

    Faint.....i so small size only.....

    Btw, i do shoot in Geylang in the daytime, but avoid those whorehouse.

    Haven't do shooting in JB, all my Malaysian friends also advice me not to, but i feel very safe to shoot in Bangkok even at night.

    Street photography can be shot anywhere, because it is to capture and record life.

    Singapore is changing so fast, so basically everything is worth recording.

    Example, we used to have chicken that is slaughter in the neighbourhood wet market.....but now is history, all the new HDB flat no longer see those clothes hanging out of the kitchen with multi-colours of bamboo poles.

    You can still see ppls making their own dry salted meat in Geylang.



    Common thing now is history in the future.....do go record our present life to show it to our grandchildren.
