Went to geylang to took some pix just now, was happily snapping away till got stop by a pimp who uses his hand to cover my lens.. :angry:

Anyone has such experience there before? It's a pity not being able to take pix of those small alleys, as it's what geylang's all about.. Perhaps we should organise an outing to shoot there and since in a group, think they wont dare to do anything to us.. :bsmilie:

Maybe you rent a hotel room, and then take the 600mm f4 and snipe from above?

erm..actually its an unspoken rule to not to take pics at these places.. to the "gals", its some sort like an insult and they are likely to use violence if u dun stop.. even newspaper photograhers also hide up in vans etc. before they shoot.

my advise would be: leave that place alone...

I will totally avoid so as to protect myself, camera and reset of ppls. :embrass:

They will not touch you but can't said that for your camera.

YMMV

But think those pimps got organisation one, all the 'girls' standing by the road side belongs to different groups.

I agree. Leave the Geylang Lorongs alone. Just like you can shoot all of Orchard but not Orchard Tower. Red light districts are sensitive areas

But maybe you can ask police to accompany or protect you. See what they say. :bsmilie:

Thumbs up for your bravery ! :sweat: Even police or journalist do this in a covert manner. you are the BEST !! :bsmilie:
Count yourself lucky he didnt wack you or not camera. If he knows u not a reporter from some newspaper or mag, GG liao :confused:

Those uncles and young punks loitering around the alleys and kopitams are what they call the 13 tai bao. The shops and freelance gals around that areas pay protection money to them. Dun try that stunt again :nono:

You can try snapping pictures when the police is conducting raid. Quickly run away on ur vehicle after they finished.

I agree +1:thumbsup: .
Thats a special district for that kind of entertainment and their clients prefer secrecy.
The Police patrol the area but do not station their men there. :dunno:
Not worth the risk and danger.

Go to Pattaya or Phuket if you're so eager to shoot red light district.;p
They welcome you long long.:sweatsm:
