Saw this on Pentax Forum,

Any chance we can make an outing during this period? Let's start brain storming of what to do first. We could have our outing on other weekends also. It's always Pentax Day for our outing.. :)

Some suggestions:
1. Macro..
2. Model photography (may not be free as it need be organised.)
3. Street Shooting at Orchard.

Fuyoooo! Fasting month @ Geylang?

1) AWESOME food!
2) Sh*t load of people!

Both these factors will add up to be an awesome experience I believe...

I give some suggestions, but I might not be able to make it.

1. Streets (Jln Basar area -which we never done before); Can also cover Haji lane and end at Jln Sultan area for Ramadan food stall food.
2. Model shoot. - try a new genre which most Pentax folks don't do. Hopefully attract fresh young 'eager' ppl too.n :D
3. Night macro - I should be able to join this one.

Thanks Ranchy for the headsup. I think #4 will be the best to show off our local Pentax/Ricoh user groups and our SG local stuff for the World Pentax Day.

Another vote for 13th. I'm flexible but prefer Sunday. Saturday may have something else.

If we all go there, might end up everyone has the same photos :D

I still think some street photos would be the best to show off our country and people on the World Pentax Day.

Seem like 13 July will be a better date since most prefer that day..
Street Shooting at Geylang Serai Bazaar will be our outing place..

What time will be better 1230pm onwards? Yamakasi, any comments? would all those stores be opened?

Was just there on Sat with the family at around 2pm. Some of the shops were just starting to set up. So it should be fully up by 13th Jul. But the weather and heat was very draining. Doyle will enjoy as there is lots of food for purchase.
