Marina Bay Lights || Blame The Monkey 2.0


A big thanks to everyone who has supported me over the last year and half. From to Flickr, I’ve really felt the love from everyone and things have been growing rapidly. Thank you so much -- I sincerely appreciate it.


We don’t have a team of people working at It’s just myself and my wife +Naomi Locardi . Everything you see is the result of a true love for photography and a passion to freely give away knowledge, experience, and information. I do this purely because I love it and she helps me purely because I’ve cleverly tricked her into loving me. (I find that subliminal messages work the best).


Over the next week, significant updates will be coming to, starting with the re-design followed by new content and tutorials. -- (Not to worry, all the before and afters will stay in place). -- Hopefully we can prevent taking the site down in the process but if things start acting funny, you’ll know the reason. So, please bear with me over the next week as I enter my sleepless, caffeine driven - obsessive - get things freaking done mode. : Hopefully we’ll come out with something wonderful when it’s all said and done.


This is all in preparation for a huge life change in March. In 2011, with a comical blend of insomnia and jet lag, I flew 220,000 miles to feed my passion for Travel and Destination Photography, almost always with a return ticket. But as of March, after we finish relinquishing all of our personal possessions, there will be no more round trips, no more going home, and no more looking back. The world will become our new home with 22 countries planned for this year alone.


I openly invite you to come share the world with us and learn how to create beautiful photography in the process.



About this photo



Marina Bay Sands and The Helix Bridge


With only 2 days to explore Singapore last week, I hit the big areas first - and they don’t get much bigger than Marina Bay. And what could possibly make one of the most opulent places in the world more attractive? How about a laser light show? Now that’s cool!


Trust me - having only a few days in this amazing city was a complete tease but thankfully, I’ll be back there very soon. :)


From Wikipedia:


Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at $8 billion, including cost of the prime land. With the casino complete, the resort features a 2,561-room hotel, a 1,300,000-square-foot (120,000 m2) convention-exhibition centre, the 800,000-square-foot (74,000 m2) The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, an iconic ArtScience museum, two large theatres, seven "celebrity chef" restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world's largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines. The complex is topped by a 340m-long SkyPark with a capacity of 3,900 people and a 150m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world's largest public cantilevered platform, which overhangs the north tower by 67m.


The Helix Bridge , previously known as the Double Helix Bridge , is a pedestrian bridge linking Marina Centre with Marina South in the Marina Bay area in Singapore. It was officially opened on 24 April 2010 at 9 pm, however only half was opened due to ongoing construction at the Marina Bay Sands.
