Katong bungalow in B&W

View Large On Black


The Peranakan bungalows built by the sea at Katong in Singapore in the 1920-30s were huge and not so much pastel coloured as more colonial style in white with 'wedding cake icing' ornaments. I thought this one against that sky looked kind of mysterious and maybe even eerie in B&W

For some reason (associations with B&W, sky and sea? ) it made me think of Chris Isaak's Wicked Game's video & song , though I don't think nyonyas would have been running around dressed like that , lol


Turned B&W and uploaded for the B&W Contest in The Challenge Club
