Wheelock Place I
Wheelock Place, Singapore.
Taken, February 2012.
Wheelock Place has a beautiful architectural structure with alot of glass windows and panels. It is designed by the leading Japanese architect, Kisho Kurokawa.
I typically do not include a lengthy description or sharing when I post images on my Flickr photostream. However, my experience in shooting Wheelock Place has been an interesting one that fellow photographers (especially local photographers) may be interested in or may have similar experiences to recount.
I did not realize that it was so tricky to shoot interiors (and exteriors) of certain places in Singapore such as Wheelock Place. This image (and others that I will post subsequently) was taken on my second attempt at photographing this area. The security guards there are very vigilant. As soon as I took out my tripod and got ready to set up, I was told that taking photographs of Wheelock Place was not permitted - interior and exterior shots included. I tried to reason with the guard because I was not doing anything illegal but to no avail. On my second attempt, I decided that I did not want another aborted attempt and so I scouted around Wheelock Place and decided to take shots at the back rather than in front of the building as the security wasn't as tight at the back of the buidling. Other local/Singaporean photographers may have encountered similar experiences at Wheelock or at other places. Likewise, photograhers all over the world may have encountered similar difficulties as well.
