This gallery is not about shopping, slick hotels or elevated swimming pools, but rather a selection of the scenes and characters who still sometimes lend Singapore a somewhat quirky character. Much of the original Chinatown has disappeared over the last two decades, although Little India and Arab Street seem to have fared better, as does Geylang. Read more on my blog.

Most of these images have been scanned from the original 35mm Ektachrome or Fujichrome transparencies, with a few later digital images captured with Nikon D200 using RAW format. All are available for licensing. Please visit
