is a place where you can share photographs taken by you from your part of the world


We have a new word prompt every Sunday

This week is

Ethereal 

by Bonita


This photo was taken in Singapore, March 2013 where we go round the world, edited with Picmonkey. The lily pond with thousands of water lilies is in front of the Marina Sands Resorts


and this is the Singapore Flyers, a giant ferris wheels, if you do not know how huge is that, it is bigger than the London Eye, standing 541 foot, currently the world's largest ferris wheels, but can't hold it too long now, Las Vegas is building one that will be 550 ft , expected to complete in late 2013.


This structure is the Esplanade concert hall by the Singapore River, Clare performed at this 3000 seated concert hall in 2005, when she was only 13.


The half lion half fish statue is the Merlion, and icon of Singapore, just like the statue of liberty is to New York City.
Singapore was founded by a prince when he was hunting for Lion on this tiny island, therefore, he named the island Lion City, and the fish part is because many many years ago, Singapore was a little fishing village.


The Rain Oculus in front of the Sands Resort is another amazing structure, see that guy in green shirt, that's my husband


when he bend down and whisper, I can hear him from the opposite side of the oculus, isn't that amazing?


Hop over to

Wonderful to take this tour around Singapore City again, Kirsty. Amazing architecture, yeah I remember the durian-looking theater, gorgeous!. WOW, Clare is such a talent :). I remembered the story about a prince, Parameswara who found & named Singapore (then, Temasik) when out hunting and then sailed up to Malaya and founded Malacca in 1411!. Beautiful city, Kirsty!. HUGS.

Good thing your hubby had on a bright colour, you would never find him other wise:o), and isn't it marvellous how the sound travels and you can hear his whisper. Fantastic photos too!
