On a lazy Sunday, we made our way to Sentosa, an island off the southern tip of Singapore. Sentosa is part-Disneyworld/part-Las Vegas/part-Miami Beach and a popular getaway for Singaporeans. Many come here to relax at the various resorts, spas, and golf courses that dot the island. Others spend their afternoon on beaches on land reclaimed from the sea or flirt with Lady Luck at Resorts World Sentosa. Still others wander around Universal Studios Singapore, take a ride on the Tiger Sky Tower, Singapore’s tallest observatory tower, or meet Sentosa’s most famous resident, The Merlion.
I went to Sentosa Island to try my hand at photographing the parade of vessels that line the horizon just outside one of the world’s busiest ports. I took the picture above from a jetty near Siloso Beach. Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi played in the distance. While I clicked away, a handful of Segway-riding tourists swirved and swirled in a patch of sand nearby.
