It Dazzles The Windbor @ Marina Bay Sands

The Winbor at Marina Bay Sands
See it dazzles..

'The Wind Arbor is the largest and most visible piece of Marina Bay Sands’ Art Path.
It covers 6,800 square meters,
equivalent to the surface area of 5 and a 1/2 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The sculpture consists of 260,000 aluminum metal “flappers”
covering the entire western fa├žade of the
Hotel Atrium facing the Central Business District
and encircling the air-conditioning towers
at the north end of the resort.
When the flappers move, they reflect light creating a shimmering piece of art.
It is 15 meters tall at the north end and rises to 55 meters at the southern entry.
The flappers are mounted on hinges and hung from steel cable
so they are free to move independently in reaction to wind movements.'

So when you are in the vicinity, do STOP! to watch and admire the art.

Rain Oculus @ Marina Bay Sands See the GUSH!


Rain Oculus
See and hear the strong gush of water.
Observe the whirlpool motion.
 The water falling from 2 storeys high creating a strong impact.
The Oculus water flow is a 15 minute display.


'The Rain Oculus is a large acrylic and stainless steel structure located at the intersection
of the retail mall with the waterfront promenade.
It creates a whirlpool motion above the promenade level
with the water falling 2 storeys through a hole at the center of the Oculus,
creating a dynamic water skylight feature at the heart of the retail mall.
It consists of a 22 meter diameter acrylic bowl
mounted on top of a tubular stainless steel superstructure
which forms a "basket" to support the acrylic panels.
The combined weight of the acrylic Oculus and steel superstructure is 90 tons.
Water flows at 6,000 gallons per minute through the Oculus
and the maximum weight of water it can hold is 200 tons.'

Fireworks @ the Benjamin Sheares Bridge


I was fortunate to have captured this scene when coincidentally the
outburst of these fireworks appeared in front of me on the highway.
The spectacular explosion got me (and my camera) literally shook up as we got closer.
We were lucky to have experience this twice on 2 consecutive days.
But unfortunately my camera ran out of battery on the first day.
Nonetheless, I managed to get these shots on the second day.
