Photo Friday: Chinatown (Singapore)

Asia, International Travel, Photography

I’ve been trying recently to include more people in my photography and also to dabble in a little street photography. I decided to attempt this during a walk about Singapore’s Chinatown. The name Chinatown was used by the British while the locals went by these names: In Chinese, Singapore’s Chinatown is known as Niu che shui (“bull-cart water”) as a result of the fact that, because of its location, Chinatown’s water supply was principally transported by animal-driven carts in the 19th century. The name is also echoed in the Malay name, Kreta Ayer, with the same meaning.
