Color Carnival # 29


Colorful tiles on a wall at a park, I could even see some buttons being used too. Beautiful isn't it?

Color Carnival will be on hiatus for the whole month of December, hopefully it will be back in January with more explosion of colors from the participants of the meme. In the meantime time to stock-up on more colorful photos.

Friday My Town Shoot Out: My Town Premier Attraction

Kent of Montana has chosen My Town's Premier attraction for this weeks topic. He wanted to see what's our hometown is noted for. A picture of something when one see will immediately be recognized as from our hometown.

Singapore has always been associated with this one particular symbol, the MERLION.




The Merlion Malay: Singa-Laut; is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Its name combines "mer" meaning the sea and "lion". The fish body comes from Singapore's ancient name back when it was a fishing village —Temasek — meaning "sea town" in Javanese . The lion head represents Singapore's original name —Singapura  — meaning "lion city" or "kota singa" , symbol was designed by Mr Fraser Brunner, for the logo  of the Singapore Tourism Board  (STB) in use from 26 March 1964 to 1997. The Merlion continues to be its trademark symbol since 20 July 1966.

First built as an eight metre tall sculpture in 1972, the Merlion was located at the mouth of the Singapore River as a prominent icon to represent Singapore.
The Merlion statue measures 8.6 metres high and weighs 70 tonnes. It was built by the late Singapore craftsman, Mr Lim Nang Seng.

Anyone who's been to Singapore would not give this place a miss.



 The Merlion has become the most photographed icon.

There's another smaller Merlion just behind the big one.

EMPS # 64 - TRAINS


" EMPS #64: TRAINS
WooooWoooo! All aboard! Grab your cameras and photograph TRAINS. As always, the type of TRAIN is entirely up to you. Thomas The Tank, or an old Western Pacific railroad car, it's all good! An abandoned railway station works, as does a modern subway. Anything relating to TRAINS will do nicely.

Extra Credit: Show me a conductor or engineer along with your TRAIN photos!"

Sunflowers




Helianthus Annuus or the common Sunflower
Origin: Western United States.









I have always love the sunflowers, but it's not quiet commonly grown here in sunny Singapore, they usually dies after they show off their beautiful blooms. These were caught in the HortPark Garden recently.
