Today is 9th August 2023, it’s Singapore’s National Day, our 58th birthday! Wishing a Happy SG58 Birthday to Singapore! There are quite a bit of personal thoughts and feelings as we are celebrating Singapore’s 58th birthday, you can read my article, “Happy 58th Birthday Singapore!” on my other website TGH Technology and Business portal/blog.
Leading up to 9th August 2023, Singapore had been preparing for National Day Parade (NDP) 2023 with many rehearsals building up for this very important NDP 2023 event. I started photographing the NDP 2023 rehearsals, starting from combined rehearsal (CR) 1 in June 2023 to National Education (NE) shows and NDP 2023 Preview 1 and 2, with my Canon EOS R6 Mark II camera that entered into my setup in May 2023.
The series of NDP 2023 photographs below were taken over from NDP CR1 to Preview 2, taken across various locations around Marina Bay, while the RSAF55 Island Fly Past was shot in the Singapore heartlands.
Starting with a crowd favourite, the Red Lions parachuting from above the Marina Bay skyline and landing at the Padang. The traditional Singapore State Flag Flypast, RSAF Enhanced “Salute-To-The-Nation”, the traditional 21 gun salute, followed by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) 55th anniversary amazing enhanced Aerial Display, and not to forget the crowd favourite fireworks at Marina Bay!
