With the growth and expansion of social media networking such as Twitter, the interaction between people, friends and business partners took on a new playing arena, increasing networking and exchanges between them. Using Twitter, I got to know a lot more photographers, bloggers and micro-bloggers (Twitter), attended different events that brought different people from different or common interests together.
What is ShootUrTweeple ? Organised by Kevin,” … of this tweetup, photography, fun and getting to walk through places where in our daily lives we would otherwise not normally tread…” For me, I totally agree with his view and it gave everyone of us here in Singapore, locals and tourists alike, how often have we walked past or rushed past a street, road to get from Point A to B or from office to shopping or office to home ? Are we missing the little things around us that is rich in history and culture ?
We started off, meeting at Farrer Park MRT Station, meeting many new photographers, bloggers and micro-bloggers for the first time and although I didn’t manage to chat with all, hope to catch up you folks in other tweetup events ! The drizzle delayed our journey into Little India and we being photographers started to entertain and ShootUrTweeple !
The route was pretty interesting, even though I walked around Little India before, visiting one of the Hindu temple around the area for my ex-colleague’s Hindu Wedding and also my previous office being near there too, I had my walkabout experiences around in the area. Nevertheless, how often I walked slowly, enjoyed the atmosphere and culture, looked the different shophouses of different designs, colours and conditions ? They do gave us many different photography opportunities !
Walking, taking photographs, lots of fun and sharing, making new friends. Shot only with my 50mm f1.8, something that I don’t usually do ! A different challenge yet it was very fun for me and got used to it in quick time ! After walking around in different routes, our end point is Zsofi Tapas Bar at 68 Dunlop Street for beers and pizzas. A great place to rest, great ambience, delicious pizzas, friendly staff ! Nice place to chill out for all of the ShootUrTweeple people ! With beers and pizzas, chatting and relaxing !! If not for me having to rush off to the Airport picking up my parents, I would definitely be staying longer !
Do check out more photos here on Flickr ! I would also be adding more fellow ShootUrTweeple blog posts here too !
