🇮🇹 i had ridiculously high expectations in venice since reading the thief lord and dark reflections at the tender age of 12 and am now very pleased to confirm they were fully met (minus the living winged lions, which is a shame). 🧚♀️
before the circuit breaker took effect there were quite a number of repainting projects of public housing going on, and the flats in bedok are no exemption. every seven years, our public houses get repainted, and depending on the choice of the residents within a certain area, the colours can be quite refreshing or hideous.
while i have made photographs of public flats before and after a repaint, i have not actually made one midway through a repaint, so i was quite excited to make this photograph of blocks 505 and 506 bedok north road midway through a repaint with block 505 (further back) still in its original colour scheme.
these image is part of a project of mine on documenting bedok, an area i have lived in since 1993. you can see more of this ongoing project as well as other architecture and cityscape photography work on my fb page, https://fb.com/bygarethphua
