Instagram Public Photos with #thisissingapore

Matchy matchy in pink ๐Ÿ’•
but on a more serious note... since when did people’s houses become popular destinations to visit? ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ (since ig came into existence, i guess ๐Ÿ˜…)
.
i recently read an article discussing the increasing concerns of influencers trespassing on people’s homes & private properties to get that “insta-worthy shot”, even when ‘no photography’ signs are posted.
apparently people will do full-on photo shoots on someone’s porch & even line up to get a pic in front of a pretty house.
although technically there are no laws surrounding etiquette on taking photos in residential areas, there’s still an ethical code we should all abide by.
.
some might argue that if the house is already famous on ig or made to look “instagrammable”, then the owner should expect that people will want to take photos of it. but if i was someone living in one of these houses, i’d like my privacy respected & know that i can come home to peace & quiet.
a home is often a person’s sanctuary, & at the end of the day, it’s their property; they don’t owe us anything.
.
here are some basic guidelines to follow if you still do want to get a pretty picture in front of someone’s home:
- don’t take shots on the porch or stairs of someone’s house, unless you’ve gotten permission from the owners
- don’t get in the way of any of the residents living there
- if someone tells you to leave, don’t try & sneak in another shot... respect their wishes & gtfo
- turn the shutter sound off on your camera & be as quiet as possible
- don’t bring a changing tent to switch outfits in the middle of the sidewalk...
- make your photo shoot quick so you don’t disturb others in the area
.
we took our shot here as quickly as possible & made sure to stay on the sidewalk.
.
what are your thoughts on taking photos in front of people’s houses? should there be rules or laws regulating this, & do influencers have a responsibility to abide by any guidelines?

Mica building stands out against a backdrop of old and new buildings in singapore for its almost thousands of windows painted in bright colors. but did you know this building was once used as a holding area for prisoners and some say, as torture chambers, during the japanese occupation?

singapore is one of the most visited cities in the world, and i can see why. they have everything! from skyscraping rooftop bars to humble hawker stalls, luxurious 5-star hotels to peranakan buildings. they are the 3rd world's most densely populated country but more than 50% of this tiny island-state are covered by greenery. singapore, i’ll be back! if only you are not so expensive. ๐Ÿ˜…

๐Ÿ“koon seng rd, singapore๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ

singapore is not just about skyscrapers! ๐Ÿ™ i was positively surprised by all this little country has to offer.
โœจ one of the many things i loved were these colorful heritage shophouses from the 20s-30s. most of them are very well preserved and create a great contrast with all the high rise buildings.

would you you rather live in one of this houses or in a tall skyscraper? ๐Ÿค”

Getting lost in the gardens by the bay ๐ŸŒฟ
.
located right behind the marina bay sands hotel in the heart of singapore, gardens by the bay provides a perfect outdoor setting unlike anywhere else in the world. whether you’re visiting singapore for a few days, or just have time to k**l on a long layover, this place is a must visit for all travellers!
