We’ve been experiencing some wet weather for the second half of this week, but that cleared up on Saturday past noon-time to reveal wonderfully sunny and clear weather for the rest of the day – enough to go by for a quick visit to The Minton site for pictures again.
As in the last several visits now, there doesn’t seem to be major visible improvements to exterior works, though from the construction sounds going on still, I’m guessing interior works and touch-up are still going on. I remembered while working on the transitional montages this week that it’s been a long while since I’ve done stitched panoramas, so went about composing a couple. These really do show how large the project is – all 1,145 units and its supporting facilities and landscaping.
Workers at Tranquil World’s lily pond picking up debris and dead leaves.
Tried a different perspective of the Fun World wallpaper pictures. This was taken by sticking out my hand out of a window ledge and guessing for the right picture angle! Had to ensure that the E-M5′s leather strap was secure around my wrist for this.
Workers scrubbing the tiles at Fun World.
Wide-angle view of the front facade and main guardpost.
Lots of FB neighbors especially liked this picture. I was just casually taking the shot though without intending it to be this iconic!
The Retail Block from eye level.
Casual banter with the construction workers and a FB neighbor revealed that one of the pools had been problematic and potentially caused complications in the recent TOP. Not sure if that was indeed the cause of the delayed TOP, but the heated pool had been completely drained this afternoon.
Panoramic stitch comprising 9 images of Fun World and Blocks 8, 6, and 2.
Another panoramic view of the same but composed from level 5 of the opposing apartment block.
Panoramic stitch comprising 6 images of Tranquil World and Blocks 14 and 12.
Panoramic stitch of 6 images with Block 2 as subject. This picture is a nice transitional contrast from the first picture in the earlier montage how far the development has come along. Just 3 years ago, this view showed an empty plot of land.
Panoramic stitch of 6 images of the front.
These panorama pictures, alongside others for this afternoon’s visit are available here. And lastly, a third transition montage I did yesterday – and this time of Tranquil World.
Mega-sized version here too.
