The start of a long weekend for myself. It’s semester break at work so I’d applied for Leave some months ago with the (optimistic) hope then that TOP would be about this point. There was, momentarily, some excitement yesterday evening when a resident received a note from his sales agent that TOP had been reached – but that turned out to be a false alarm. A quick check on the BCA web site yielded no new updates on TOP status.
The visit this mid-afternoon turned out to be quite a bit of a disappointment, imagery wise. The sun was for the most part hiding beneath thick cloud layers, only popping out for brief moments (you can see them in a couple of pictures below) – which made for pictures that were, frankly, dull in comparison to the last visit where there were gloriously blue skies. Not much visible development again, so I continued with panoramic compositions again for a couple of spots that I didn’t cover in the last visit.
This was the E-PL6′s first visit to The Minton too, and acquitted itself admirably. And yep, as far as I could tell, no perceptible difference in images compared to the E-M5.
Closer look at the Lily pond.
The circular BBQ island has been installed with roofing, similar to the croquet lawn observation post.
The heated pool has been refilled, and still looking ever so inviting.
Looks like the pools are taking turns to get drained; this time round it was the 50m lap pool.
Flowers blooming just in front of the Retail Block.
One resident asked where was this taken: it’s the start of the footpath at Tranquil World, and just in front of Block 14A’s ground floor units.
Block 14A; several visits to our blog are staying here!
Wellness World on the right of Block 2.
And here are the panoramic compositions:
Panoramic stitch of Blocks 10 and 14 against Tranquil World. The picture’s perspective – fisheye as it is – is actually a pretty good representation of what it looks like from the opposing HDB apartment block at level 12.
Panoramic stitch of Blocks 10. This view isn’t possible for the most part at the HDB block’s common corridors – this was composed from images taken by sticking my hand with the E-PL6 out of a small window slit!
Panoramic stitch of the front signage. If only the weather was better.
Panoramic stitch taken from the opposite side of Lorong Ah Soo. The road facing units do get a bit of tree coverage.
Panoramic stitch of Blocks 2, 6 and 8 as seen from across Lorong Ah Soo.
The larger sized and other pictures are available here at the Flickr album again.
