A hard picture to get!

The trouble I had, for trying to get this picture!! is unbelieveable…

Marina @ Keppel bay. Click on picture to enlarge.

This is the story. On a clear sunny Sunday… I was walking from Keppel to Vivo for grocs and lunch… and I thought why not, just make a small detour to the cable car station building at HarbourFront tower 2 and take those glass elevators up and look back over the marina.

It was about 1100hrs. Bright, clear and sunny. Excellent day for a picture. As the elevator rises (rather rapidly), the view was great and getting better and better, until it suddenly cut off when the lift enters a box at the top. Opps, couldnt snap a good one in time. So, only a view between level 3 to level 14 eh? Okay, will get a good one on the way down..

Level 15 is the station and level 16 is a spa… hmm.. check it out.. wow! too much money for a treatment… hey, there is a door to the stairway just by the elevators… I wonder if the view is great from inside the stairway… hmm.. ok a small window and static view. Not bad… snap! There u go, 1 pix. Time to get back to the elevators… ooOOPPPSs! One way door! There is no getting back the way I came from! Oh NoooOOO!!

Its 16 levels of walking down… for the exit! Damn! Legs quivering, not in mood to get back into the elevators for more pictures. Hobbled over to Vivo and back with lunch.. fell asleep right after… had to snooze 2hrs to regain some energy to load the pix.

Was it worth it? Hmm… the stair way window had that terrible blue tint! The elevator window had too much reflections! See! The lengths that I go thru to get something so simple.
