Colors of Singapore

I had the good fortune to visit Singapore last week. On my first trip to Asia (Tokyo) some years ago, I learned that Eastern color sensibilities are different from those we have in the West.  You’ll see buses painted in lime green, bubblegum pink, lemon yellow and blue, brightly colored doorways, and construction equipment in shades of orange, red, green and other colors that look out of place to Western eyes. Asian color schemes make even mundane items like packaged food look exotic.

I had time to explore Singapore on foot and took these pictures at the Harbor, in the business district, in Chinatown and in the Kampong Glam neighborhood.
