Colourful Asia

In March 2015, I spent about two weeks in Singapore to visit friends and while there was so much to see, I was struggling a bit with taking pictures during the first days. I just didn’t know where to start. Then my friend and I went to Malacca in Malaysia for a couple of days and when we walked along the streets of Chinatown, I finally began to see all the colours and the beautiful little details. About a week later, I found myself back in Singapore, wandering around in Little India and Kampong Glam, where this series of images was continued.
