Yawning Bread Photo Essay - June 2006

Signs of Singapore





All sorts of signs make up the background to life in Singapore, as anywhere else, though we seldom take notice of them.

Most of them are replicated in other cities. "Adidas", "Sale", "One-way street" or "New Zealand holidays" can be found almost anywhere, but there are some that are quite unique to Singapore (and maybe one or two other cities) and this photo essay seeks to capture them.

They tell us something about Singapore and Singaporeans, not always flattering. But they are also the things that you'll instantly recognise if you've lived some years in Singapore, and that will connect you back to this particular place.
