Photos: Big Carnival @ Marina Bay

19 July 20104 Comments

The four of us went to check out the family carnival at Marina Bay last Saturday!

And, the weather happened to be rather breezy that late afternoon! How nice!

[The event was organised to celebrate the completion of the new waterfront promenade and other developments in the area!]

[Anya and the ‘finger-puppet’ craft she made at one of the booths]

The kids, btw, could enjoy all sorts of games for FREE at the 2-day carnival!

I mean, they have kiddy boat rides, finger puppet crafting and kite-making sessions, ‘bouncy castles’, etc, … all provided for free to the public!

I was pleasantly surprised, I must say!


I took some shots of the kids with the late afternoon sun behind them.

And here are the three which I personally like.


Hope you had a nice weekend!

    Hi Benny,

    Thanks for dropping by and for the compliments! 🙂

    The photos were all taken by my Canon Powershot S90 (these days I like to travel light 🙂 )

    The original photos’ colours are already nice and quite rich. But all photos on my blog go through post processing works, so that I can achieve the look and feel I wish to have. Perhaps one day I’ll manage to write a long post and share how I do the post processing … 🙂

  • Benny says:

    Hi Leonny, I always love your photo works.

    The photo result is so vivid and colorful. Would you please share how did you post process those photos?

    or you can get that result straight out of from your camera? If that’s true what camera do you for these photos?


  • Leonny says:


    Yup, FREE! 😀 Too bad we didn’t bring extra clothes for them, because they had a sand castle making pit and other activities where they could get wet 🙂

  • LJ says:

    Wow! Free for the public. The children must have had great fun! 🙂
