BHT-26May’s photography outing followed the Balestier Road Heritage Trail. Our group met at the Goh Chor Tua Pek Kong Temple as our starting destination and walked from there.

Our last stop of the day was at a Burmese Buddhist Temple. This was by far the most interesting stop of the day.

 I enjoyed this photo walk as we walked to many different and interesting places. I also got to use our new lens. My favorite pictures are from the 2nd Temple with the person playing the instrument and at the Buddhist Temple.
