As in the previous two posts, this is a sampling of images and text previewing my developing series in conjunction with the Raffles Bicentennial celebrations currently in progress and continuing through the end of 2019 in Singapore. Refer to the previous posts for other image overviews of this project. All photos and original texts ©Rick Burnett Baker
These four images are of benches on Coleman Street, adjacent to St. Andrews Cathedral. The text is inlayed in each bench. I've then overlaid other Singapore images onto these bench photos. I felt that the message here is what we in the US talk about and what Singapore actually does. These images would represent the last four images in an exhibit of this series.
