As with the photograph in the previous post, these three images highlight the greenery of Singapore, even in busy commercial and residential areas. In each of these three photographs, there is a residential or commercial space to the left, and greenery in the form of trees or plants to the right.

The Cellular Jail in Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India, has a long and eventful past. Several Indian freedom fighters were imprisoned here by the British, and the harsh conditions faced by inmates here earned the prison notoriety and the name Kala Pani (literally ‘Death Water’). Inmates here were housed in small individual cells (hence the name Cellular Jail), that were lined along corridors such as the one pictured. In the photograph, the cells are to the left, while the right is open.

Photograph of Landscape in Halstatt, Austria

Driving between Vienna and Salzburg, one gets to observe a change in the Austrian landscape from open, relatively flat plains to the rolling hills of the Austrian Alps. One of the most popular stopping-points along this route is the picturesque village of Hallstatt, somewhere around which this photograph was taken. And with landscapes like this one surrounding the village, it’s not difficult to see why it is such a popular tourist destination!
