lantern street lamp post

Club Street

Last year I had been spending most of my Saturday mornings sketching at Club Street. This idiosyncratic shophouse building is at the corner of Club Street and Gemmill Lane. The advertising or design firm was above the comtemporary furniture shop. I like the 'stop' sign on the 'lantern' street lamp post which is a rare and interesting sight in this area due to the narrow road and very tight pavement. The street lightings and public signages are in oriental theme because Club Street is a stone away from Chinatown.

Once again, I had to work fast to make the shadow part of the composition.
