Location: Queenstown, Singapore.

I've been in this country for five years, and I pass by this building everyday when i take the train to go to work. It had been this way long before I got here. They say it once was among the most popular bowling centers in the country back then. It used to have a KTV lounge, a KFC, a photo studio, and a few more establishments that are now just memories to the people who have lived here longer than I have.

I took this shot on an early morning, but the warm post-sunrise colors somewhat gave this old place quite a vibrant rendering. I tried to desat a bit and i liked it, but then i decided to drag the slider all the way to monochrome, which seemed a nice photo for an old structure. I added a mild sephia for some rusty looks. The vignette and white border seem fit for an old photo look.
