Every time I come to this place, it is crowded with youths, tourist, photographers, queuing patiently in the connected tunnel for one purpose alike, to get a picture taken on this spiral staircase.

OUT OF THE SHADOW

Akin to the queuing at the Hong Kong Quarry Bay neighborhood, there's only one staircase, everyone is more than willing to queue for their turn to have the staircase all to themselves to pose and be photographed.

This Spiral staircase is part of a structure call The Battle Box, a hidden WWII underground bunker in Fort Canning opened to the public not many years ago.

FOUND A SWEET SPOT

I am not queuing to pose but just want to take a good shot of the staircase, so will occasionally pop by when I'm nearby looking to see if I can get a good aiming spot, and was really in luck this time to snagged a hard to get sweet corner facing the staircase, not blocking people posing and nobody blocks me.

Unhindered, I snapped many shots as bubbly youths scrambled up the stair, posed and came back down.

POST EDITING

One pleasant outcome of the shots was, the place is clean, no litter for me to take out during post, no cigarettes butts, plastic bottles, tissues or bits of this and that, it was unbelievable.

There were many good shots but a pity faces were recognizable and deemed unsuitable for publishing so in no way these pictures can see the light of day, this piece which the lights and vintage stair lends a natural surreal charm to itself became the chosen one for "Out of the Shadow".
