Singapore’s Colorful Alkaff “ArtBridge”
For more photos and videos from Singapore’s colorful pedestrian bridge, visit the Alkaff Bridge location page.
The central business district of Singapore is home to the 55-meter, 230-ton Alkaff Bridge. Popularly called Singapore’s ArtBridge, the pedestrian bridge was designed to resemble a tongkang, a traditional boat common to the region.
Built in 1999, the bridge was painted in 2003-2004 by renowned Filipino artist Pacita Abad and a team of paintbrush-wielding rope specialists who transformed it into the vibrant landmark it is today.

Hashtag Highlight: #portraitsinpuddles
Earlier this year, Adam Elkins (@bigmanjapan) began a hashtag series called #portraitsinpuddles, featuring photos of people standing next to puddles, their reflections cast in the water below. For his portraits, Adam splits the frame between the physical and reflected, showing his subject in the top half and their reflection in the bottom half of his photos.
A few other Instagrammers have discovered Adam’s tag and added portraits of their own. The next time you’re out with a friend after a rainy day, try your hand at a #portraitsinpuddles photo!
