Seen from Boon Tat Street

Here's the sketch today drawn at Boon Tat Street.

That on the right is the Nagore Durgha shrine. It was built by Muslims of southern India in 1828-1930.

The street on the left is Amoy Street, and on the other side it's Telok Ayer Street. When the shrine was first built, Telok Ayer Street was actually a beach! That was such a long time ago. The area has since been reclaimed with land and is now populated with shops and high-rise offices.

This is the original sketch that I think I drew in 45 minutes before I had to rush to work. I planned to show the tower in the foreground which is now cropped off. Turns out this composition is better than what I had planned because the shrine now fills more of the space. I added the graphite wash in the office.
