An Inside View Of The Flyer’s Cabin…

The Singapore Flyer cabins are pleasantly large, and the style of the construction with large windows gives an excellent view outside.

The only downside is that there is sometimes a reflection in the glass, which can be best combatted by putting the lens as close to the glass as possible.

That was rather restrictive at times, but this is also one of these times when you have to accept that photographs are a poor substitute for actually seeing the view with your own eyes.

At least there are only five of us in the cabin, Kiwi Daughter, Little Mr and Myself, plus the two gents we were sharing the cabin with. The cabins are built to  accommodate twenty-eight people comfortably.

For us however, there were no crowds pushing for the best position, or hogging one spot where the view of a specific building or area was at it’s best.

In unspoken agreement with our fellow visitors we just moved quietly around, not spending too long in any spot, sharing the cabin as best we could.

At one point we found that all five of us were at the same end of the capsule so I took the opportunity to try and get a photograph of as much of the inside as possible.

There are long seats in the center of the cabin, so I can also just rest and take in the view as well. Of course I also take photographs of the other cabins, they make for beautiful architectural studies, seemingly “floating” as we go around. I don’t want to try and get my head around how the mechanics of how these capsule / cabin / pods manage to make a journey in a full circle, with barely a hint of movement, in an upright position all the way. Let’s just call it magic.
