This blog post is part of the Random Sampling Singapore project. The Project aims to sample 100 places on the island of Singapore over a one year period in order to gain an unbiased and holistic view of the city state.

Ishishima 石岛 is the name of this coordinate. It means stone-island and it suits perfectly to this coordinate located on this special island in the north- east of Singapore. We went there with its Japanese name-giver on an sunny April morning and we were cycling until our rental bikes couldn’t carry us further. Only a view meters away of the exact location on a hut at the quarry’s edge we absorbed the spirit of Ishishima.

I don’t want to spoil this mystical coordinate with explanations and stories. Only one snapshot of the photographer should inaugurate this article from my side and here are the photographs from Hiroshi Sagane. The pictures are telling you so much more about the stone island:
