Photos of the iconic Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and HDB blocks were spotted online.

It seems like Hollywood actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has got an affinity for Singapore. 

Last Friday (Aug 21), the 39-year-old American posted an open call on Facebook for photos of our little red dot. 

He wrote in his post: "Hi, Singapore! Looking for cool photos taken anywhere in Singapore for a project on my site hitRECord. If you've got a photo in your camera roll that captures the beauty of Singapore, add it to the project."

Needless to say, Singaporeans jumped at the opportunity to share their submissions on the site. There are more than 1,800 submissions as of Wednesday evening. 

Views of the scenic city centre were popular, especially the iconic Marina Bay Sands.

Others got creative by playing around with the symmetry of local residential buildings.

Popular hangout spots like Gardens By The Bay were no exception either.

There were also some traditional shots that might stir up a sense of nostalgia.

This is not the first time the actor has posted about Singapore. He previously shared a photo of a woman holding an umbrella while standing barefoot on a flooded walkway in Singapore on Facebook, challenging writers to "tell the story of this scene in only one sentence." 

Joseph has starred in movies such as (500) Days of Summer, Inception, Premium Rush and The Dark Knight Rises. Aside from being an actor, he is also a filmmaker, singer and entrepreneur.
