Sunset in PJ

Sunset in PJ along the federal highway
Nowadays weather is dull and boring because of haze. More often than not what you always see is only flat lighting with white sky which is unfavourable to photographer and not exciting to take picture. The last time I stumbled on the beautiful sky with wonderful sunset was somewhere in the middle of last month. I happened to take along my camera at that time so I stopped on the flyover crossing the federal highway near KWSP building and managed to snap one shot before the sky turned dark......

On the weekend before last I jumped at the opportunity for shooting fast action as I rarely do that. Ted proposed that we go and shoot mountain bike race at Taman Tun Dr Ismail on the bright Sunday morning instead of our early plan to do street shooting in KL.

Enuff said. It was full of fast paced action. Although I was not very happy with my loaned camera lent by Nikon as mine was under repair (Nikon was so generous to loan me one unit of its consumer body while mine was undergoing repair) I can safely say that it performed quite well (Nikon F65).

It was fun shooting those cyclists who either cycled or pushed their bike as they couldnt stand cycling on the very steep slope at times. And thanks to Ted for giving me a tip or two on how to shoot fast speed, do panning and create zoom burst (sorry Ted zoom burst didnt work well and I am not going to show you the result here in public) hehehe.

Anyway enjoy viewing various action that our participants had to endure and some of the spectators as well..

Do visit Ted's fotopages &
matt's for the same story of event.

Tanjong Malim

View all 12 photos...
Tanjong Malim which is 75km north of Kuala Lumpur used to be a peaceful and quiet small town. What people know about Tanjong Malim is probably for its MPSI (Sultan Idris Teaching College) or for its famous pau (steamed bun with chicken curry, beef curry or sweet concoction filling). However now things have drastically changed. Firstly, MPSI has been upgraded to a university which means many more students per intake every year contributing to the drastically rising demand for rented houses, food, and all the necessities that students will normally need in their daily life.

Secondly the development of Proton City where Proton (Malaysian local car manufacturer) main manufacturing plant is set up there in Tanjong Malim. With both chief contributing factors Tanjong Malim cant help but succumb to the demand for the development which is progressing at break-neck speed at the moment.

The row of new shops and shophouses as well as new housing garden are mushrooming. Houses are selling like hot 'pau' now. Once a quiet town now people in Tanjong Malim have to put up with traffic jam! Before the further development rids Tanjong Malim of its precious old and colonial buildings I took the opprtunity to capture them for the new generation of Tanjong Malim people and Malaysian in general. As I go there every now and then to pay a visit to my brother-in-law who lives there I believe I have more opportunities to record many other interesting image of Tanjong Malim.

Do enjoy the pictures of old buildings and shophouses which may vanish some day to make way for the development of the new modern shops.

Night Photography

The high court building
The venerable Kota Darul Ehsan
The venerable Kota Darul Ehsan
To be frank, I am not really fond of night photography. The black space that dominate the whole scene looks gloomy to me except for a certain occassion like fireworks or full moon.

However I have a few night scenes in my collection....Do enjoy viewing them while waiting for my latest entry
