You have no idea how long I waited for someone to pop his or her face through this window. I was rewarded with these ladies, the main one with cap and in white, providing that contrast against the background. Hello from the other side.
Month: June 2016
Outside Dataran Pahlawan. I like firing my shutter at crossings. The movement and the sometimes unexpected results are part of what I enjoy much about Street Photography. I enjoyed the natural ambience of people near and far, each doing their own thing. Capturing the scene. Capturing life.
A begger in Dutch Square, Malacca. There seems to be at least one in every land I visited. Whether we should give to a beggar is a subject much debated on. I would usually do it for the simple motivation to keep my heart soft.
I’m drawn to this photo I’ve taken. I see the man, soaked in the ambience of this place. Many would say that he’s a tourist. But I feel he’s more a traveller. The tourist sees what he has come to see whereas the traveller simply sees what he sees. Then I look at the lady, who had eyes on the man. She was here probably because of him. To me, that’s a beautiful thing. I know, because I’m in love too.
There’s a touch of the modern in traditional Jonker Walk. I was taken in by the interesting perspective lines in this shop – the diagonals of the shelves stretched to a point where the dotted lights above took over and led us all the way to the back. The presence of this Sales Attendance clinched the deal. No I didn’t buy anything but I was sure happy with the shot.
I know that Street Photography is my crave, more so when I’m travelling. However, this photo of a father bonding with his son over a twister potato stick reminded me that relationship with my family is more important. The main reason I was in Malacca was to spend time with my family.
Today’s post has to involve these happy and celebratory light air holders commonly known as balloons. Firstly, I feel that they reflect the ever festive atmosphere of Jonker Walk perfectly. Secondly, I’m celebrating because Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship today. I know it’s very random but I’m a big fan of the greatest basketball player in this era. Against all odds, Lebron led his team and they clawed back from a 3-1 games deficit to clinch the title. Only NBA fans will know how impossible that was – winning three games in a row within a final series, playing away and beating a team that has the highest number of wins in NBA history. Congratulations Lebron, the Cavaliers and the people of Cleveland!
