WordPress Photo Challenge: Reflections

reflection

The technique here is to turn the camera upside-down and rest the bottom of the camera on the ceiling of the vehicle in which you’re riding.  The camera is inverted.  Your camera will turn everything back right-side-up afterwards.

This way, I always get the ceiling reflection and the people in the train.

This was shot on an airport transfer train of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.


Fountain Fun!

 

Captured at KLCC.  They show this “Bellagio” style light and music show every night.  The kids go crazy and try to get wet without getting wet.  It’s very fun to watch.


It’s ART TIME!

That is what the Pavilion Mall in KL was proclaiming.  We were looking for the Havaianas (Brazilian sandals) shop, so we didn’t go in to look at the art, but they wanted us to know it was ART TIME.

Okay.  We get it.


Be careful how you read this…

 

As seen in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.  After a long day of educational training and a train ride and then a wait in the airport before my plane took off, this restaurant served as a source of amusement and innuendo.

Just be careful how you read this post…


WordPress Photo Challenge: Silhouette

 

Maybe it’s not the most traditional silhouette, but I snapped this within minutes of the lights of the Petronas Towers, in Kuala Lumpur, going on.  The evening sky served as the perfect background to the ever darkening towers.

What do you think?  Does it count as a silhouette?


Photo Friday: Vibrant

 

This photo is brought to you by the Kuala Lumpur International Airport…or their ceiling installations anyway.  These giant pinwheels light the hallways of the International Flights in the main terminal.


Going home…

…from KL again.  I love this city.  There are some weirdnesses, and I’ve really never travelled away from the downtown core, but where I’ve been has been pretty sweet.

So, here’s the Petronas Towers once again.


BIG Bond…the wordpress photo challenge

This week’s photo challenge is BIG.  I am in Kuala Lumpur at the moment and found this very big James Bond overlooking a major traffic route.  I guess they really like James Bond around here.


Wow! Banks are pretty.

Well, this one is.

The fountains in the front definitely help.


One quick post before I leave Kuala Lumpur…

Not much to say, except that I’m not going to have time to post later today as I’m flying home to my loving and lovely wife, amazingly talented daughter and awesomely gifted son.

I’ll see you soon family.

Here’s another shot of the Petronas towers – a little ode to symmetry.


Petronas Towers, part two

I’m liking Kuala Lumpur.  It’s an interesting city.  Admittedly, though, I’ve only seen a very small part of the downtown area, and I won’t see much more of it.  I’m quite comfortably restricted to my hotel and the places to which I can get on foot.

I think that I get a better sense of an area when I can walk it.
Oh. Yeah.  That’s the Petronas Towers again.  What do you think?


WordPress Photo Challenge: Urban

I’m in Kuala Lumpur.  For those of you who don’t know, the photo above is of the Petronas Towers.  They are at the heart of Kuala Lumpur.  This city is pretty amazing.  There are definitely some big high-rise canyons around here.  The towers are actually mostly on their own.  Not entirely, but the developers here have at least left them mostly alone, not surrounded and smothered.

Oh, and if you get the opportunity to take photos of them, hang around late enough to shoot them at night.  They are magnificent.
