I took this shot at the Taman Sari Bali resort in North-western Bali. I got up hoping for a beautiful sunrise. What I got was this…not what I was looking for, but still kind of pretty. A little illumination from the sliver of sunlight.
Pretty flower. Delicate flower.
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.
I posted this photo yesterday, but in full color. My question to you is: which looks better? Yesterday in color? Or today’s in black and white?
Btw, this is the life I’ve come to accept as my everyday life here in Jakarta. I had no expectations when I moved here, but I’ve found a routine that seems to work well enough and shows me scenes like this on my commute to and from my school.
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.
