A car's moon roof,
I should say. (Sun roof can be opened, moon roof can open half way). I think my car
needs a good wash, hehe ..
Taking pictures requires a good mood. When you are not in the right frame of mind,
just forget about it. However, when situation requires you to act, I would suggest
you to think of a topic which is easier to start. Over a late evening, a few Chinese
students came to my office and ask if I can accompanying them to shoot some pictures
of KLCC Petronas Twin Towers next door as the earlier attempt they made were quite
bad, reluctantly, I went with them with my portable. Ideally, if it had been an hour
or so, the sky will be blue but usually the sky after 7.30 p.m. had turned too dark
for my comfort as it was already 8.30 p.m.; so I suggested to them by using the natural
surrounding to shoot rather than shooting plain, static photos of Twin Towers. "Framed
the subject" is the word. Here are some resulting photos of the KLCC / Petronas
Twin Towers. There are not great pictures, but only serves to provide a lead on HOW-TO
Spot light, facility (like this pedestrian stand) and even the trees or others can
be a good supplementary factor for photo composition. (203k

The trees and
vegetation is the KLCC / Petronas Twin Towers public park area was works of a great,
late Brazilian landscape artist (it was his last project). He has spent more than
3 years running around Peninsular and East Malaysia in identifying what species would
be planted here. The natural surrounding of these plants and trees also indirectly
offer a frame if you find they help in making photos of Petronas Twin Towers a little
abnormal from the normal shots.
The ever busy
Jalan Ampang where KLCC and Petronas Twin Towers locates.
Sorry, this photo illustrates a
little motion The exposure is 1/2 second. but I guess the pose was good. I have quite
a few others with KLCC/ Petronas Twin Towers in a clearer backdrop but lacks the
good compositional element of this one. Errrr ... it is quite offending to take candid
shot such as this, be careful.
A heavenly place
was made into a Hell in a day.
The two pictures
here were taken in JUST a
DIFFERENCE within one DAY
! The left of the Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC) with a crystal blue sky was taken at
noon, on the 7th of October, 2006; the right was on at the same time on the 8th of
October, 2006. What was happening ? well ... Courtesy of a dense HAZE from our
neighboring Indonesia with practice of open burning. This
scenario has been on for the last century and has been affecting ASEAM countries
like Malaysia, Singapore, southern Philippines and as far as Thailand. This has not
only affecting health of millions but also resulting in deterioting industrial and
tourism industry activities greatly. All our Indonesian government can do each year
is : The MONSOON rain will definitely come, ONE DAY (to put out the flames)...@$#^@#(!@(~~~!!
but this year was the first year officially the President of Indonesian openly apologized
in advance to the neighbors if it ever occurred again in this year. Previously, official
denial was the practice but forgetting modern geological science has satellite pictures
to show the where are hot spots on open burning in Indonesia. This has really made
us mad...neither the international comunity has offered any assistance. PICTURES of Indonesian
HAZE ATTACK 1998 (worst,
when it combines with the Asian financial Crises); Photo of 2005 state of Haze came from Indonesia. (230k
