I am currently stationed full time at a construction site at Mont' Kiara, which is located very near to a Malay village Segambut. I have been taking the bus which travels directly from Mont' Kiara to Chow Kit (where my usual street hunting ground is), and I cannot help but notice the stretch of small road full of village life. There were small shops and huts being set up all along that small road selling alll sorts of items ranging from groceries, vegies and fruits to hardwares. It was during the off-work hours in late evening that the entire area seemed to buzz up in such lively manner it always called out to me to just walked the road and snap away with my PEN.
All images were taken with Olympus PEN E-PL1 and 14-42mm mk1 kit lens.
bicycle is a regular form of transport in a Kampung, more convenient to maneuver the smaller roads.
Rain outside a barber shop.
I love how everything is blue, except the boy's red shirt, amplifying his burst of laughter.

I decided to attack Segambut today, and I walked about more than half an hour from my work location to the said small road. As I started to warm up to some of the photography opportunities there, the Photography God decided to call the day off and ordered heavy rain that poured like there was no tomorrow. I only managed to fire away less than 20 shots !! Disappointed as I was for not having a satisfying shutter therapy session after a long day of work, I know that I can always come back to the same place on another day. Nonetheless, not all was lost, I still did grab a few shots which I was quite happy about. Sometimes, quantity does not really matter, agreed?
It was indeed refreshing to divert away from my usual hunting grounds and explore new grounds. I will make a return again one day.
