My nine days long holiday in my beloved hometown, Kuching has come to an end, and I cannot believe how fast time travels. Nonetheless, I have made good use of my time, spending a great deal of quality time with dearest mum and of course, catching up with many friends. Somehow, I felt I did not have enough time, and the final few days in Kuching were extremely hectic that I wished I had more time, at least a couple of more days. We all know too well that good things don’t last forever, and yes, the holiday has come to an end.
I purposely flew back to Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, so I have my Sunday free to breathe. Feeling like stretching whatever little time I had left before returning to work, I decided to have a rather spontaneous shutter therapy session. Luke joined me in the morning and we attacked Petaling Street. I brought along the old, but still alive Olympus E-520 and just one lens, the Sigma 30mm F1.4. I was not planning to do anything extra adventurous for this session, all I had in mind was to let myself drift along the streets, allowing my eyes to feast on the beauties around me and capture them as they come to attract my attention. Did I have anything specific in mind? Not really. Sometimes, randomness can produce unexpectedly amazing surprises.
All images were taken with Olympus DSLR E-520 and Sigma 30mm F1.4 lens.
General camera settings:
Aperture Priority with Exposure Compensation adjusted necessarily, F1.4 (mostly), ISO 100, JPEG converted to Monotone in post-processing.
