Weekend came, and I woke up early on a Saturday morning, eager to go out for some Shutter Therapy, on the streets. This has somehow become quite a routine for me, and I feel really great about this. It was as if a long stretch of week has ended, and there IS something to look forward to, and to heal the battle scars collected throughout the dreadful week behind.
This morning, I had two friends tagging along me, Wong and Mike, both also avid Olympus supporters. It was wonderful to enjoy shutter therapy with friends, and definitely walking around with buddies to watch your back was a safer option, especially on the streets of KL. This time, I armed myself with 50mm most of the time, and I dared myself to move closer and closer to my subjects. I know I have probably overspilled my brains out in the previous couple of entries, hence I shall keep this less wordy, and shift the attention to the photographs instead.
Waiting for something. Time, maybe? In Pudu, you find a lot of man or older age, hanging around.
Wow, what a long, long ciggy you have there dude.

Children make very good street photography subjects, no?
Something happened in the basket.

A pile of treasures.
If you can't lift them, you roll them around.
Get out of the way, or I will run into you !!
The onions are heavy. Can a camera capture weight?
Who wakes up early on weekends anyway.
Playing with Taugeh (bean sprouts).

Finally, a responsible, and safety-conscious citizen !!
After the morning street walk, we decided to stop by one of the Wonton Noodles shop "168"at a shop corner. Shutter therapy sessions consumes lots of energy, thus we needed to replenish our lost calories. Also, I had the chance to try out Wong's Leica "D Vario-Elmarit" 14-50mm F2.8-3.5 standard zoom lens. All the food photographs below were taken with that Leica 14-50mm, at ISO200, F3.5, and 50mm.
Glimmering water under morning sun. I have to admit, even the sight of a cold glass of drink was heavenly after a great round of shutter therapy session.
Wonton noodles. Yummy. I loved the roasted pork. And more importantly, I loved that Leica lens. *gulp
Will there be more shutter therapy sessions? I sure have not had enough yet !!! The weekend has not ended.
