Woke up early in the morning, took an early train down to the city center as the sun rose. As I arrived, I walked along the streets already full of people with various activities. Did I have anything specific in mind? Not really, all I wanted to do was click the shutter button, there was that itch you know. With the Sony A350 and the 50mm mounted in hand, I strolled along the familiar streets. I found birds, cats and friendly people. I snapped them all. I then came across a lion dance, and I also took a few photographs. As the morning started to give way to afternoon, I found a nice coffee shop, sat myself down and ordered a nice glass of iced tea. I had a bowl of noodles to kill my hunger from all that walk.
So what have I done in the morning? I met a few strangers, talked to them, witnessed an enjoyable lion dance performance, saw some really cute cats and actually stopped to play with them for a bit (the cats on the streets are surprisingly friendly) and finally had something to eat. Somehow, photography was not even the priority, but the camera kept clicking of course, and this is what I call, shutter therapy. It is not just taking photographs, you have to be out there enjoying yourself, immersing yourself into your surroundings and blend in. Take part. And connect !!
All images were taken with Sony A350 and DT 50mm F1.8 lens

It feels so good to be back in KL, and attacking the streets again. Oh that itch has not gone away. Gonna go out and shoot more soon.
