Feel the environment

I was at KLCC on Saturday with the intention of taking pictures of the famous twin towers and also the big Christmas trees at the concourse. I believe the twin towers is one of the most photograph place in Malaysia. Do you believe me if I say photography is a way to relieve stress? Especially landscape photography, all you have with you is a piece of tool that allows you to freeze time, just enough for you to capture the essence of your object.

As I was walking outside, the evening wind was blowing. There are a lot of people sitting outside basking whatever that is left of the sun, families, couples, children, tourist and “photographer” like me. I slowly walk toward the bridge in the centre, along the way I could see a mother taking a photo of her lovely daughter, capturing a beautiful smile. Near the fountain, I already saw a “photographer” shooting away with his DSLR at the majestic towers, without any weapon to defend itself, the tower just surrender by displaying its best views.

As I reached the bridge, I remember the pointers that I read from magazines and internet “Feel the environment” they said. I could see there are already a lot of people taking photos, some with their mobile phones, their point & shoot and some with the SLR or DSLR. There are also those who just stand there and enjoy the view, 2 lovely towers standing tall, pride of the nation deflecting the last shine from the sun. I just hoist myself up the railing and close my eyes, holding my bag, the hiding place of my tools to capture the Twin Towers.

Ksssh, the sound of the shutter, freezing time, below are some photos that I took, I guess it’s not exceptional or excellent but I think it’s not bad for someone who is there to just “Feel the environment”….

Wow... your pictures taking is getting spectacular!

The twin tower pictures are taken from different angle and time (usually ppl taking the pic on a bright sunny day or evening). Love the dusk scene...

Yup... I agree that photography is also another way of relieving stress for me beside listening to music and writing my feeling in diaries (blog), hehehe

Selba, yeap I choose that time as normally everyone would love the bright lights shining at night but I would like to capture the time when the sun goes down and lights ready to lit up and moreover I did not bring my tripod and based on what I read, the best light is the first and the last light of the day... hahaha
