holy change


I thought I'd better post something not too abstract and actually show what KL has to offer. This is Putrajaya Mosque. This caught my eye because of it's pink dome. I've never seen a mosque with such effete pastels. Pink is usually the colour associated with those of us who lead an alternative lifestyle (Pink Dollar, Pink Pound, Pink Triangle etc.) and when I saw this mosque, it led me to wonder if times are really changing. Does that mean we won't get stoned for a limp wrist and pashmina scarves? You go girlfriend!

Interesting blog... Made me wonder about KL. I been there once but your blog made me see things that i havent noticed in KL. I've never seen a pink mosque before. But isn't pink a color of peace and calmness also? Try wearing pink if you're in a confrontational mode... and nobody will attack you... or wear it if you got a headache...

Saw your other blogs also. Luv the diva series! Go, girl...err... I mean... Thats groovy Baby, yeah! ;P

hi edwin, i've you've been posting some very nice portraits lately. I'd love to post some too but I think people in Italy - and specially in Milan are not that eager to let the photograph. I'll try anyway.

You know tday I followed your instructions and posted a bigger size image, Though my sidebar goes all the way down. Actually as in your blog. Do you know a way to keep it aligned above?

Thanks

Really enjoying your building shots this week, Edwin. I thought only Eric and Bob laid down in the streets for great shots. :^) I've seen mosques here on the US west coast with terra cotta or peach colored domes, and a pale blue dome, so I think all colors are fair game. The porticos on those upper windows are amazing.

Pink! It's probably a hazard of mine to associate with so quickly with people of amazing and fabulous talent! :)

Yes, it's very calming and I do wear the colour sometimes. Kim, you're right...fair game. LOL!

Kala, can't wait for that pink door! It'll be stunning, no doubt.

Kris, nanti I pam gas dulu, then I buat drive ke sana and take plenty gambar for you.

Yes, a South Beach pilgrimage perhaps Shelly? That's so funny!

Thanks for adding me to your list.
Very cool of you.
Yesterday, I worked from 9am, to 6 am. 21 hours in one day.
They are not kidding when they talk about crunches here.
So when I find them, I'll starta list, and you'll be on it.
I also kinda miss you other blog.
I liked it.
Don't get me wrong, I like this one as well, and will come here from now on.
It a nicemosque. Do you know what inspired the pink colour on it?

Wow a pink mosque, this could be taken out of The Book of One Thousand and One Nights. It looks beautiful. By the way I know why the sidebar goes to the bottom, Frederick (I am telling you Edwin too, in case you want to know). Most of the times is the size of the images on the sidebar, but in this case is something as simple but hidden as the length of links inside the Daily photo form. You just have to take the longest one and shorten it and then shorten the form in the code. It happened to me too. Me I like blue but I reckon there's nothing wrong with pink, look at the mosque, it is spectacular.hehehe. Keep up the good work Edwin

Pretty in Pink...and real men wear PINK! You GO EDWIN! ;-)

Love the detail of this roof! I took a cake decorating class once and this reminds me of the swirly white "lacy" icing design effects you can do all over cakes, specially wedding ones...right "Martha?" LOL!

I love pink...reminds me of bubblegum! And don't forget my hair!

:-)

That pink is very interesting. Please, more shots, and a bigger image. Why dont you post always, say 1024 x 768 sized images ?

Attention, i don't say "NO CROP" is a must, but...

Louis-David: I'll still be posting on the other blog, just not as often as I used to. Thank you.

Carlos: Thanks for the tips and the compliments. My hero. Gracias amigo.

Now that you've said it, Martha would've had this as a centre piece for a party. Good one Ame!

Ok Chris, for you I'll try posting a larger image. it's because of the blog template and size. I tried but the picture bled into the side bar. Sometimes I post it on Flickr. You can get the larger (1024x768) image there.

Welcome back Nancee!

Manuel, my first foreign language comment. Gracias! (someone please tell me what he said ;) )

Zebigleb, you have a nice day too.

I have never seen or heard of a pink mosque either, I wish our mosque here in the San Diego were pretty, they are all just plain white. I have a shot of one of em on my blog.
