holy water


Whaddaya think? I had another picture to post but as I was very inspired (and envious) by Raymond's wonderful night shots, I bought myself a fancy new tripod and spent a couple of hours last night enjoying the scenery and people of KL. Had a conversation with a mad man who said he was a police warden and a dancer. I gave him some money to get a decent meal. Later on I bumped into some people who recognized me and we spoke for half an hour about the inner workings of the entertainment industry.

This is the fountain at Masjid Negara (National Mosque). Am I becoming pious? Maybe. I find mosques fascinating. Might be the first step that leads me back to prayer. Hallelujah!

After seeing your comment on my blog that you just bought a tripod, I already knew that you will have some great night shots to come. And I'm right! This is really cool.

What a great shot, it was worth it to buy tripod, first you got great shot, second you had a very interesting evening with very interesting people. I like your charitable nature very much.
Have a nice Friday night and hope to see some more night photos of Kuala Lumpur.

Yeah, you are pretty mistic lately, hahaha. This holy fountain has a beautiful design. When are you going to show the holy people you captured with the new tripod. Thanks for your comments.

Thank you Aggie and Selana ;)
(even with the tripod I got some unstable shots)

Raymond, thanks dude. I still need to figure out settings. Then I hope to capture shots like yours.

making babies Anne? all the best to the both of you but get a tripod first...maybe it'll help *wink wink* :p

Insha-allah Tanty.

Jazzy, I try to talk to as many people that approach. Sometimes all a lonely person needs is understanding. I'm just glad he wasn't violent.

Yes Kris, I'll use it as a tongkat (walking stick). My knees are wonky from the extreme weather change we're having, heat/rain/heat/rain/heat/haze/rain ;)

Neo, thank you. So many DPs inspire me and lately these religious places too... Religion, a clarion call to acceptance.

Ovelikios, thanks. I love my city!

Carlos, it's always a pleasure having you here and your post today was amazing! As for the holy people? Well, it was late and there were more unholy things happening ;)

Hmm, tripods can help make babies? I don't think I'll be getting a tripod! On the other hand, for the chance to get beautiful photos like this one, it might be worth it! ;)

Wow! Lovely. I have fond memories of time spent in Kuala Lumpur about (oh dear!) 30 years ago.

Tripods rule! Very cool shot, very angular.

Get out and shoot more in the dark. Testify to night shots Edwin! :)

Very geometric fountain and photo - it looks like it belongs on another planet to me. Very exotic looking. ;-)

Felicia, get one! It really helps. As for the babies, I was being cheeky ;)

Passante. the city has changed tremendously. I was only a child when you were here and those were some good days.

JP, you know I'll be doing more. I got one of the best tripods and I'm gonna get my money's worth, I tell you. And the opportunity to talk to people is something I never miss.

Dana, yeah, I kinda had that feeling when I saw it. Like Stargate...they came from another planet! ;)

Thanks again guys.
