slow trickle


50mm lens. +2 Close-up filter. 2 legs straddled across a 5-foot deep drain and my body bent forward into a position I never thought possible. That was how this shot was taken. It was right after a light rain and I went walkabout around the neighbourhood. I don't know why this caught my attention. It just proves to show that my mind is in the gutter. Simply filthy I tell you.

Well, you might be turning into a dirty old man, but the photo is certainly stunning, Ed. It's just one moment in time, and I can hear the water trickle. Great one.

I KNOW that I left a comment on here before I went to bed last night! I said that I hope that no-one saw you taking this photo, as you described it, and I'm impressed with the technique you used to capture the water trickle.

KL needs to recycle her water. Sudah tak ada air dan perlu paip dari Pahang.

Maybe KLDP starts a campaign to ask KLites to recycle! :-)

Sorry? Recycle water? Come on K'pok, you aren't serious? You lived here once. You know how the mindset is. I can start something but I don't know how people will react to it.

Great work Edwin. Big format. Details, speed, DOF. I see you are exploring the secrets of photography. That combined with your exquisite artistic inspiration can turn into a real burst of creation.
