up high


It's so good to have friends who come visit and book hotel rooms on higher floors. Here's one of the many condominiums that grace our KL skyline. Nothing spectacular of course but I love how the gray clouds frame it. Yup, it's been raining lately and thank heavens for that. It helps to wash away the haze that's still plaguing our air. And the rain didn't stop my friends and me from going to the fairground last night. Wet and wild (and no need for bikinis either!)

Tomorrow I start a new series. Come and see. Looks like it's going to be a good Monday.

Dynamic! Great shot, Edwin.
We also have good long soak (but not that strong) since this morning.

I agree about the clouds. I love that sky and the quality of light and how dark those trees look... and the hills in the background... and the turquoise colour of the scaffolding on the second building.

I think it's one of my favorites so far... I have a thing for photos of high-rise apartments :)

Looks like rain is NOT over yet. Ominous sky. Tall building must give great scenic views.

The skyline has changed so much since I was in Malaysia 5 years ago. Is that Jalan Duta in the backdrop? I like the dark skies looming in the background.

Ok Kris, series sudah started ;)

K'pok and Shagen, this is at the corner of Yap Kwan Seng and Jalan Tun Razak.

Sally, I agree. Everything is looking the same nowadays. Identity and culture compromised.

Mike C, thanks dude!

Thanks everyone. Hope you like the new series :)

Edwin, Love your site and the photos.
Speaking of thunderous clouds, I am sitting here on a Tuesday evening on the 68th floor of Tower 2, Petronas Twin Towers. I can't see outside my window - complete grey. Everynow and then lightning strikes the tower and I can hear the electrical charge on the metal just outside my window. I love it after the storm is over. The sky is fresh and I look down at the clouds below. Its magical. You'd go beserk with your camera if you were here after the storms. The build up to the storms is quite fantastic too. I watch the clouds and rain roll in from Batu Caves, hitting the Towers in just minutes.

Those units at the top must have a spectacular view, but I'm not sure about opening my window.
