DP Theme Day: What My City Is Known For


Kuala Lumpur is most well-known for the KLCC Petronas Twin Towers. As a Malaysian, I'm proud to have these towers as a representative to the World. And I have taken and posted many photos of them. So, the challenge was to show you an angle you'd never see on any travel brochures. Here it is. The towers are always gleaming and thanks to this man, and his many colleagues, that keep the pair clean.

135 DP members are showing the most well-known food, building, flower, road, landscape, politician, etc. This is going to be a very informative day. Enjoy!

Wonderful take on the subject; I would have been disappointed if (i) you didn;t show the towers, and (ii) you hadn't thought of a unique perspective. I am a happy girl :-)

Edwin you've taken a much more creative approach than me. I was tempted to do the same in Avignon, I have agreat photo of its reflection in the water with a duck crossing through, but I went for the postcard. Shame on me ;-)
