55mm @ 1/200 | f7.1

Shot in Masjid Jamek. I like the contrast between the old Indian barber shop with the newer mobile phone shop. The old man seems to be caught in this transition.

This is a wonderful photograph.

There is such a contrast also in my country.

People in my country are not interested in them.

However, the foreigner seems to be surprised.

We do tend to pay less attention to something that we see everyday. Your photos in your blog are amazing.. I'm trying to figure out how to comment there x)

Have to LOVE the classic feeling in this picture.

Taking photos of people is not easy - it's pain in the ass for me trying to snap people in action. I still remember an old man at Perlabuhan Kelang acting aggressively when I try to photo him in action.

This man was just sitting there oblivious to his surrounding! So I *clickclickclick*. I think I would freak out and flee the scene @1/1000s if anyone responds aggressively to me :P
