Mr Freeze

Walking in Bukit Bintang you can sometimes see strange and wonderful things. This fellow created quite a stir when he started his act. He just stood there motionless sometimes for minutes.

Walkabout 22 October 2008

I went on walkabout today. Filled my bag with lots of film and just drove to the middle of Kuala Lumpur, parked the car and went walkabout.

During the walk, I went to Chow Kit Road which has a large market and people sell all sorts of stuff. It is also a place where you see a lot of disabled people sitting with small packets of tissue paper to sell. You buy them for about RM1.

Me and My Pentax LX

One of my dear uncle who was an avid photographer (he passed away 4 years ago) gave me one of his old camera many years ago. It was a Pentax LX with an assortment of lenses like the Pentax SMC 50mm f/1.2. The Pentax LX is a classic camera brought out by Pentax to compete with the Canon F-1 and the Nikon F3 which was the top of the range cameras at that time. This is a camera that was built to last. I am not sure when my uncle bought his but I’m pretty sure that it must now be at least 20 years old. Apart from the sturdy construction, it also boasts a revolutionary metering technique which allows the camera to meter directly off the film plane which makes for truly accurate metering.

I decided to dig up the camera and sent it for servicing and am now taking pictures with it.
