Fulfilling Photomarathonasia

It was a long and tiring Sunday for Photomarathon Asia (the Malaysian edition). 9 hours of shooting and a few more of waiting for the results. The skies were brilliant but the sun was unrelenting! There were 3 themes for the day; Malaysia Leads, Lunch Break and Abandoned Lot. I am tired but also glad I won a Merit prize for the 3rd theme.

The photo that won me the prize...

The poor soul was passed out on the street and I wanted to take a shot of him while preserving his dignity but not showing his face. Also needed to show an aspect of someone abandoned by society in an unmistakable environment. The person was passed out. Incapacitated.

Glashutte Original's offering for Malaysia's 50th Anniversary

Glashutte Original Malaysia Merdeka 50th Anniversary special porcelain Meissen dials - viewing at the GO Boutique in Starhill. My thanks to Royz, GO Boutique Manager in Starhill, Kuala Lumpur, for graciously allowing me to photograph these special Senators with porcelain Meissen dials depicting old style maps of Malaysia/Malaya to commemorate the 50th anniversary of our country's independence. It is interesting to note the differences in all the pieces in their map details making each piece truly unique.

There are 5 pieces of each; Platinum, Pink Gold, White Gold, Pink Gold with diamonds and White Gold with diamonds.
