KL Photowalk: March 8th 2014 - KL Central

I have planned this photowalk specially for my fellow St. Ignatius Church's photographers who wish to have a feel of street photography and have fun along the way. I can explain to them the theory but I believe in the street itself gives them a better understanding.

I knew about the Photowalk organised by Fotografi Jalanan Malaysia which I longed to join but my own plan has to go on. Beside my time at 9.30AM and their time 7.30AM is a bit out. My transport depend on my wife and I can not force her to come earlier that the time she had decided.
Maybe one I will join their walk.

My initial tavelling plan was from Kelana Jaya LRT Station with a stop at KL Central for a few shots of street images and then head for Brickfield Monorail Station with some more shots. Then from Brickfield Monorail Station take a train to Berjaya Times Square.
Follow by a walk on foot while shooting any intersting characters or activities on the street from Berjaya Times Square to Pudu Wet Market. Pudu Wet Market will be our main shooting area.

At the eleven hour, they decided not to go as that same Saturday night, there will be a Church Event namely RCIA 2013/2014 Rite of Election. By the way, I am also one of the photographer that will shoot that night. Well, passion is a very strong motivation.

I kept my mind on going and on the same late Friday night a fellow street photographers from KL Street Photographers group whom I knew as Joey Tai who is also an Olympus OM-D shooter but never meet him before, called me on another event called 'Holi - Festival of Colours'. He ask me whether I am interested and told him that I am not free for the shooting and ended with "I am going to Pudu Wet Market this Saturday."

The next thing I know, I have a new shooting buddie. The plan changed and he will pick me up at KL Central instead. KL Central is not my area and one area with another is almost the same at KL Central.

While waiting and looking for Joey's car, here's my shots to cool the day.

All images taken with Olympus OM-D E-M5 and 12-50mm f3.5-6.3

It's a match, Joey. According to my plan, I should be doing "intro to street photog" but it seems that someone has a better plan for us. Beside on Dec 5th, you did mentioned, "Hope to meet up with you in the near future."
It's a pleasure to shoot with you eventhough we have the different style. Hope we can shoot again after my Malacca shooting vacation (Mar 14-16). Cheers!
