Olympus Street Photography Walkabout-Petaling Street

Greetings dear friends and I would like to share with you another wonderful day of fun in the street of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Last Saturday, September 6th, I have joined Olympus Street Photography Walkabout-Petaling Street which was organised by Robin Wong, a recognised Malaysian Street Photographer and the event fully backed by Olympus Malaysia. It's being a privilage and really glad to walk and shot with Robin Wong and the awesome Olympus users. I am also glad to see a few familiar faces like Luke Ding, an Admin for KL Street Photographers on Facebook and Flickr and Amir, who is also a KL Street Photographer member. Beside I also meet for the first time my Facebook fiends like Johan Sopiee.

I specially thanks Robin Wong for lending me his M.Zuiko lens 25mm F1.8 which I plan to purchase but I have to get a real feel of it in the street first. Verdict: It's awesome lens for street and meet my shooting style.

On the other note, I am admin for a Flickr group called OMD Street Photographers. Feel free to join the group if you are on Flickr. You also may join KL Street Photographer (Flickr) and KL Street Photographers (Facebook)

I started off my journey from Kelana Jaya LRT Station at 8.33AM where my beloved wife Agnes dropped my off and I thank Robin Wong for arranging this walk to start at 9.00AM instead of his normal time of 8.00AM. I reached at Pasar Seni LRT Station at 8.55AM and made a good rush to Central Market, our meeting place for the event.

Here is our fun and joyful journey through the street of Petaling Street.

All images taken with Olympus OM D E-M5 and lens 25mm f1.8 or otherwise stated.

To the new friends whom I just met during the walkabout session: You are awesome and wonderful photographers and love to walk and shoot with you again in the future. Forgive me if I am always pointing my camera to you during the event as I can not help it. While on the street I have limited time to shoot and I really utilised it with shooting as much as I can. I just love shooting and I love moments in human daily life that's why I am known as Moment Catcher in Flickr. Some of my interesting shots on Flickr.
On the other note, if everything goes well, I may may have my first Street Exhibition with my group of friends like Mahfuz Jaffar, Agoes Alwie, Wan Zuharuddin, Rosli Natiman, Manap Semenanjung (a painter) and others on Sunday, October 12th, 2014 at Laman Medan Pasar, Kuala Lumpur.
