Expect nothing but I got juxtaposition!

 Yesterday,I got the meaning of expect nothing in street photography.Accompanying my wife to get back her watch sent for repairs at a shop along Jalan Bukit Bintang,I took along my compact camera Lumix LX5 to shoot something that may look interesting.On arrival,when I saw something worth snapping,I read the notice that my SD was NOT inside the camera.I forgot to put it back after downloading my cycling photos I took in the morning.So,what choice do  I have other than using my mobile phone.

The photo shown above is a picture of my photowalking group when I was with them some months back in KL.We were armed to the teeth,so to speak but not yesterday! The same thing happened when I was in Alamanda a month ago.I saw a group of buskers and yet I didnot have a camera with me.So,below is another shot with my Note3.

Below is something on juxtaposition.I was amused to see a man carrying a bag in the advertisement photo was looking at the ladies waiting for the green traffic light to cross the road.Otherwise,it is just a shot of four ladies on the sidewalk.
In street photography,nothing can be planned.I just shoot whatever comes along the way.The pun is intended.However,with some experience,I knew where to wait for something interesting that may take place.Many a time,I got nothing worth sharing..

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
