From my previous blog entry you would know that I spent almost the whole Saturday shooting my friend's wedding. The day after, I told myself if I managed to wake up early and did not feel too exhausted I would pick up the camera and hit the streets in Malacca. I did wake up rather early and felt quite energetic despite the wedding shoot a day before, so I went to Jonker Walk and had a slow, relaxing walk and shot whatever subjects that caught my attention.
To keep things easy and simple I only had the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and one lens with me, the M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8, and it was a short an hour and a half walk, before I headed back to meet up with my other friends for brunch. I did get some shots that I am quite happy with, and I am sharing them in this blog entry. I did however wish I would just walk a few more hours and explore some of the inner streets of beautiful, historical Malacca. One day, maybe I will just spend a weekend in Malacca and do nothing but shoot and eat!
Portrait of a Stranger
Modernized Malacca, my beloved State? Or something like that being loosely translated
So I saw this dude from quite a distance and I decided he could be a good subject for me to compose against something interesting around him. Standing and leaning against the pole and blending in, being relaxed and ready... oh wait, he has a camera! Then it hit me (I have not had my coffee yet) he was also a street photographer, patiently observing and waiting for the perfect moment to happen. Then he spotted me and I smiled, and we walked our separate paths.
After all that walk, I got hungry and I needed coffee badly.
I am not even sure if I will have time for shutter therapy this weekend, but my hands have gotten unbearably itchy!
