Malaysia – Through My Lens

Happy ‘Hump-Day’ to all. Today’s photographic presentation takes us to Malaysia. Now, I will be the first to admit that many of these photos are not particularly amazing, but Malaysia was the first time I started using a digital camera. An old Canon, can’t remember the exact model, but it took photos in an amazing 3 mega-pixels! I know, right? It was 2004, and I got the camera just before I left Australia for a round the world tour, and Malaysia was my first stop.

I visited the capital Kuala Lumpur, the beautiful island of Pangkor, Penang and Malacca. All with my brand new camera. Some of the photos are quite pixelated, that seems to be where a lot of colour or darkness is involved. I’m not sure why – I don’t think photos taken later came out like that. I also was there during the celebration of Thaipusam at the incredible Batu Caves, just outside Kuala Lumpur. Anyways, enjoy!

  1. I love Malaysia – one of the world’s most underrated countries, in my opinion! I’ve got an almost identical picture of Malacca from when I went there in 2004!

  2. We’re actually thinking of spending time in Malaysia in March and April. What were your impressions Andy? I’ve been to Penang many years ago but haven’t seen KL or Malacca.
