Earn Your Stripes
It was a warm, humid evening in the famous Chinatown area of Kuala Lumpur, officially known as Petaling Street. But a bloke simply has to carry a camera all the time, right? You just never know what you'll see next. We were told by our concierge that the best time to visit Chinatown is in the evening - and it was great advice.
The place has a flavour that is impossible to capture in a single frame. There is a constant bustle, there are stalls everywhere. There are street vendors, there are stalls that stretch as far as the eye can see. There are bargains to be had in any line of purchase - and should you feel the need, there are plenty of places to stop and sample the local cuisine.
I must have been concentrating really hard on my photography, because I completely missed the opportunity to buy or tie or three. Next time, I'll race you there. As contests go, it could be neck and neck - but it could even end in a tie!
