Borneo Market at Dusk
is shot with a new helmet rig that I made the night before I left on
this job... I was too tall, and my walk too bumpy but Wani (a
local) gets great results.
I like the light at sunset...
a drive through kl
Petronas towers Lobby
Petronas towers were the tallest buildings in the world until a while
back. This spinning sculptue is near the base..
Petronas Towers up
is the towers looking up.
Feeding Parrots at KL Bird Park
Borneo Dance from centre stage
shot will probably get audio one of these days. We were lucky enough to
be allowed to put the ladybug in the centre of the stage and its
great to pan around and find yourself in the middle of the dance...This
is one of my favorite shots.
Peacock in Kuala
A peacock in the bird park in KL did a perfect spin for me. Maybe it
was shooting a pano in its head...
A cartop along a lake in KL...
The Indian community in Malaysia holds a huge festival at Baru Caves
called Thaipusam. If you look to the left of the huge gold statue,
there is a staircase going up to the caves with massive crowds of
people. There is a massive parade of human floats, some with spikes
piercing their skin and supporting objects. When you approach a float ,
groups of people will hold hands around the float to protect the person
in the centre..
This shot is from the Base on that
This is a Pilgrim's walk. I'm
just travelling towards the statue/stairs and I find myself in the main
parade. Suddenly there are ropes on either side of me and a crowd of
people watching along the sides. This continues til I find an escape
route. Thick crowds of peopl with a huge white guy in their mids
wearing a helmet that makes him look like an alien..
Temple in Penang...One of my favorite shots...The tourist
lady at the beginning is like an add for tourism malaysia..the lanterns
folding back look great on the ladybug.

really this shot is
just a funny outake. I'm shooting some monkeys I came
across in a park in Kuala Lumpur.
It's a dangerous game, I found when I backed off 5 metres or so
they would walk right up to the ladybug and I'd get these awesome shots
of the monkeys staring right into the lenses...
This is the 3rd try, the first I was too close to the camera and no
monkeys came around. The second was better. On try 3 you can see that
things were starting to spiral out of control.. It opens with a
troublemaker biting on the fibre optic wire that leads between the head
and compressor. I manage to scare him back by getting big, but then he
drags the compressor and some wires til I scare him again. Then if you
pan to follow him, you'll see him walk right up to the lens, look in,
and knock the tripod over!
Luckily it was at it's lowest, like less than half a metre up,
and it was in a forest of soft leaves. .. Also the LB has a square base
so the lenses are protected if it falls...All was ok, the shot even
