    Had a short walk this morning around Petaling Street in Kl. It's a street photographers paradise with so much life all around. Also its an amazing mix of cultures and religions.

    I grabbed a few shots with my new E-P3 and 45mm f1.8. I was loving the freedom of shooting M43 - just one small camera and excellent fast fixed focal length lens - so refreshing compared to lugging around my heavy Nikon kit.

    I really like this focal length for my style of street shooting. I like to keep my distance and often shoot from the other side of the street. Occasionally it was a bit long but on the whole it was perfect.

    Below are a few shots I took in the temples around Petaling Street. I could have spent hours down there but as usual I was having to taxi my children around town and I only had a couple of hours between pick ups.

    great shots, rich!
    your timing is far better than mine; you've got entertainment.

    did you try out the hawker food at madras lane? a couple of
    the stalls have been there for as long as can remember.
     
  3. Nice work, those shots with the springs are really cool!
