Tea plantations near Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia
I took a break from Saigon and flew for a couple of days to Malaysia. I spent one day in Kuala Lumpur and almost the rest of my stay in the Cameron Highlands which are located about 200 km north of KL. In 7 days I hiked about 3 days in order to set my mind free again and hanged out with a local painter I met. And I learned another step of photography. As he showed me a book about photojournalism again I had the click effect. The better photojournalism is the more the photographer seems to be invisible in the scene. Not existing. And the imagination of being invisible to take good shots is not a thought I like to have as a friend. In order to see the photographers ability of handle with people and catch their emotions he needs to be close to people, talk to them, get into their life. Well, one step further in terms of finding the right way of photography for me. Thats it so far. I keep on thinking. Promise.
P.S. I do have so much more pictures I like of Malaysia and Vietnam. But however I don’t feel like sharing those pictures anymore. It feels to distracting to put all these pictures online. Doesn’t make sense anymore. One day, when I do have a new website I will upload some new pictures.
