Pasar Karat – Used Item

I see what happens when one gets very attached to material things. That’s just not what my life is

As a morning person, I generally do my street shoot in the morning. This is very beneficial because the golden hour is generally about 8am. Of course this is only relevant if the day is sunny. The weather has been very cloudy.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the sunrise is actually quite late, thus when I go out at 7am – I need to find places where there are additional lighting. In the photo above which shows a person selling used electrical items, he has an electric lantern to light up his shop. Hence you can see a bit of dramatic lighting.

The map above shows the location of Pasar Karat.

Pasar Karat – Seller

I have been eating soupy stuff at home because I felt like it! The problem is I do not have any soup bowl to use. The last bowl that I have was broken when I tried to heat up a soup a few years ago (yes!). The reason was that the bowl had metal strip which I thought was just a pain. From that point onwards, I told myself that I should not be buying expensive bowls. The bowl did cost me quite a bit.

Therefore, that morning I decided to head to Chinatown to buy a new bowl. I believe it should be quite cheap in comparison the malls. While I am at it, I brought my camera along. Hoping to shoot a few photos. One thing led to another, I ended up spending few hours shooting!

The photos above show one of Pasar Karat seller. The time was 7.15am – so it was pretty early and surprisingly, the place was very busy. Pasar Karat means rusty market. True to its name, most of the items are used.

Saloma Bridge

Saloma Bridge is a new pedestrian bridge that links Kampung Baru to KLCC. To be honest – I don’t know what this is required, but I guess it allows the Kampung Baru folks to be connected to KLCC area, giving a cheaper alternative to the workers in KLCC area to stay.

My typical street shoot morning!

The following video shows my typical street shoot morning. I found this video in my storage. Perhaps its something that I have not posted, probably I have. I also cannot remember. This was taken approximately 1.5 years ago – back in June 2018.

Out of the shoot, here is the result of the photo!

It is actually quite a shit photo. To be honest, quite a lot of processing was done on this. From the before and after below, you can see the difference!

It shows how good is the dynamic range of Leica M10. Seriously – very impressed.
