A 365 Days Project In The Making

Posted by shloke 16 December 2009
I started documenting the beauty of Kuala Lumpur (KL) and Putrajaya since November last year. As of December 2009, I've explored 30 places of interest in KL and 5 places in Putrajaya.

Kuala Lumpur, the capital city, IS Malaysia, and probably the greatest city in the world. There is so much to see here, so many places to visit, so many things to do. During my one year journey, I've discovered a melting pot of of different cultures with great food, amazing people and superb entertainment. No city invites the heart to come to life as KL does. Arrival in KL is an experience in living.

"What about Putrajaya?" you might ask. Well, I fall in LOVE with Putrajaya when I first I visited the place in October 2009. So far, I had made three trips back to Putrajaya. The majestic buildings blended perfectly with the green parks and garden. A well executed intelligent city that stands tall among the great.

During the last several weekends, I've managed to sort out all my photos according to theme and location. Believe it or not?! I've captured more than 3 500 pictures of KL and Putrajaya.

These pictures brought back loads of wonderful memories, joy and laughter. I remember the great time I had in KL and Putrajaya - meeting total strangers, chatting with them and sharing common interests.

Today (16th December 2009), it's been exactly one year since I started my solo exploration to discover the two cities. I like to share with you my pictures of KL and Putrajaya. This is a collection of the 35 best pieces from my photo blog, spanning 365 days of work. I captured all these using my Nikon D60 DSLR camera.

This 365 days project is not the end, but only the beginning. I'll continue to discover more hidden gems in these wonderful cities. Thank you and enjoy.

  8. Wow tremendous effort. The harder part is sorting out the pis and deciding which to use. The behind the scene aspects people not aware of.

    I tried not to overkill my camera. Got to replace the internal mechanism soon due to too many shutter release :)

    Organizing pictures is TIME CONSUMING & TIRING :) But, once I published these pictures in my blog post....I'M A HAPPY PERSON :)

    Cheers to all!
