My City Kuala Lumpur - Part 2

(All photos in this entry are captured using Lumix GF3)

*

We continued walking towards an abandoned preserved facade facing Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman that is turned into a parking space and there are lots of interesting details of graffiti art works on the wall that I captured. A small world full of colours, textures, life, expression, and emotion.

Various colour, texture and material at one of the shophouses in KL.

Plants can easily grow in a country like Malaysia, creating interesting contrast
against the hard and rough surface of the wall.

The life on the non living, yet harmoniously blend together.

And I still admire the art done by graffiti artistes.

Vandalism for some, art to others.

Just next to the preserved facade, we found another 'world' of surprise. Just at the intersection of Jalan Raja Laut and Jalan Parlimen. Greener, busier, neater, with some splashes of man made waterfall. But the the 'capturable' qualities are just as fine as the colourful 'world' we had just experienced. KL is always full of surprise!

Hedging bamboos are planted at the roadside of Jalan Raja Laut

The man-made urban waterfall to soften the 'micro environment'.
What can be seen from here is our pride and joy KL Tower.
But what cannot be seen from here is the colourful wall of graffiti as we have seen above,
 just on the other side of the waterfall wall.
Surprised?
Jalan Parlimen

And from here we crossed the road heading towards Merdeka Square.

Homeless people. In KL, there are many of them.
But don't get them wrong. They  won't bug you.
They don't beg for living.
Instead they work and earn monthly or weekly or daily salary,
but the cost of living in KL is so high they can't even rent a room.

The classic and rustic colour of red bricks against the bright blue sky is breathtaking.

The window - where similarity works.

The building sidelane. Just next to it is Kelang River/Gombak River,
as the building itself was built at the meeting point of those two rivers.

The historical building and the modern buildings at the background.

Heliconia in a planter. And some geometrical motifs at the base of lamp post.

A mini space. Underneath is the river, flowing to the sea.

Landscape elements are a must in shaping character of a city.

After this we crossed the road to another spot in the city. Which will be highlighted in next entry.
