Sultan Abdul Samad Building

Sultan Abdul Samad Building is one of the landmarks built by British, located in Kuala Lumpur.

1/8, f/4, 18mm
Right in front of it, there's a historical field where independence was announced, known as Merdeka Square.

No, I'm not going to talk about Merdeka Square, but you see there's a TV station truck back there? (RTM). They will be filming an event there, I believe it is Hari Pahlawan on 31st of July 2012.

The colors of the lights change every some seconds. So, it was pretty hard to snap one with the best colors.

This building was built in 1894, given its name taken from the Sultan of Selangor that time.

I came at night to visit this place mainly because I was planning to do light trails with this building as the background. Unfortunately, I didn't know the road was being closed due to the event that will be held here. The whole road was empty, just with some people walking freely to take pictures.

Also, I would walk much further, up to a beautiful fountain at the end of the road, but I was having too much headache. So, I ended up browsing closer areas quickly.

There was another old building next to it, with a very creepy corridor just like the ones in scary movies. Haha. This reminds me of my old Convent school.

But since it was rare for anyone to find a free parking spot available there, and for people like us that didn't want to waste RM25 for parking again another time, I took the possible chances to try out taking light trail pictures on our way back to the car.

30 sec, f/20, 26mm
The traffic wasn't good enough for light trail anyway. I wonder where were people that time. But I was happy to finally make use of the tripod that we bought. We just have to make sure not to place the tripod nearby moving objects, especially like a train in the picture up there since the ground will be shaking anyway and the pictures will come out blurry.
