Long wait for a short shoot   Leave a comment


Long wait for a short shoot A wait of of nearly 2 hours foe a 15-minutes’ photo-shoot. Just like we described “Meetings” which we spent hours at meeting to get “minutes”. The world goes round and round as usual. SP Lim
1. The wait started at the time stated on the photographs …

2. The wait continues after I took the best position and angle – with Komtar as the background and the evening sky.

3. The sky darkens with the approaching darkness of the late evening light …

4. The “Blue Hour” approached with the darkening sky …

5. Still waiting patiently for the first performance which was scheduled for 7.00 pm and other at 9.00 pm.

6. The Komtar had disappeared in the darkness and was not lighted up … as performance started off.

7. The performance ended after slightly more than 10 minutes … what a disappoinment! Waiting 2 hours to capture less than 10 minutes of action of the Lion Dance Performance while missing out on the Drums Performance and Chingay at the other end of the road! Not again in my life …

8. A better deal is the photo-shoot of the Chingay – huge triangular flag performance and the Dragon Dance Performance. Extremely bad organization and timing indeed!
