KB Worldwide Photowalk - Gembo's view

I am possibly the last member to update their blog with the KB Photowalk. Held recently in Kuala Belait Town on 18 July, there were 50 of us photo enthusiast, ranging from the teens to the 60's getting together to walk around town, capturing the sights and beauties of the town in which I was born and raised 35 years ago.

I was armed with my Canon 450D DSLR with the 28-135mm lens, which was slightly restrictive as I could not capture the wide angle shops. Well, one for the wish list.

No, I didn't manage to get any shots of the arches, as 1) it would look better at night and 2)the route I took have not arches at all heheh.

Enjoy the shots below. These are my picks, although I have to submit 2 best pics for to be uploaded to the Worldwide Photowalk website. For more pics, go to my facebook album.

I will definitely join the next photowalk, and hopefully to be better armed with wider/faser lens.... not so much on the speed, more on the 'bokeh' - i just love what Anakbrunei's 5DII and lens combination could do.

We started here - Tugu Cendera Kenangan, built in 1996 to commemorate His Majesty's the Sultan 50th birthday

Group Photo grabbed from Anakbrunei. Thanks bro.

A new playground in the making

My lame attempt at macro. Go to Kantalensa for superb macro shots

Panning Shots attempt

The 60's - from right - Haji Othman Paun and Haji Hasan Bakar

Jalan Pretty at 8.15 am.... still deserted

One of the contributors to our nation cleanliness

Oh yes, call her heheh

This is one location for footie enthusiasts to watch their favourite team, they've got big screen put up during the game night. Nice view of the river too (depends on the tide though)

So calm

KB Clock tower and HSBC building.... we walked in the MORNING

Don't believe me? see this!

KB original twin towers... it has been there since I was a kid... maybe 6 years old.

Caught my attention, wonder why

This is Saeed, my favourite tailor for Baju Cara Melayu. Have been with him for nearly 10 years now. He now ventures into ladies garment, and employed two filipinos

Ultraman welcomes you

Dosai anyone?

The KB clocktower and the KB Taxi stand - there is only 3 taxi's I remember parked there at any one time, but got space for 24.... go figure

Another angle, the clock tower and Kuala Belait Bus Terminal

Odd combination?

The top floor food court at the fish market



Kampong Melayu Asli, this is where I spent my first 16 years of my life
