A lotus flower from my neighbour’s garden.
A lake in Batu Metropolitan Park, near Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur. Several brides and grooms were there to take their wedding photos. (roll eyes) Some even went into the bushes/small jungle nearby to take their wedding photos. Imagine wearing suits, gowns, veils and all that make-up on a hot, hot afternoon and posing there for hours. (roll bigger eyes)
The photo above has a funny two tone colour because the evening sun was shining from my back. I couldn’t get down to the lake side like those brides in their heels because the less steep side was too sunny and not suitable for photographs (the brides were there in the afternoon, I took the photo in the evening, I was there at noon and evening). I don’t want to risk rolling into the muddy lake for the sake of a lotus flower photo!
Another shot of the lotus from my neighbour’s garden. I ‘stole’ this shot when the family was away during Deepavali.
