Does this snake make me look fat?

I am back in Malaysia after a long series of flights. I have determined that I think my frequent flier membership card should change its logo to Sisyphus pushing a boulder up a hill. I do collect a lot of miles, but, ironically, when I do actually have time off, the last thing I want to do is fly. So I am trying to figure out a way to trade in my frequent flier miles for something that I can actually use – like sleep.

Does this snake make me look fat?

I took that shot above at the Batu Caves just north of Kuala Lumpur. Below is another picture that I took nearby, with the dark black of the cave in the background.

Storm Hitting Kuala Lumpur

Believe it or not these two shots were taken on the same day within just a few hours. A series of violent storms came through Kuala Lumpur, allowing a few surreal shots of the city. It went from very dark and cloud to torrential downpour to beautiful sunset. It reminded me of the storms on the plains of Texas.

Kuala Lumpur is a very interesting city and is quite unique in Asia. I’d love to get up on top of those Petronas Towers there to take some shots, but I look like a suspicious white guy with my huge backpack. They tell me all white people look alike. …and smell like wet puppies.

The Mosque and the Towers

Someone made a comment that this looks like the Klingon capital… from some alien sci-fi show that I have never heard of.

The first is a city shot at sunset just after a storm. The second is from the island archipelago of Langkawi.

Kuala Lumpur from the Air in HDR

I think the city has a very unique skyline with green the mountains of Malaysia in the background. This was shot on one of the few sunny days there when the wind changed from the Indonesian firestorms.

Lord Murugan

I got in trouble from a Flickr fan for saying that he sounded like one of the bad wizards from Harry Potter, but here he is, standing 140 feet tall in the jungles of Malaysia.

Details of the Night

These shots are normally really hard to grab at night, but this HDR turned out nice. Chaotic, but detailed and nice.

Sites of Malaysia

I’m sure I could just post pictures from around Malaysia and there would be plenty of variety. Here are three I recently uploaded. The first is the city, obviously, of Kuala Lumpur. The second is a Vietnamese restaurant in a cool underground area. The third is a statue I found in Malaka.

Kuala Lumpur from KL Tower

This is a picture of the observation lounge itself, which I thought came out interesting.
