Travel Thursday | Malayan ♥ Canon s95





I just purchased a new camera slightly more then a monthly ago, basically I bought a Canon s95. I contemplated like crazy on which brand, model & price should I invest myself into.


After much researching, debating & comparing, I finally have my set on Canon s95. Sooooo.... few weeks back, Andrea ad me decided to go to Carcosa Sri Negara for English high-tea of which after the fabulous session, I drove to Malayan Railway or now known as Kuala Lumpur Railway Station nearby.

Why I choose this building and pic is because of the Neo-Moorish/Mughal/Indo-Saracenic/Neo-Saracenic architecture style (a mouthful. I know!), it begin serving the public in 1 August, 1910 (OLD!). Now, we have moved the train station to KL Sentral located nearby thus this magnificent building is not being used anymore.

Do you have any interesting architecture/building in your country?

More pics HERE.



P/S : Thank you Raymond Yap for you advice.

Hello there! Thanks for visiting my Barcelona blog! You were asking about luminance. I downloaded it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/qtpfsgui/
Be aware that you will need another program to finish the pictures, I am using Picassa or Paint.net, or gimp. It's free, and it's much easier to use than most other HDR programs. Good luck!

What a shame that such a great building is no longer in use.
Some of Bristol, UK railway station (the original terminus) has been converted into a museum, nursery and a covered station car park.
Where I live (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) next to the river Tyne, old flour mills and grain stores have been converted into a contemporary art gallery, hotels and apartments.
Having said all that, none of are as nice as the building that you showed here....time to recycle the building into another use and preserve it i think.

GaneshPrasad,

J_on_tour@jayzspaze,

cant agree with you more, they should preserve these magnificent building. normally what happen here in malaysia is that, the government only realise it when its too late to preserve. some they even tore down as they said not "old" enough t be gazetted. i always think if they hold on another 10 yrs more, it should "old and ripe" by then ;)

Gracie said...
