A few random photos around Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Towers

After being on the road for the last couple of weeks I am finally starting to catch up on a little editing and processing of photos - including a little film processing.  The following photos are just a few random ones I found in my collection that captures more of life in and around Kuala Lumpur.  They are not what I would classify as my best photos, but then the aim of this blog is not to only depict my very best work but rather a collection of photos from a particular moment in time.
