The Kuala Lumper tower stands 420mmeters high. At one time it was 7th highest building in the world, but now it’s been eclipsed by so many it isn’t even in the top twenty.
The view from the top was pretty amazing. I can’t help wondering where this desire to create bigger and taller will end, and I feel for the builders. I like heights, do you? Is there a point beyond which you wouldn’t want to go?
My photo is for Paula’s Thursday Special, Pick a word, one or all of five, mine is ‘Lofty’.
Taken from an even higher place, the Kuala Lumpur Tower.
AS this was ten years ago, I expect that a few more high roof tops have been added since. Here’s Becky’s Bug Hotel, she’d be delighted if you joined in.
I stood watching this scene for five minutes, wondering if I could still limbo, did I dare to have a go?
Did those faces in the crowd persuade me?
Paula at Lost in Translation has chosen ‘Descent’ for her Thursday special theme this week. Try as I might, I can’t think of anything unusual, but this would be a steep descent should you wish to abseil. Let me know if you decide to give it a go!

This month Jude wants to see macros or close ups of anything you’d find in the garden, for her monthly Garden Challenge. I can’t remember what was going on here, if this is one bug or two, so if you have any ideas, please let me know. I’m hoping that Sonel may have the answer, some kind of mantis perhaps?
This image is from the Bird park in the 20 acre KL lake gardens, which reputedly has one of the largest free flight walk in aviarys in the world.
If I danced whenever I want to, many more people would know I’m even crazier than they thought. Just a few days ago I was lamenting my inability to sing or play a musical instrument, she said ‘I bet you can dance Gilly’. She was right, I love dance in all it’s forms, but the very best kind is spontaneous.
when you’re moved by the beat
right there on the street
come on feel the heat
now get up on your feet
and dance with a perfect stranger
Jude is running a monthly bench challenge and for March the topic is wooden benches. I found this one a few years ago at a cultural centre in Kuala Lumpur and it’s always stayed in my mind. It wasn’t particularly comfortable but it was very tactile!
Perhaps you have a wooden bench to share? If you’d like to join in visit Jude at
Michelle at The Daily Post says,
‘In a nutshell, a three-picture story is a way to help you think about storytelling with images. To create a three-picture story, gather:
- An establishing shot: a broad photo of your subject.
- A relationship: two elements interacting with one another.
- A detail: a close-up of one part of your subject.’
It took me a while but I think I’ve got it right, what do you think?
So this is my broad shot, my subject is there 420 metres high, but furthest away.
Here, two elements are interacting as I took this shot from the top of my first distant subject.
This is the close up of my subject, the Kuala Lumpur Tower and it shows the 335 metre high 360 degree pod that I had been inside!
Maybe you will join the challenge, http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/02/21/weekly-photo-challenge-threes/
Ailsa wants to see our slant on tilted this week. Well virtually all the horizons are tilted in my photos because I’m hopeless! I wasn’t to blame for these wonky images though.
A tilted frame in the Kuala Lumpur Tower but I think the buildings are straight.
Tilted beams on the waterfront at Kota Kinabalu.
Fairy chimneys tilted by nature in Cappadochia.
