The City: Always growing, ever-changing

The KL Twin Towers in the background.
The KL Twin Towers in the background.

A drive into the city.
As familiar, yet changed.
Something new springs up.
It wasn’t there last week.

Hands free, feeling bored.
I dig out my hand-phone.
What will catch my sight?
Almost everything I see.

I focus, I click the shots.
Anything and everything.
Snap here, snap there.
The city I know, yet new.

The camera brings focus.
A different angle of take.
New angles I see, snap.
Buildings captured, print.

A bit too slow: Can you see a little of the tail-end of the monorail train?

What are the odds I'd be lucky to spot a train heading north let alone take a decent photo shoot.

Highway to Nowhere: This highway was supposed to lead to Mont Kiara but it didn’t happen.

  1. Nice poem and photos. The new architecture is so space-age looking. I like the really old buildings and the really new ones. Somehow, something blocky happened in between – Imagination on vacation. Thanks for taking me on the ride.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the ride. I live 20 minutes from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. It’s a hub of activities, a city that almost never sleeps.
