this one's taken in a small shop selling meat and vegetables in a small village in Wangsa Maju. i needed to use the toilet so i went all the way back, where the butcher's table was located..it was eery and scary, i took a quick snapshot and left:)
i kind of like the way it turn out, a bit dreamy and dim. this is the typical weighing scale they use to weigh meat. i am worried about the hygiene though, it seemed like it was never cleaned.

i like this. i like the darkness and i think you've captured the ambience very well. i would prefer less of a gaussian blur effect though: it looks too processed for me. nice shot though.

I really like these curios that your finding in these old shop houses, and what a surprise to find this kind of thing even in KL, I must look out next time (in three weeks). I agree with Lisan about the PP, but I think the coompo here is good enough to overlook it.

Nice shot... I really like the colors, light and... the ambiance !!

Very interesting view... and, ok, the PP is important but gives the interpretation you'd like to tell us!

Beautiful still life. Excellent colours, little mysterious or maybe I can better say old fashioned colours. Very nice moody picture.

Hi Eleen, this is great... it seams a water paiting or something like that. I like the rusty look of the photo, perfectly blurred.

in all your album i can appreciate your costant effort to be never banal! I like in particular this shot, so well explained in your note, for the simple beauty of the subject.
Nice light, soft and with a touch of old and 'very used'.
I like it a lot, very well done!
Don't permit to the 'standard' opinions to change your style of 'photographic eye", you can have talent!

i remember my mom has one like this (years when i was younger) because she used to sell rice and other stuff! this might fetch a good sum now at sotheby's!!....:-)
yes, the dreamy and dim effects take the awes!! good one!
cheers to you from LA.
