I am passing by our national car plant, Proton in Shah Alam everyday. They are a lot of new cars parked in the empty land next to the highway I travel.
I told myself, 1 day I will take some photos of this place. I did that early this month after I told myself more than a year ago.
It was about 6PM and the sun is still up. Took about 20 shots from different angles.
A week later when I go thru the photos, saw this Auto Repair signboard behind the cars. I didn't notice that workshop until I took these photos.
This photo is heavilly cropped, adjusted color and sharpen.
I need to remind myself to stop once in awhile to enjoy the minor moments I missed from time to time. I am sure all TE members should do the same too.
Thanks for viewing.

It don't looked like a car factory but more like a car repair outlet.
I'm not sure how this car is going to sell, since foreign cars have been putting up a stiff competition to the local car and their prices have been reasonable.
Yes, we needed to stop once in awhile and look around us to enjoy the minor moments.

This is an engaging pattern, Chai, skillfully noticed and captured by your camera. The heavy crop works well, though it might be fun to try an even heavier crop so only the cars are present in the frame. Nice work!

Wich car, they all look alike and you used it graphically with a good angle in contrast to the greenery of the background, well seen Chai and good captured.

Well seen. It is mesmerizing... all those cars parked in lines. I agree with David about the cropping. Just to see the cars. Almost frightening. Anyway, for me! Thank you for sharing and to remind us to "enjoy the minor moments"!

I agree with you about stopping for a while, to shoot something to stop its time. This ratrace we are in don't make us better rats or getting better cheeses. For this photo, you might like to crop it further to only let in the cars without the treeline & building. Better yet, stop by next time and see about getting/working for this composition.

As many cars, lovely in a file, which mark of cars is this? Yes, we needed to stop once in awhile and look around, us to enjoy the minor moments, but everyone think at more!
Very well seen!

Very nice pattern of cars. The signal on the top left contrast with the reality of the brand new cars parking lot. I liked the line of yellow cars on the center, broking a bit the repetitive pattern of dark cars.
Very well done.

amazing catch, it looks like an army of clones, very graphic and stunning picture.

Very well seen, it's a great and funny repetion shot. I like the row of yellow cars in between all the grey ones. You had a nice light here too, well done.

Good catch Chai. Sort of a difficult subject but you did well here. TFS

Interesting results ... it looks like a jungle of cars over here.
I would have liked to make a bit of a tighter crop on top of the photo to emphasize on the automobile jungle even more.
interesting photo ... thanks
regards ... sarju

I like this composition. For me the signboard & trees are added interest in the "daily life" category - so there is more to this shot than just repeating pattern and lines. I would have preferred to see a little more contrast. Regards. Latiff.
PS: So when is your next upload coming up? As I commented before (via Rabani's photo) you last post was half a year ago.
