Malaysia and Singapore

Malaysia and Singapore

We recently took our first holiday in years (UK trips don’t count as we are normally shooting weddings!) so we decided to revisit Malaysia as we hadn’t been for a while plus we can never say no to a few days in Singapore! We went with friends who had never been to Malaysia so we started off being tour guides around Kuala Lumpur which is still as chaotic and noisy as ever! We love going around the back streets of Asian cities and finding old traditional buildings especially when they contrast with new modern buildings in the background! This photo is part of the old Railway Station: completed in 1910 it was built to British standards and apparently can withstand 3ft of snow on it’s roof! KL lights up at night, this bank building wouldn’t look out of place in a Batman movie and below, of course, the famous Petronas Towers! On to the relaxing part of the trip with a few days on the island of Langkawi. The island is the land of legends with one particular one being that the island was cursed which held back economic growth but with the birth of the 7th generation from a woman known as Mahsuri the curse was broken, Langkawi was declared a duty free island and has since enjoyed increased tourism. Langkawi means reddish brown eagle in colloquial Malay and arriving by boat at the capital of Kuah you are greeted by a giant eagle! Unfortunately for our few days on the island there was haze from the annual forest burning so there were no clear blue skies. Fortunately it didn’t stop the sun reaching the beach but it did make for some interesting photos of the islands in the bay! We had been looking forward to photographing a jetty on the hotels property but it had been damaged by a stray boat during a severe storm a couple of months ago! On to Singapore! This is one of our favourite places in the world so we never miss an opportunity to visit, catch up with friends and ………..they have the most wonderful shoe shops! Again there is a great mixture of historical buildings contrasting with modern day towers. This is the beautiful Raffles Hotel where one must partake of the famous Singapore Sling! Once home to the GPO, The Fullerton Hotel is surrounded by modern day skyscrapers. The Marina Bay area has recently been redeveloped with the now famous Marina Bay Sands hotel, shops (yes, more shops!), entertainment complexes including a casino and the new Gardens by the Bay capturing the essence of Singapore, the garden city. Every night there is a laser show lighting up the hotel...

Brisbane!

Brisbane!

Our second working adventure took us to beyond Toowoomba and we decided to stay on in Brisbane for a couple of days afterwards. It was great to be back again after a long gap to revisit the city. It’s amazing how it’s changed together with the clean up after the flooding. Brisbane is fortunate to have a complete wheel! We also visited the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to go and cuddle a Koala! A roo with an itch! and finally Kim with...

Canberra!

Canberra!

Whilst we are quiet on the wedding side of the business during the winter months we have been doing some other interesting people photography and graphic work for the corporate sector. Some of this work has involved working in other cities and therefore we have taken the opportunity to stay on for a couple of days and get out and about seeing other parts of the country and to do some travel photography! It’s not often you get to stand on the roof of Parliament! The following are views of Canberra and surrounds from Black Mountain Tower, it was very cold and windy up there! This time another view from the other side of the city from Red Hill Canberra has many trendy styled buildings which are fun to photograph! A couple of views of the lakes in Canberra The War Memorial is a special place to visit and the array of poppies next to the roll of honour is very striking Time to get out into the country to visit a little village called Bungendore and to sample some of the local wines! Some unusual letter...
