The man with his wonderful smile, runs a bicycle repair shop in Kampar Old Town. The smile on his face is a pleasant welcome for customers and is the essence of this picture. This picture was taken when he was having a rest after having finished servicing his client. The cement floor shows the sustained damage from the dropping of tools over a long period of time. The tools on the floor and the wooden background adds a very vintage feel to this picture. I have personally not been that keen to capture black and white pictures. However having taken a few, I started to appreciated the difference in the way black and white pictures are able to communicate a message.
"Kampar Old Town Collections" is a compilation of pictures taken through my lens on some of my favourite subjects in this wonderful town. I cherish many fond memories and have a deep feeling for the people and cultures. It has opened up my mind, given me fresh exposure, extended my circle of friends and provided exciting learning experiences. I have another few more weeks here, before I move back to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
