KL Sentral Train Station

The photographs in this entry were taken at the KL Sentral Train Station, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in June 2018.

I was out and about with the camera looking for opportunities to take some pictures. At the time I was living a short distance from the MRT Muzium Negara line, which was opened to the public in 2017.  Subsequently, it was somewhat of a novelty and a new mode of transport to be experienced.

The Station was bright and shiny as new things tend to be. However, at the time the MRT was less popular than the LRT. This was a bonus, as it was a quiet train station with very few people waiting on the platform. Therefore, I felt relatively free to explore the platform with a camera and not disrupt peoples’ activities.

Black and white photos

The two photos included in this blog post were taken from near the top of the escalator. Being elevated gave me a bird’s-eye view of the activities unfolding as people below neared the escalator. From this high vantage point I was able to capture the contrasting geometric patterns made by the morning light, together with the pedestrians’ strong inky black shadows.
