Wesak Day
By TV Smith
8th May 2004

This week, TV SMITH shares some of his recent Wesak Day pictures and offers some shooting tips for the occasion...

For shutterbugs, Wesak Day offered irresistible photographic opportunities. Since the celebrations involved a night time street procession, I checked out the route a day earlier. I brought along a small tripod for slow shutter speed use, as many of the photogenic moments were in the dim temple interiors or outside after dark.

I also wore a pair of easily removable sandals as footwear is not allowed in various parts of the holy grounds. One final tip: respect the worshippers by not firing your camera indiscriminately or behaving nosily inside the temples.

All pics were taken around the Buddhist temples in Brickfields and Jalan Gasing. Olympus C8080 digital camera courtesy of Olympus (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

Update: Map with directions, pic and info of the Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields. Go there.
