Kampung Hakka Mantin – Part 5

This time, a Methodist church, also on the main road. Photography Tip: Since the floor is not level, I turned on framing guidelines under settings. It allowed me to keep the verticals and horizontals aligned.This saved much time that may be required to fix crooked framing later.

Kampung Hakka Mantin – Part 3

I am attracted to old architecture. Many Catholic churches from the turn of the century incorporate neo-Gothic design with tall spires and ample windows and vents for an airy interior.

Kampung Hakka Mantin – Part 2

Unexpected difficulty was trimming the exposure to control the highlights and judging via the phone screen under bright sun.

Kampung Hakka Mantin – Part 1

Kampung Hakka is located directly opposite the church I first photographed in 2003. And thus began a new, unplanned,documentary series photographed exclusively with the Asus Zenfone. Along the way, I’ll also discuss the merits and challenges of using a phone camera solely for such a task.

The Red Hydrant

Fire hydrants are usually colour-coded so firefighters can tell at a glance the water capacity and pressure available.

Intended as a critical time-saving indicator during a fire, the meaning of the colour codes are not universally standardised though.

The pillar hydrants I see here in Tanjung Malim are mostly red, with a few in yellow.

Behind the hydrant is the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer in Rest House Road. The Catholic church started as a small chapel in 1960 and was rebuilt in 2007.
