IOI City Mall, Putrajaya – Part 20

The zany pedestrian crossing is painted with the fur stripe patterns of a zebra instead. The quirky and zany approach gives hint to or acts as a prelude to the creative and unconventional management of the mall inside.

The suits (management) will normally panic if such an idea is suggested. Kudos to whoever who approved and allowed the implementation. The crossing is at the basement car park, just outside the entrance with 7-Eleven and Tony Roma’s.

There are a few remaining pics which I may post outside the series.

Hope you enjoyed the series as much as I enjoyed capturing the images.

IOI City Mall, Putrajaya – Part 19

Wonder Of Wondermilk.

Wondermilk The Cupcake shop at IOI City Mall is enchanting even for adults. The corner shop caught my eye as it looked surreal and magical in design. it is a glass and wood encased, retro looking shop with an old fashioned wooden door.

I shot through the glass and let the camera’s auto focus fluctuate, clicking when it was nicely soft. That added to the enchanting, magical atmosphere created by the rows of hanging lights inside. Some unexpected things provide the photographer with the most fun.

IOI City Mall, Putrajaya – Part 16

It may not be the best place to shoot from as some skaters tend to come near to grab the rail. If you are unlucky, one of those hand-holding couples will block most of your view.

If you attained a fast enough shutter speed, you can capture any unexpected subject. Don’t forget that relative speed is exaggerated when a subject is too close and thereby is harder to freeze or to capture without motion blur.

Skaters do slow down though when they consciously aim for the rails. Speaking of freeze, her meager attire bears testimony to my previous observation that so-called ice skating rinks nowadays are no longer the freezing chambers they used to be.

I clicked before the camera obtained proper focus.

Photography Tip: Many cameras have a fail safe mechanism to prevent shutter click before AF is locked. You may need to go into options > settings to bypass the release setting or switch to manual focus.

A choco strawberry cake by Japanese patisserie Komugi. I can’t afford it but, for me, the satisfaction was working on removing the strong yellowish cast created by the display lighting.
