Rain can’t stop me
Malaysia was given the honour of receiving the Olympic Torch in conjunction of the coming Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing. It poured and poured and poured with rain and I was lucky to have gotten away with some shots. Both the Canon 1D series and the EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens is weather sealed but its tough to take pictures with raindrops on the lens.
Still. Lots of fun. I was soaked right through to the everything.
As a result of the protests and demonstrations so far, you can feel the security presence there. 1000 police officers were stationed along the route all the way between the main venues. These images were taken in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park.
Photographers note: The images have been digitally enhanced.
