Morib Beach

5

I have been to Morib Beach (Pantai Morib in Malay) since I was in a secondary school. That time I did not have any camera and nothing that could help me to capture the memories. Until I fell in love with Lomography, I took this opportunity to go to this beach again together with my dearest family, my lovely Lomo & SLR camera.

I have been to Morib Beach (Pantai Morib in Malay) since I was in a secondary school. That time I did not have any camera and nothing that could help me to capture the memories. Until I fell in love with Lomography, I took this opportunity to go to this beach again together with my dearest family, my lovely Lomo & SLR camera.

Morib beach is located in Simpang Morib, which is about 10 km from Banting town. My mission to this beach were not swimming nor surfing. I can tell you what is the most exciting part in Morib Beach. I could just waited for the sea level flow away from the land.

This is the right timing for every Lomographers, tourists, couples and families to take off their shoes, slippers and flip-flops. The water will decline for about 500m to 1000m away from the land. My companionship and I also left our sandals on the land and started our journey from land to sea. We felt so comfort walking around the spacious wet ground / sand.

Along the way, we had seen so much of the small holes around the ground. What or who dig the holes? The small crabs did that job! There are so much of these small crabs running around here and there. If we move closer, it will just escape and run back into the holes. I called this thing a “mini-military”. It is because it has its own weapons to protect itself. Its’ always walking and digging the holes together in a group. We have tried very hard to catch these crabs. At last, my companionship got one! It clamped on her finger. But no worries, it won’t hurt because it’s too small. So funny! Of course, I’ve never forgot my camera.

Remember to be very careful because the ground is wet. Don’t let your camera falls down onto the wet ground! We just walked further and further. The atmosphere just changed like we are in the dessert now. It is so spacious and just empty. We only can see the sky, ground and a few people. Just imagine if the giant wave are coming to your way (Ha Ha)! Besides that, we had a chance to shoot the beautiful sunset. So, don’t forget to drop by this beach after you’ve landed in Malaysia. Take a Limo or taxi if you’re from the international airport (the nearest landmark). It will just spend you an hour ride to Morib Beach. If you’re from Kuala Lumpur city, then you have to take a bus to Banting from the bus station. Once you’ve reached Banting town, you have to shift a bus to Morib beach.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
