What can you do on a weekend in Kuala Lumpur? I bet most lomographers would bring their arsenal of photography goods to shoot around Kuala Lumpur, but isn't that too common already? Have you ever tried taking photos at the wet market? This article is for those who love street photography.:)
Pasar Borong Selayang (Selayang Wet Market) is located besides Jalan Ipoh. What’s so special about this market is that it is open 24 hours. During the day, people can buy vegetables, fruits, and fishes at very affordable prices. Shoppers can get such items at wholesale prices.
It’s one of the largest wet markets in Kuala Lumpur so for sure there will be a lot of activities happening around here. My friends and I took the opportunity to shoot some street shots to record the wondrous moments around here, so we went there during the day and night.
At night, they were restocking all the items and got ready for the next day. Here are some shots at Pasar Borong Selayang:
Some people love being photographed while some don’t. I advise you to ask for their permission first if you’d like to take their photo.
During the day, there are a lot of people who come here to buy for their daily necessities. I love street photography and this place is perfect for me to try it out. Here are some more shots:
Luckily, the fishmongers here are really friendly. One of them let us take portraits of him holding a big fish.
For anyone who’d like to come here, just go to Jalan Ipoh and the Pasar Borong Selayang is at the side of the road. If you’re still unsure about the direction just Google Map it!:)
PS: If you want to take a shot of a random person that you don’t even know, just be nice to them and for sure you’ll get what you want. If they still don’t want to have their picture taken, please respect them. Last but not least, please refer to rule #10, Don’t worry about any rules.
