A King’s View of Citrawarna; Malaysia

Citrawarna, the annual event held in Kuala Lumpur, is one of the largest festivals in Malaysia and showcases the talents of 4500 dancers representing each of Malaysia’s 13 provinces. I had been sitting the king’s booth, a large seating area reserved for the King, Queen and a number of governors and dignitaries. I hid behind a large potted plant taking photos until I was discovered and removed to the neighboring media booth. Sadly, I only came home with a dozen or so good photos from the event. It was during a time before the really high digital ISOs (about five years ago) and I had also filled the one 1GB storage card I had brought with me. This meant, every photo I took meant another had to be first deleted. I have learned a lot since then.

Note the bit of shadowy plant in the lower right-hand corner of the shot, which marked my hiding place.
