Rewind to 8th July 2007, when I got on a plane with good ol’ buddy/aspiring pilot JFK!
I brought out the Canon Powershot A520 with Hoya R72 infrared-pass filter for the bright sun.
I also brought out my beloved Minolta 70-210mm F4.0 beercan lens for this…
…and the Vivitar Series 1 28-105mm F2.8-3.8 lens with a Tamron 1.4x teleconverter.
The object of aerial transportation – a Cessna!
Meanwhile, I spied a private flight. This was in the old Subang airport, now known as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.
Nope, no snakes on this plane.
Because the plane was tiny and you could not hear your voice or anybody else’s, you’d need to wear headphones with a mike. Also, you’d need to speak with the mike touching your lips (as it picks up vibration, not sound.)
We have liftoff! Shah Alam Stadium.
Shah Alam Mosque.
Blue skie… I mean, seas.
Going ashore for business. We hovered around Port Klang and went past a nearby island for a bit.
The original plan was to go to PJ, around The Curve, to check it out; however, weather conditions did not permit this.
Oh, and of course I brought my Peleng 8mm F3.5 circular fisheye. Pardon the inconsistent colors; the Peleng has an inconsistent coating which shows in certain conditions. Plus the glass might’ve been smudgy.
