Cleaning out and reorganizing a few drives. Shot on Fuji Velvia 100 in 2007. No camera data but I'm assuming somewhere around 1/10th at f11, ISO100. Canon 20mm f2.8 on my trusty T-90.
Women enter Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to perform a parkrama or circumnambulation of the temple deity. We attended this pooja in 2006 and 2007 in KL. Incredible to watch 1000 (?) women all dressed in red walking from Bangsar to Chinatown at dawn. In 2007 I was able to gain access to an upper balcony at the temple where this shot was taken. The celebrants entered the temple in groups. I cantilevered myself and tripod over the edge and waited for the women to get the go ahead to enter the portion of the temple where the deities are housed. I'd envisioned this shot after attending the event in 2006 and seeing the upper balcony which was closed to visitors. Returning in 2007 the organizers remembered me and helped me gain access to the balcony. An important lesson in returning to a scene and working it from another angle.
