October sunrise @Bukit Tabur

- first one to climb up … far too many cobwebs :)
- the flag markers have been (purposely?) removed … replaced with numbers painted on the rocks which is not easily noticed in the dark. I only saw 4,6 and 7 … must have gone ‘sesat’ for a while b4 going on the right path. This 'killer’ hike has become more dangerous

From My affair with Betty
Malaysia Thaipusam 2012 at Batu Caves: A photo essay

stayed close to a family of devotees for abt an hour from sunrise. There were a lot of things that I didn’t understand about the rituals and protocols, and the family was kind enough to give me pointers, when/what to shoot and not to do. Being polite, respectful and having conversations with your _subjects_ is a good thing … in this case, the reward was access to certain rituals that allowed me to document/shoot comfortably. Nice!
