Rempitoes ...

I went back to Kedah the last weekend. There's no definite reason for that, only to meet up with my parents and friends and also some of my relatives. Wasn't quite a planned journey though quite a number of other friends which are still studying, already back in Alor Star. I've read about the Kedah's new MB was making a statement in The Star sometime ago about battling the social illness (is it an illness, really?) on this group of youngters who've been dubbed as "Mat Rempit" .. and so .. I went to see what's what ... The location - Lebuhraya Darul Aman, the time - 0300 to 0530 .. talking so much about photojournalism, huh?

Mat rempit is a colloquial term for daredevils and illegal motor-cycle racers.

Some are suggesting that mat rempits are actually celebrating their young lives by doing just that. Others just prolong with the idea of the whole scenario of being a social ilness. I would call it .. variations

Panning in the dark is kinda tricky. It's hard to compose the subject well if the inverted environment is much brighter than the subject itself. However, the result would be light trails to whatever movement your camera goes. It will continue to draw your canvas until the shutter is closed.
