This photograph has not been pirated!

But I can’t vouch for the pirated clothes, handbags, books, DVDs and CDs that are sold on Petaling Street (Malay: Jalan Petaling) in the heart of Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The area went through a major renovation in 2003 and the entire street was covered with a green roof and as a result the locals started to call it the “Green Dragon.” The pedestrian-only thoroughfare is full of vendor kiosks, food stalls and restaurants. It’s a great place to sharpen your bargaining skills if your courage allows it.

I just love this splash of yellow this moving cab provided along with adding depth to my composition.

Now don’t be a pirate and pirate my photograph without my express consent. If you would like to use this or any of my other photographs for your blog, advertising campaign, magazine print, book cover or website please get in touch with me and we can discuss terms.

Just be prepared to bargain!

Check back for more of my Malaysian adventures!

Happy Travels!
