Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 30, 2010
Whenever I go back to my hometown in Jerteh, a small town in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia I will never forget to capture whatever that catches my fancy especially a scene that I can no longer find in the city where I now live. I was attracted to this scene of two siblings standing at the window of a typical wooden village house. They looked very shy yet not intimidated by my camera lens aimed at them. I clicked the shutter when I could get eye contact from both of them. They were actually looking outside from the window to watch people slaughtering animal for the Eid Ul-Adha festival and I was glad I managed to divert their attention to my lens for a few seconds.
