Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head

I was on my way for an appointment when I was stuck in a massive jam from Jalan Kuching to Loke Yew. I was calm at first. It has been awhile since I last got stuck in a traffic jam. I have been chauffeured to work everyday since I started my blissful job, 5 minutes away from my home, three years ago. Hehe! I listened to the radio, enjoying myself.. till the songs got a bit boring. I switched the radio off and on my mobile phone and listened to Adam Lambert’s tracks from American Idol.. I know I am hopeless.. LOL!

20 minutes later I got really restless and started to curse. BIG TIME.

Luckily I had my camera with me. Then I thought of Visithra who managed to capture seriously great shots during traffic jams on rainy days… so I whipped out the camera and tried it myself…

One cell with many, many nuclei

Macrophages preying on pink virus

Contemplating to overtake…

Blissfully stuck in the rain

While I was taking these pics, the song from BJ Thomas, “Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head” kept repeating over and over again in my mind.

Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin’ seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’

Well… not very nice photos but at least I think this is quite a good first attempt. *Perasan LOL!* Never been any happier being stuck in the jam, especially in the rain.

Thanks, Visithra for the inspiration.

    the one with the pink virus seems cool, very “mangaish” (japanese manga).

    that day i went to steve mccurry’s talk (the guy who shot the afghan girl on National Geog) and he confessed that he only uses one lense for 99% of his shots, altho he carries a couple of others around. so, there u go!

    Not bad. I think the pixs kinda look very retro and somewhat soothing.

    I like the witty caption too. Ehehehe

  5. Gina Says:

    Kleio da Muse: Hey, thanks. :D
