My Old Town (Miri 1999~2000) Updated

I was around Miri during 1999 to 2000. When bored, I brought my first digital camera, an Olympus C-400L, to snap around the town.
The image quality is rather bad compare to todays standard, but that was then… :lol:

That’s all that I have~

Nice photographs. Look forward to more! But can you sort of resize it if it’s too wide?

Thanks Ian, now using thumbnail instead :slight_smile:

Thumbnails are better! Thumbs up

Btw, did you do the photo stitching yourself?

nice shot…i really love all the photo…especially the Grand Old Lady…standing alone on top of the hill, looking into miri town and the symbol of growth of miri town…but now, i think the museum had somehow over shadow the historical value of the structure…for me, it lose the sense of history as it was surrounded by the modern structure around it…

You can get to the top of that cliff in Taman Selera? How? That is so cool!

thanks key… the picture refresh my memory… thanks…

thank u very much for sharing key,pls continue post more pics ya :smiley:

thanks my4to, I still have a lot of old photos & negatives, but just don’t have time to scan & retouch them. Well, sooner or later, I will :lol:
