050 | CFTM Bonsai

This is another photo from the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion in George Town.  A very tastefully positioned tree (not actually a Bonsai, but it sounded cool).

022 | Off The Track, Lebuh Chulia, George Town

There were, not surprising, a wealth tiny nooks and alleys off the streets of George Town.  None of them looked especially pleasant up close, but from far enough away many of them cut a nice series of shapes.

016 | Viking Sketch, George Town

This rates as the second most incongruous piece of graffiti I’ve ever seen, after a lurid green stencil of an alien that adorns a water tank at a highway toilet rest-stop somewhere between Nowehere, Western NSW and a town with altogether to many occurrences of  “urra”, “irra”, “arra”, and the like, in it’s name..

Eight-point Mosaic, Lebuh Pitt, George Town

Given that most of us spend a lot of time looking down (apparently) it’s nice that there are interesting paving compositions around the place to entertain us.

Richshaws Outside the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, George Town

A (not actually particularly) recent holiday to Malaysia presented a wealth of photo-ops.  This mansion, owned by ‘the Rockefeller of the East’, was amazingly restored and appointed.  The rickshaws were a great example of when you find a scene that is already a photo, just waiting for a frame.
