So after our trip to Sepetang Charcoal Factory we had some totally awesome Mee Udang Banjir then headed onto Penang.
We took a rest for a while and had a BBQ in the evening to celebrate Shutter Asia‘s 2nd anniversary.
Next morning it was up bright and early for a breakfast of Roti Canai at Transfer Road (superb and cheap!).
After that it was off to the Penang Heritage Trail, it was a beautiful sunny day.
The first stop was Masjid Kapitan Keling (Kapitan Keling Mosque).
It’s a beautifully simplistic structure with a very simple white and gold theme.
Then just across the road is Yap Kongsi.
After that we walked further down to Cheah Kongsi, the light was a bit harsh by then and the temple was backlit.
So I took a picture of this giant josstick instead.
I love the feeling of the heritage trail, the buildings are so old and have so much character. Just like this Swatow Lodging House.
We found these cute miniature figures in the back of the temple, a testament to the close focusing ability of the Tamron as this figure is only 2-3cm tall.
We took some group shots on the way out using the traffic mirror.
We saw some cute dogs too on the way to have a drink before heading on down to the Quay to check out one of the jetties.
More on that later anyway!
Looking forward for Jewish Cemetery pics. 🙂
nice pictures.. need to take those sometimes also .
did you eat the dogs?
that pic of swatow lodging house is dope!
It is very nice outing. Too bad I miss it because of a wedding job in KL.
I know nut squat about photography, but that pic of the lodging house is my favorite.
The dogs are so cute 😉
what tamron lens did you use for the close-up?
Myhorng: Yah the heritage trail is interesting.
KY: What’s with you and eating dogs? You’re obsessed la!
Yunus Izam: Thanks 🙂
Jonathan: Ah nvm, maybe next time.
Z: There’s nothing to know, you either like a picture or you don’t. Same as a painting, you don’t need to understand the ‘rules’. It’s art!
ahlost: Yah damn active too.
adrian: My normal walkabout lens, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8.
Hmmmm…..methinks you’re not visiting to the cemetery. Yes, the Jewish cemetery does exist in Penang. It’s located in Jalan Zainal Abidin (formerly known as Jalan Yahudi).
Very nice picture man!
By the way, the mee banjir udang seriously look like there’s only prawn! How much did it cost anyway?
The Heritage Walk people there are very good from what I remember. It’s a great way to see the city 🙂
Ben: Ah I think someone mentioned it, but we didn’t go there this time.
shaoweii: Yah super banjir udang! It was around RM10 with 12-13 prawns.
julian: Yah very interesting, definitely worth going around.
I am a sucker for shadow bokeh (penumbras) in the first 3!
