So this is my new home - Penang. I've been coming up here regularly since I first arrived in Malaysia some 5.5 years ago, but now it's where I'll hang my camera.
Don't get me wrong - no hard feelings KL. You were good to me but it was time to move on.
Since moving here I've had a chance to take several people around on photo walks and I'm always amazed what we'll find.
There's always something around every corner.

Love the photo's. The blood one turned out great, wish I had the balls to take a photo of that too. The man sleeping in the tuktuk is very Penang, I could almost reach out to him in the photo and wake him up. Thanks for the inspiration.

These are great photos. I really enjoy seeing what life is like so far away. I too like the photos of the man sleeping in his tuktuk with the sandals resting below.

Were the blood for prayers? I have never seen bloods in bowls like that, even though I grew up in Penang!!! Where was that shot?

Liz, I guess I'm lucky that blood and guts don't really bother me much. Plus I seem to be drawn to the color red no matter what it is.
Bee, I shot that behind Campbell St. market. It's duck blood so I would suppose they were making blood 'dofu'.
FYI - I went back to where the trishaw driver was sleeping and found him - surprise - having a nap in his trishaw! Love George Town.

what is that object in the 3rd paragraph?

Nate - it's a weathered motorcycle. I liked the 'blue'.

Dave and Robyn - have u guys been to Sea Pearl Lagoon seafood restaurant at Tanjung Tokong. I thought it's a great place for photography (the old pre-war buildings before the restsurant, the "fort" thingy, and I think Dave would love it! I love it that you can always find surprises in Penang! Another place is Teluk Bahang Malay kampung where fishing boats parks beside thevkampung house, etc. There is a "fish market" beside this popular seafood restaurant (beside the police station). Go check them out if you haven't, oh, and Teluk Kumbar.

Bee - Right. Telok Bahang is a great place to photograph. I've spent some time there in the past and plan to spend more in the months ahead. We'll need to check out the seafood restaurant. Thanks!
