Cheung Chau

On Cheung Chau island.

The atmosphere is rather relaxed.

IMG_20151126_0014 640

One could dream of a life here.

IMG_20151126_0015 640

It’s one of those possible doorways.

IMG_20151126_0024 640

One could just stand here and admire the wall.

IMG_20151126_0022 640

Lack of love?

An advertising and laundry space.

IMG_20151126_0026 640

Very homely.

IMG_20151126_0028 640

Though sometimes we could be in a hurry.

IMG_20151126_0029 640

Oh I’m dreaming I’m dreaming of a slower pace of life.

IMG_20151126_0030 640

Is it possible?

IMG_20151126_0031 640

It is possible.

IMG_20151126_0032 640

Maybe I’m romanticizing too much.

IMG_20151127_0004 640

It’s a possibility, I suppose.

Having lunch.

IMG_20150819_0012 640

Looks yummy.

IMG_20150819_0016 640

This is also a space of commodity.

IMG_20150819_0019 640

Though people do live and make a living here.

Penang’s Gurney Drive

I was in Penang recently with my family and many of the street pictures were taken with my Olympus XA 2, in-between vacation shots taken with my Canon 600D.

The above was taken while riding a trishaw.

IMG_20150820_0002 640

Another shot, taken from a trishaw.
