Down The Street

IMG_1101
walking down the street in Penang Heritage Town.
old folks are all around. hardly can find teenagers or young people there.
numbers of thoughts came trough my mind.
wondering why are they still staying there..
wondering who was the great one that have the idea to build houses. let us, the younger generation have a comfortable place to stay, yet, there are still a lot of people that never appreciate what they are having right now.

a simple shop and a space to sleep are what they have in their simple life.
small business or trading done by them.
having daily needs is already more than enough for them.
life without air-con every night. without electricity nor lights.
no plasma TV, handphone, computer, mp3 nor PSP.
no comfortable bed nor bolster to hug but their life still going on well.

almost everyone have their own religion.
and they truly believe with their exist.
go to temple consistently and pray to God sincerely.
helping out there without asking for any repay.

get blessing from God
healthy and happiness are what they usually ask for.

usually their parents will arrange their partner for them.
yet they rarely go against it.
trust and loyal to their partner.
the love will grow, only after their marriage.
most of them even don't mind sharing a husband.
although it's just simple life, but they still enjoy their life to the fullest.
some still staying at the old house, just to preserve their culture.

FeeQ said...

nice shot. Next time when u shoot, just be careful with the frame ya =)

Camy said...

Feeq, thanks alot! frame as in like? any example like what i shouldn't put in the picture or what?

FeeQ said...

Example is the last photo. U crop it too much. try to shoot landscape.
When u shoot something, create a little bit space between the subject (in the photo) + the border. If u crop it too much, the photo will look like cant breath.

Camy said...

Feeq, understand de. try to improve. thanks alot! :D. i'll try make it breath normally :)
