Sculpture in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia
I love taking photographs when I travel, but I am selective about it because cameras can make you an outsider, an observer instead of a participant. One thing I like about having a camera is that, even if I don’t use it, I pay a little more attention to the details.
Here are some unpublished photos I have taken in my travels of things the camera helped me to enjoy in a deeper way. They are not works of art but each is a reminder of a feeling.
