Penang Street Photo - On Reading...

Old Gentleman On Reading...
During my Penang trip last December, a local friend brought me and my friends to Penang's popular hang out place for local artists and many expatriates and tourists likewise. The place is called ChinaHouse. 

It's cosy and has a good atmospheric decors. We walked through from a pub, which is the back part of ChinaHouse, to the main front cafe, and in between it's this nice quiet garden with red strips of fabric hanging on the surrounding trees and a miniature house placed on the edge of a pond (as shown below).

In the garden, sat an old gentleman who was enjoying his book until we came along and disturbed his peace and pleasure which I believe he found it annoying. He had the whole garden for himself. Anyway he carried on his reading.

As the saying goes "At the right place at the right time." Everything came into place as the lighting was great and I took a few shots of the quiet wall-mannered gentleman who was so engrossed in his reading that he didn't know I was taking his photographs.
