Upload & Sell: Off
Me, acting as a snob, silently refused to take any of the murals that littered the streets of Georgetown, Penang
Even after our local guide brought me specially to them (you like taking photos? you'll love them!)
Had to muscle my way through the crowd, deliberately make a show of focusing, cocking the shutter but not take any
Polite thing to do? Thanks goodness it was film, lest he asked to see 'em!
Certainly not a knock on the murals though
They're amazingly beautiful and lifelike, usually incorporating a deliberate play with the environment
Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic, he's certainly a genius

But surely, they've been shot to death
Lovely lovely touches everywhere, wire sculptures, graffiti here and there adding to the quaintness of the town
I gave in and indulged myself a lil'
The storefront of a bike rental shop
Only for you guys of course
Only for you guys
