Pinang Peranakan Mansion

Funny how sometimes life offers an unscheduled stop when you least expect it. I was in town doing a delivery and happened to have some time and my Canon PowerShot G15 with me. Since this little fella is so compact I tend to take it along with me when I go out. Anyway, I made a pit stop at the Pinang Peranakan Mansion located in Church Street, Penang. This place has historical stuff and antiques from the time of the Babas and Nyonyas so I paid the admission fee and went in. The nice thing is that photography is allowed within the premises, flash or no flash. Since I had the G15 I took all the pictures using only available light.

(Above) I did a self portrait with one of the huge wall mirrors. It was only when viewing the picture in my computer that I noticed there were several Philip’s in the picture, heh.

(Below) I like to focus on details—nice stained glass, patterned flooring, Mother of pearl inlays, that sort of thing.

It was a very nice visit…I’m so very impressed with the G15; I tend to bring it everywhere with me. Lovely place, lovely camera.
