Penang Street Photography

The images on this page were shot with a Ricoh GRD IV and Olympus PEN F. Right about my two favorite cameras in the world. They have been processed with these street photography presets. The color ones are form Elixir Color (the larger bundle).

I didn’t find Penang too much a street photography friendly location. That’s if you like to go off the beaten path like you would in New York or Hong Kong and others.

There’s long stretches of roads that simply are…long, boring stretches of roads. But go to one specific area and you are in street heaven.

Of course, I am talking about the Penang street art area in Georgetown. Now, let’s get something straight, this area is Instagram bait, and was probably made as a tourist trap.

But there you’ll find plenty of subjects to photograph and make successful images. I am primarily a black and white street photographer, but to my surprise I was gravitating towards color images in Penang.

There’s also something about the yellow architecture there that is very reminiscent of Hanoi. I’ve lived there two years and the yellow was strong there and so it is also in Penang. Probably a vestige of colonial times.
