Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion by Cvail73

The Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion in (Georgetown, Penang) malaysia the Winner of the UNESCO Conservation Award 2000 National Architecture Award for Conservation 1995.
Also called the blue Mansion. Was the main location for the film ‘Indochine’ featuring Catherine Deneuve.
The Mansion is now also opened as a boutique hotel (where I stayed..).

Photo featured in ‘SilverKris’ a Singapore Airline Magazine in Nov 2008 Issue

It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    I really like the colours here and also the very well balanced composition.

  • Thanks! the whole mansion was beautiful, it was was so peaceful! Built to the best knowledge of feng shui. I must say, I bought a book about it after that, because this house felt so good!
