We recently had another holiday weekend here in Malaysia, so we planned a trip to Taiping, a city about 4 hours north of KL by bus. The city is filled with old colonial architecture from its tin boom in the 19th Century. In addition, it was also a place for a lot of firsts in Malaysia, it had the first operational train station, the first museum, and the first English church.
The city center is filled with a wide range of old architecture and everywhere we looked there was a building or detail that called out to be studied. We dedicated a lot of time to taking pictures from various angles and getting up close to some minute details.
Capturing architecture and small details have actually been challenging for me, as most of my photography before was of landscapes and natural settings. With that in mind, I’ve really enjoyed it as there appears to be an infinite amount of details to find in these old buildings and towns. I feel like I’ll never get tired of photographing them, but I guess time will tell.
I wanted to use this blog to share some of the architecture and details we found, so I hope you enjoy some of things that caught my eye while we walked around Taiping.
