Faces of Penang ..... Old houses

Here's my humble collection of the 'faces' of the pre-war houses and buildings found in the heart of Georgetown, Penang taken during one of our street sessions.
As you can see most of them have been left to rot and 1 or 2 have been restored. Lets hope that someone will do something to help restore some,if not all, of these buildings to their former glories. Its worth it to preserve them for our future generation.
All C&C welcome

Great stuffs. When you grow old, you can show these to your grandchildren.
BTW, try to fix the perspective using photoshop.

in my humble opinion lah hor....
for building shots preferable to include the ground in the frame this makes the building look more solid (sitting on solid ground instead of floating in the frame)

but this is just a observation oonly la hor... donch marah yer....

because i also always shoot one batang of tower from out of no where against the sky...

Noted. Dun worry .. I won't marah..... I agree with u. Good observation. Just that sometimes, there are things that are distracting like a bike, a parked car (#3) and tong sampah that stick out like a bisul and I'm forced to crop them . Also, there are times its the person bhind the camera that shoot til senget (#7 )... so have to rotate the pic and crop til the building fly up the air But I'll keep that in mind when i go suut suut again. Thank you

Would prefer to see more vibrant colours, cause most of the panels were painted with glossy paints.

Just a slight curve adjustment will do.
