Singing in the gentle breeze from the Straits of Malacca 在轻柔的马六甲海峡微风歌唱中 ...

From the violinist at the foothills of St Paul hill ,,,, It's hard to find a true full time buskers (street perfromer) here in Malaysia. Today, I met one at this foothills and another one ...


... who is a singing musician amongst the ruins of the Chapel at the summit of St Paul hill ....


 ... you can feel the gentle breeze from the Straits of Melacca ....


Perhaps it is not difficult to imagine how it was in this beautiful chapel about 400 - 500 years ago where Europeans were here in this same place under these same gentle breeze .... 


Looking out at the Straits of Melacca from the summit of St Paul hill ....

I'll stick with the violinist and the tree branch, the latter looks like a claw.
Beautiful black and white image.
