If you happen to be in Georgetown Penang, especially on the weekdays;
do wonder about to the small lanes in this little town,
you will find many interesting activities which are usually
family-run small businesses.
Take some time to talk to them so that they know your
intentions before you take the photographs,
I assure you will not regret ...

I chat with this man for an hour before I did the photographs ...
He taught me a few things about life ...

I have never thought about how incense is made, so this is fascinating to see.

Thanks for your comment on my gardening blog. Biodegradable plastic may indeed be the way to go - I wonder if it's available in the large sheets that would be needed to cover an allotment plot. Perhaps that's a gap in the market, waiting to be filled.
