This blog is about black and white photography. Black and white photography has always been my passion. I believe that a black and white image has more impact than a colour image.

Thatched Roof


Back in the old days (before the electricity, Astro and digital cameras) my uncles house roof was made of thatched leaves from toddy plant. The house was on stilt and made of wood. The house was enerhy and weather efficient. It was cool inside the house even on hot sunny day.

My house was different. It had metal sheets as roof. It was hot as oven during daytime and cold like an icebox at night. When I came back from school, I can't stay home because it was too hot. I would go to my uncle's house, read a chilren's novel and took a nap. It was cooling.

Good ol thatched roof. A cooling invention.
