St Anne’s Feast

Solemn worshippers stream into church during the annual St Anne’s Feast in Bukit Mertajam. I set the camera’s shutter speed to 3 seconds, clicked and zoomed quickly during the brief exposure. This created an unusual and fascinating picture of the devotees walking with candles towards the altar. The Church of St. Anne started life as a little chapel in 1846. Hundreds of thousands of Catholics and tourists congregate at the festival site near Penang each year.
