Photographer's Note

Sometimes it is not necessary to shot your picture with a DSLR to obtain the given result. With a compact camera switching to macro mood can easily assist one to get a nice macro shot.

This picture was taken in St.Paul Church in Malacca ("Melaka" in Malay)on one of the stone carvings (this part read as VADERS) .The Portuguese built this church in 1521 and called it "Our Lady of the Hill". It acquired its present name from the Dutch, who built a new Lutheran church (Christ Church) down the hill, while St. Paul's became a funereal ground and a white-washed navigational marker for passing ships. It owes much of its fame to St. Francis Xavier, who preached, lived, and was laid to rest here. The Saint's remains were later transferred to Goa but his legend continues to grace new visitors here every day.

Now, it is a place of worship and a great tourist attraction, because, there rested, for eight and a half months, the remains of a most extraordinary man of God:- St. Francis Xavier.

Picture taken with Canon Powershot A420.
