Photographer's Note

Reaching Up (GPS: 5.41479, 100.33648) is a mural painted on a wall along Cannon Street, George Town. It is located across the street from the Anak-Anak Kota clubhouse, and within a short walking distance to Khoo Kongsi and the Acheen Street Mosque.

"Reaching Up" depicts a little boy reaching for a hole in the wall. He appears to be standing on a chair and inching himself as high as he could reach. The painting was created by Ernest Zacharevic in conjunction with the 2012 George Town Festival. Since its completion, it has grown increasing number of visitors coming to take photos with it.
The mural was given a touch up by the artist again in 2016. Time and the elements have contributed to the mural's decay ever since... another touch up wouldn't go amiss.
