photoblog image Clan Jetties of Pengkalan Weld 3

Clan Jetties of Pengkalan Weld 3

Since 1882, the waterfront was used as public ferry landing jetties and also for the loading and unloading of goods. Initially they had only basic amenities (even as of my last visit, I could see an outhouse toilet with crude rectangular holes cut into the floor), but present day residents enjoy all modern comforts, including air-conditioning.

 

The figure seen up there on the jetty is a much more driven photographer - with serious looking equipment, a tripod and a lightmeter. He probably knows a thing or two about photography that I don't.

I doubt he could improve much on your sunset, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It was a very nice time of the day and very cool too, Ray.
Just beautiful, Ayush! You have to wonder sometimes, though, how much better their images are. We assume they know what they're doing - but I think the same of BMW drivers! smile
Ayush Basu: I like your BMW analogy, Elizabeth smile
Super sunset shot, Ayush. Yes. I always assume a tripod implies superior photo skills, and a light meter, well !
Ayush Basu: I was pleased to be there at that time. It was quite cool as well, Frank.

The figure on the pier is an essential component of your delightful image Ayush
Ayush Basu: Well, since he was not inclined to move out on his own and he was out of earshot anyway ...... grin

Magnifiques couleurs pour ce ciel avec les nuage moutonneux.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Martine. I was pleased to have been there at that time.
You certainly got a shot that is the envy of any photographer.
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you, Mary. I was pleased to be there at that time.
He could be all show Ayush. You have a fine picture here
Ayush Basu: That is a possibility that cannot be discounted, Bill.
It's the eye that makes the photographer, not the tools...
Ayush Basu: Thank you for that reminder, Larry.

What a glorious sky smile
Ayush Basu: It was a very nice time of the day and very cool too, CP.
It sure looks nice with that great sky.
Ayush Basu: I was pleased to be there at that time, Michael.
Amenities or not, they have a nice waterfront view/
Ayush Basu: That is undeniable, Michael.

wow, an outstanding sunset picture! and that lone figure won't get much more than you did, he probably just has older equipment...
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the generous praise, Elaine. He certainly had a lot of patience and dedication.
