Sungai Pagar Beach

End of last year, I was transferred to Labuan Science School. The school is only about 200 metres from a beach. Every weekend, the beach is frequent by locals to picnic with family members. The breeze from the sea is refreshing. The beach is also a place to alleviate work related stress. Thanks Allah for giving me the opportunity to give my service in the school.

Street Photography – The Faces of People of Labuan

August 31 is the independence day of Malaysia. It is celebrated nationwide but because of the recent tragedy that affected the country, this year celebration was in small scale. In the Federal Territory Labuan however, there was no celebration. There was no parade; the only activity was an explorace.

This year, the Independence Day falls on Sunday. Eve though there was no celebration in Labuan, the weekly flea market was still in operation. The Sunday flea market is where local people sell local products ranging from local food to clothing. It is also a day for family outing.

The Sunday market is a place for great street photography. I frequent the weekend market and it never disappoint me in capturing the moments people of Labuan spending their great time together, either with friends or with family. I share some of the pictures taken at the Sunday flea market in Labuan. All pictures were taken with the Sony NEX-6 and the old but ever reliable Minolta 70-210mm f/4 lens. Enjoy!
