The Boat

Seberang Takir is a place where boats docked. It is located right at the river mouth facing the South China Sea. This makes that village to be perfect for fishermen as they are shielded from the rough seas during monsoon season.

The following photo shows the a boat docked by a self made jetty. This looks like a deep sea boat as the size is big. Generally – the boat is operated by locals. I am not sure if they are owned by any particular company but based on my conversation with the locals, the cost of a fishing boat is not cheap. Some can go up to few hundred thousands.

The row of boats below looks more like near shore type fishing boats. It does seem to have the ability to stay over night.

Boats are an essential aspect of daily lives for the Seberang Takir folks. I was told that the back then, the main transport is by boat. That is of course until the bridge was opened.

Day Off

Its a day off for the fishermen when I came and visited them. According to them, the next few days will be high waves, as such it is too dangerous for them to go out there. So – they are taking day off until the weather gets better.

Note that now is the monsoon season, as such the probability of these to occur is high.

Kampung Shed

Another shot of a kampung house, but this one is in Kuala Terengganu. This is located in Seberang Takir few meters away from the jetty.

It honestly look pretty small. Most like a shed rather than a house. And given that most of the houses around here are occupied – now I think its a shed.

Kid By The Jetty

As I was exiting the bot penambang from the Jeti Seberang Takir to Jeti Pasir Payang – I saw this boy. Quickly I took the photo.

Bot penambang is a transport method across the river.

Below are a set of images of bot penambang. Taken during my trip – combination of both at Seberang Takir and Pasir Payang.

My Editing Workflow

I thought today I wanted to share my editing workflow. I’ve changed my workflow many times, and this is my latest workflow. As I generally shoot black and white now, the workflow is far more straightforward as I don’t need to worry about colours.

Please ignore the number of photos that I have because I have not figure out how to manage my asset. I have way too many images; as such, it is not so productive for me to change now though it is probably better for me to start changing. I will perhaps research more on this later as it is too disruptive to change now!

The starting photo in its full glory!

The photo looks a bit washed out because of the difficult lighting situation. The day was extremely cloudy as it was predicted to rain.

The end result:

Depending whether the feel that you have, the photo may look a bit over processed. I prefer a more contrasty photo.
