Perhentian Island. Malaysia
“The name “perhentian” means “stopping point” in Malay, referring to their longstanding role as a waypoint for traders between Bangkok and Malaysia. The islands were sparsely inhabited by fishermen for centuries, although tourism now accounts for most economic activity. The Perhentian Islands appear on many maps of the nineteenth and twentieth century as ‘The Station Islands’. This arises
from the British colonial period, as an English translation from the Malay “point to stop”.
“this image was made in Padang indonesia. I made it when I walked along the Beach, in about 3 hours, and was able to capture this wonderful subject from a variety of angles, with different backgrounds and foregrounds and in changing light.
I always say “Get Around” your subject, and this one allowed me to do just that.”
