KK Markets (Kota Kinabalu)

Kota Kinabalu, South China Sea, 2 May 2019.
.

Jools and I arrived in KK and met the group for our Sabah Wlidlife Photography, organised by NatureArt Lab . .. There were fifteen of us altogether, all from Australia and New Zealand, all resident in Australia, and ten resident in Canberra. We had a few days in KK to acclimatise to the heat and humidity of the tropics and on our first full day we visited the markets, both the regular markets and the fish markets.

.

Not much need to comment on most of the images.  They are what you see.  They are all taken with a Fuji X100F, a compact camera with a fixed 35mm-equivalent lens.

The regular markets were undercover and almost something of a maze, with narrow corridors and stores crammed with small items.

Now we were on our way to the fish markets and so were these two, with an impressive load of fish direct from the nearby fishing boats.

The fish markets were much larger and more spacious, with an impressive variety of fish on display.

Jaisalmer to Jodhpur

26th February 2014 (Day 18) Jaisalmer to Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India

A young camel hiding in the trees.

This was a day for travel in the Thar Desert, between Jaisalmer and Jodhpur.  All these images were taken from a moving bus and captions for most are superfluous.

Another bridal party walking along the road.  You may be familiar with the term “getting hitched”; it seems they take that a little more literally in India.  It may not be completely apparent in the image but the bride is connected to the groom by a link of fabric.

This image is from the bus, in motion.  It is at the same location as another image in a previous post where we were arriving at Jaisalmer.  We have left the fort and are heading towards a market.  Apart from this image and the last one, all images in this post are at the markets.

Not sure what he has on the cart….

You wouldn’t want to be underneath those pots in the event of an earthquake….

Two young men who asked me to take their photo.  Few would have a computer so it’s just for the interaction and to see their image in the back of the camera.
