"Tangkap gambor sokmo, pagi tadi pun dah ado ore tangkap gambo"- that was the reaction that i got from a makcik when i shoot her photo. I kept saying to myself that i need to be "muka tembok" in order to do street photography but to overcome the the big shyness in me ( in direct translation - "kemaluan besar" ) i feel that it was very-very difficult . If you see my photo below you will see that most of the photo is taken from a distance and the face of the subject is away from the lense. Street photography require some skills and good PR , you need to approach the subject and skillfully strike a light conversation with the subject and the rest is history . Will continue to improve my skill in the art of street photgraphy.
The location of my hotel is very close to the pekan sari , approximately 250m in distance . You can just walk from the hotel . The atmosphere there is quite hectic with the buyer and seller haggling with each other to agree on a price , people from across the river alighting from the bot penambang and the numerous small stall which were setup at the road kerb where local were having their cup of teh tarik for breakfast.The variety of item which were on sale here is truely sensory overload for me.So far in my travel i believe Pekan Sari Temerloh is the closest that you can get to an authentic traditional farmers market(with the exception of farmers market in sabah n sarawak) .But if you believe otherwise , do give me suggestion on other location as i would like to check it out myself.
The variety of freshwater fish is also beyond expectation and i had fun in identifying most of them. In fact some of the fish on sale you can only find it in a pet store or exotic restaurant in KL . Some of the fish which are truely alien to me are ikan tilan and ikan ubi .
