Malaysia through the lenses of a Mat Salleh
By Philippe A.Durant
Happy Tuesday! We’re nine days already in this virtual photography journey. My sincere thanks to those following, those who ordered some print-outs and those who appreciate my photos.
Day 9: Along the Strait of Malacca
“The Strait of Malacca is a narrow stretch of water, 930km in length, between the Malay Peninsula (Peninsular Malaysia) and the Indonesian island of Sumatra. As the main shipping channel between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, it is one of the most important shipping lanes in the world. It is named after the Malacca Sultanate that ruled over the archipelago between 1400 and 1511, the center of administration of which was located in the modern-day state of Malacca, Malaysia.” (Wikipedia).
The sea and the beaches on the West coast of the peninsula are not the cleanest. The heavy maritime traffic and oil industry located on the coast are partly responsible. Here are some captures taken outside of Malacca together with the Rumah Demang Abdul Ghani in Merlimau outside of the city, one of the most beautiful traditional Malacca-style Malay houses in the area.
Do follow my daily postings about different themes and/or location and do not hesitate to comment constructively. Embark in a photographic journey in Malaysia through the lenses of a Mat Salleh.
