Bagan Lalang I - Lowtide

This is a piece I did when holidaying in Bagan Lalang, a rivermouth fishing village in Selangor. Because of the shallow seafront, fishermen here do not use big fishing boats but rather small ones for inshore fishing. The reddish blob is the fishing net or pukat which fishermen lay across the seas, parallel to the shore, to catch any fish coming to feed close to the shore. Most of these small boats are made of fiberglass and motorised.

This piece was done in Sept 2004.
