early morning at the fisheries wharf

Most of the boats have berthed and had their catch unloaded. This one had just been given a wash. Photographed at the SAFMA wharf, Kota Kinabalu.

This is a busy place from midnight until early morning. The fish stalls and crowd are behind me and to my right, at the Central fish market. Many of these boats have been retired from fishing duties. However, many are now converted into charter boats for off-shore fishing, servicing the lucrative tourism industry.

    Nice, makes me feel a little melancholic and ponderous as to what awaits the day.
