I actually love taking pictures!

..especially nature pictures! Even though i do not own expensive camera but still i love taking pictures..That's why i love going to nature sites where hills, rivers, sea, trees, animals, flowers and all nature elements can be found..siok ba.

I consider my kampung is one of the place that i will like the most even it is not a tourist site, but it does have all the elements. I always feel reluctant to going back to town whenever my holiday is over..macam mau tinggal di kampung ja. Just if Kudat has polytechnic, i'll be the first person apply for transfer.

Seja-seja mau share, the pictures below were taken last January when we went back to my beloved village.'Kampung Lokoton, Kudat'. Its only the pictures itselves. teda edit-edit..:)

My sister..on the way to our paddy farm to collect some vegetables.

The Bamboo shoot.

The banana trees. Usually planted nearby our paddy farm.
The swamp area. I used to play and find crab here during my young days.

The baby pumpkin.
The unripe paddy / rice. I miss the harvesting season where the greeny paddy farm will turn to gold as the rice already ripe.

Si katak. I always see this kind of frog at our home during raining and during harvesting season, it will stay at our rice storage. My mum said, 'Jaga padi ba tu'..
Ikan keli @ catfish. In Rungus we call it 'Gomutan'. I used to imagine that when a centipede fell into river, it will transform to a catfish..huahua..funny! That's why i do not eat this fish.

That's all..ermm i think i like my enttry today so much! :)

Hi, how you doin'? Wow! I love your pics!
You have very good eyes to see what others don't.
And don't worry about having an expensive camera....
The World's best 1 photograph taken of a sunset in b/w till today unbeaten by any any photograph with expensive cameras was taken somewhere in the 1940s with a cheap camera.

It is not the camera. It is the person behind the camera.
And the best photographs are photos your family and friend love...and THAT! Is the best photographs.

I have 2 very old cameras, one a 35 year old Yashica SLR 50mm Electro 35, other one a 14 year Nikon SLR film camera with a 35mm-135mm portrait lens, with accessory flash, tripod.

I use both for my hobby of taking portraits of people, mostly mature ladies. I make them beautiful thru my camera lens.
Only 2 months ago I bought a digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix S1100pj with projector lens. It's a pocket camera, goes where I go now. The older ones too bulky.

Re your beautiful did not take pictures. You create pictures, and each tells 2 pages.
They're well the colours and your perspective and depth. Outstanding!
Keep it up....and remember, its not the camera, its the person behind the camera.

You have a nice day.

Cath: Kamera sy tu yg harga 450 ringgit saja ba..KODAK.

Uncle Lee: Glad you coming here and thank you so much for the thought and warm compliment. I so agree with you, a great picture is not measured by the camera used to snap it.

thank you again and have a nice day.

Hi, just dropped by to say, kopivosian do doungagadu.
Gompizon no iso nozou di ginavo nu.

ps, just curious, you a Kadazan, Orang Ulu, Bidayu, Iban or...?
I have always been fascinated with Sabah and Sarawak people and their various cultures.

Hi Uncle Lee..kopivosian do doungadau kumaa diau. (good morning to you).
Wow, where did u learnt that bahasa? It is in Kadazan language. Well, Kadazan-Dusun is actually the reference for the biggest indigenous group in Sabah, apart from Bajau and Murut.
Kadazan-Dusun then can be divided into some sub-ethnics which is usually named after the settlement area..and i am Rungusian..(Rungus Ethnic) born in Kudat District in Northern Part of Borneo. Most Rungusian reside in this district since indefinite time. Just like the Kadazan-Dusun. Antrepologist say, this ethnic came to sabah 2000 years ago from mainland china but its real history is beyond our knowledge.
As a pure Sabahan, i learned that most ethnics in the family of KADUS (Kadazan-Dusun) has the similarity among others in the language spoken, colour used in most rituals perform during special days such as wedding, beginning of harvesting season and funeral. is such a serious subject learning about who i am (or who we are) but its interesting though.

U. Lee, here i attached some of the sites that sharing information regarding the Rungus ethnic in Sabah.

Regards and 'mindolongoi(menyanyi) sid(dalam) ginavo (hati)'.
