These are some of the photos I brought back from my trip to the Miri markets. Two locations – Tamu Muhibbah and Old Tamu. They were taken with my little Olympus XA. I am very amazed at what this little rangfinder camera can do. It is a good as an SLR. It is so compact and totally fits well on my palm, so much so that sometimes I could see my finger covering the side of the picture I take without me realising it.
Many times I have gone back to my hometown Miri but have never been more satisfied with the photos took than this trip’s. Also thanks to my friend Mandy who happened to be in town for a short business trip at the time so we managed to meet up and go for a photo outing together on the 10th May. As we walked through the markets we were amazed at how friendly the market vendors really are when we talked to them and asked them for their pictures to be taken.
