Photographer's Note

It was something like a Sunday Fair that day in a small town called Tambunan. The thing is, if you like to see how lively and colorful Sabah is, go find yourself a "Tamu" to walk around in. It is busy, noisy, smoky and you see just about everyone from the surrounding villages, coming over to the fair.

The young Kadazandusun mother was looking happy and cheerful. It must have been good to go out to see friends and to get supplies. Those coming over to this Tamu, are usually in their best dress and putting on a smile for everyone.

She was carrying her baby in a babysling. This one a bit contemporary but still maintaining the old fashion sling way. Usually, instead of the soft fine netting you see here, it would be the "sarong", fashion around the body like a baby sling. Not as technically upbeat as the baby backpack but no baby has been heard complaining not sleeping comfy, nestling in one.

To take photos during Tamu, take your wide to potrait zoom lens and set it to aperture priority. You might like to set your aperture to the fastest your lens could see, to throw off the background as much as it could. You wouldn't have enough time to compose "perfectly" too. For this photo, I just have enough time to candidly shoot her but got the electric pole "sticking" out of the baby head as well.
