Some two hours spent in a seaport (Part 1)

This morning I planned to go to a seaport which is situated within a short distance from my office – for anybody interested to know, the seaport’s name is Merak Seaport. This is passengers and also commodity/trading goods seaport where people use public ferryboats to cross the Sunda strait, leaving Java island and to get to the southernmost tip of Sumatra island.

Though it was already past noon when I left the office and the sun was burning relentlessly, I decided to go on with the plan. There I might learn something about photography and about taking snapshots of people, so I thought. Contrary to a newspaper I read in the morning, the port was actually not too overcrowded with people at the time, yet. Spent some two hours taking pictures there.
