Time And Tide Wait For No Man or Woman.
At the seaside of Tanjung Sepat, the rustic old wooden jetty was gone, to my surprise and disappointment.
It is being replaced by a 300m long, RM 3.2 million modern pier jutting out into the Straits Of Malacca. It had little character from a photographer’s standpoint. It was reported that the frail old wooden one collapsed. I did feel nervous when I walked on it previously.
Time and tide wait for no man or woman with a camera. I suppose progress, change and modernization are inevitable. There may be dark clouds ahead though, both metaphorically and visually as captured with irony by this pic. I think the gloomy sky represents sadness too.
I was told that the home grown industry is on the decline. As with many small towns, many youths left their hometown to seek better prospects elsewhere. No one can stop the march of time.
