The People of Pulau Aur, Malaysia

One of the young dive crew, who was paid to load the tanks and divers onto the dive boats.

The beautiful older sister - she was absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to see her again. Her smile was infectious.

All climbing aboard, ready for their turn to take the leap into the waters.

One, two, three, go! The older brother leapt into the crystal clear waters of Pulau Aur each time I counted to three.

The little one of the family.

Family photo.

The big brother, who did not smile, but enjoyed me taking photos of him jumping off the boat.

This young lady was stunning. She loved the camera and the camera loved her. I have many photos of her, because she enjoyed smiling into the camera and then looking at herself in the photo afterwards. If i was a model scout, i would think that she possibly has a future in front of the camera. Honestly.

It was clear that the little one was the youngest brother of this girl. She looked after him everywhere he went.

This little one was a little shy, and was not too sure what to make of the camera - i even showed him a photo of himself and he was awfully confused!

Women in Malaysia wear some of the most beautiful garments, despite the heat and humidity.

This kid loved copying me as I pulled faced at him. He loved the camera!

This woman laughed at everything we did.


  1. What happy people and what a life. Great job Kate. The camera takes very clear shots. Mum.

  2. Looks like the new camera is working well. Great Shots - Joy
