How Can Something So Right Be Sarong?
We were wandering down a street in Langkawi, Malaysia, when this sight stopped me in my tracks. It was just a tiny rack outside a shop on a long street, but my photography-radar-activation clicked into overdrive immediately.
I walked briskly away from the family (they’re used to me going walkabout) and I homed in on the sarongs. It wasn’t just the way they were displayed that caught my eye, it was the soft lines of the fabric and the striking range of colours.
Also, part of the attraction for me was the fact that there are so many sarongs hanging closely together. This gave me vertical lines to concentrate on, in addition to the delicate designs.
You want to know what I reckon? In the tropics, a sarong is definitely the fabric of society.
