I once blogged about David Atkinson, an amateur photographer who travelled to England overland from Australia and while doing so he took many awesome pictures along the way. One of the pictures which became the cover of his website is the picture below taken in Padang Besar, Perlis circa 1970s.
And recently I was shown a picture by Arthur Teng which he took circa year 2000. Below is the picture taken by Arthur Teng.
It was taken roughly at the same location where David Atkinson took his picture but Arthur’s picture was taken more than twenty years later. It is however pretty interesting to note that the landscape is not very different from the one taken by David. The only difference is the road has been tarred compared to the dirt road in David’s pciture.
Perhaps good photographers think alike and I admit both of them are very good photographers whom I admire very much.
