Alive

Jak Photo Walk 12

This man was in one of the food markets in North Jakarta.  He was trying to maneuver his bike-cart out of the market so he could make a delivery.  As soon as he saw my camera, he turned from a serious businessman to a comedian.  He came alive for a few minutes when he became this entertainer.

Then, he needed to move on and get to work.  Mood came on and off like a switch.

 


Photo Friday: Serene

water temple

Water: so devastating and so peaceful.

This is the water temple in Bali called Tanah Lot. It is located on the Indian ocean and it is beautiful. The sound of the waves coming in is nearly hypnotic. The Hindus in the area were celebrating a full moon when we were there and they walked quietly through the water to get to the temple to make their offerings. So serene.

On the other side, the side of devastation, my city of Jakarta is still underwater. We got news today that a Kampung (village) in East Jakarta where my wife visited only last Saturday is now entirely underwater. The inhabitants had to evacuate without anything they owned, which was not much to start.

Please pray for the people of Jakarta, that they will find serenity soon.


Photo Friday: Close

I find that when I put my camera on the ground, or upside-down on a train ceiling, or against a wall, I get the most interesting results, just because it’s close to something.


Photo Friday: At Play!

I had the pleasure of traveling to Sulawesi last week, to the city of Palu.  We  went to the rural areas and visited a school, where a number of boys were playing soccer on some of the nicest grass I’ve seen since coming to Indonesia.

This boy was playing with his friends until he noticed us watching…then he did his best Beckham impersonation.


Photo Friday: In Motion

Not much time to post tonight, but I wanted to post this photo of motorcycles taking off (in motion) away from me yesterday morning. Can’t wait to buy my own.
