Rice fields…again?

 

I’m on my way to Sulawesi, but I’m posting photos from my last trip to the Yogyakarta area.  I think this is the last rice field photo I’ll post for a while, but I hope you don’t mind.  I find them so beautiful.

What I also find beautiful is the very traditional way so many Indonesian farmers work their fields.  Giant fields are worked with small shovels and hoes.  Pretty amazing.


Weird Geometry…the WordPress Photo Challenge

 

Just a quick one…second photo posted today…for the WordPress Photo Challenge:  Geometry.

I think it’s the strange geometric shapes of rice fields that appeal to those of us foreign to Asia.  The idea that someone took the initiative to re-carve the landscape to fit their needs is impressive, but it’s a little like seeing the Canadian prairies for the first time from the air in miniature.

Very visually stimulating.


Wow, I’ve not posted in a while.

I’m sick.  Boohoo.  Does someone have a remedy for a head that feels as though it’s stuffed with cotton?

Here’s a farm.  Meh.
