The Kawasaki I didn’t know existed

lombok binter

I love bikes like this.  Classic, although it is probably from the 1980’s.   The saddlebags really round it out.

Before seeing this beauty, I had no idea that Kawasaki made a bike called a “Binter.”  I’m a Honda guy, but this bike looks great.  I kind of wanted to take it for a ride.

What do you think?


Photo Friday: what I found

lombok bridge boy

He was sitting on the edge of the bridge, watching my son and me walk along the edge of the road.  I did not notice him until a loud motorcycle came by and drew my attention in his direction.  I waved and smiled.  He waved and smiled back.  I raised my camera and he gave me this look.

I do not know if this look means it was okay to take the photo or not.

 


Old school

SFU vine mapleThis photo was taken at Simon Fraser University.  I’ve had little time to take many photos lately, and I found this and felt a little pang of homesickness.  I’m not homesick; I’m really happy here, but this photo is one of my all-time favorites.  Those vine maples are so pretty.

More Jakarta tomorrow, okay?


Delicate, too

One, too

 

I get why Monet was inspired by these.


WordPress Photo Challenge: Green

I like the green in Indonesia.  There is so much, and so little, in Jakarta.  Jakarta has palm trees and greenery everywhere, but no parks, no lawns, no big green spaces.  Travelling out to Yogyakarta was very refreshing – lots of rice fields and parks and green spaces.

The mountain in the one shot is Mount Merapi,  Yes, the one that blows up every few years with devastating results.  It’s lava and ash are what make this ground so great for growing green things.  A blessing and a curse, I guess.
