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.

Everywhere I go in Indonesia, I find happy people.


My wife’s (a) flower

lombok frangipaniMy wife is a big fan of these flowers.  They grow everywhere around here.  What you see above is a Frangipani.  They are incredibly fragrant and ubiquitous in Indonesia.

A tip for all of you newly married (and maybe old-married) people out there:  find out what your significant other’s favorite flower is and bring it home every once in a while.  Just because.


I love being a parent

Those are my kids.  We were walking back from a short visit to Pura Batu Bolong, a Hindu temple near our hotel in Lombok.  They got ahead of my wife and me.  They are incredibly great kids.  When I became a parent, I had no idea how much happiness my children would bring me.  The happy is immeasurable.

They’ll steal your heart

Those smiles are dangerous.
