perspective

This image is simply from a walk down the street in Ubud (Bali). I noticed the mask and then saw the woman carrying her burden in the distance. The timing of it was lucky–and sufficient to frame this shot, which is clearly ‘focused’ on the foreground, but which invites a longer look.

joy

This image is from Bali. We were in Ubud, and could not enter the temple area in the monkey forest because the women were preparing for a ceremony and festival to welcome the new moon. As I stood outside the wrought iron gate and watched the women prepare the woven offerings, I was drawn in by this woman. She had a presence about her that intrigued me. As I watched, she began to speak with one of the other woman and in so doing broke into this beautiful smile.
