most of the times I carry a camera.
This way if I see something that catches my eyes or something unusual for me, I photograph the scene.
Also I do think that carrying a camera encourages me to look more intensely at the world around me.
I have been living in the city of Solo (central Java) for almost a year now and I must admit that I am getting used to the surroundings and to the way of living of the Indonesians.
« I often plan of traveling to far away places thinking I will make good images instead of just taking the time to make pictures in my own backyard ».
I was patiently waiting outside of the immigration office of the city of Solo in Central Java.
* Bechak or Becak = cycle rickshaw
I travel by bicycle in the small alleys and large streets of Solo, in search of becak drivers.
Some sleeping in their vehicle others wide awake searching for clients.
This way I get to do some exercise while discovering my own backyard and meeting the solitary becak drivers of Solo.
