Gili Air 2016
Gili Air 2016
Shot on Gili Air one morning. A gathering of about 100 villagers dragging and pushing a huge boat into the ocean. I took loads of photos and afterwards I got chatting with one of the locals, Agus. He invited me for coffee and sweet rice. I went over and sat on some bamboo with about ten locals. I got Agus' email address and told him I would sent him any good shots i got. This is one of the first shots i've edited. Gilli Air, Lombok 2016

This family lived in this small shack just a few hundred metres from our luxury Villa in Lovina. I couldn't get over the absurdity of it. It's a clear demonstration of the economic disparity between Balinese people & the tourists who rent or own these luxury Villa's. We got to know the staff who worked in our Villa, really warm friendly people and I'm pretty sure they were paid and treated well by the western owners. One guy in particular told us one night that his wife made board shorts for Ripcurl or Quicksilver or some other company. I can't remember how much he told us she got paid but it was buttons, nothing, nada. 20c an item rings a bell. So many people travel to Bali to stay in these luxury Villa's and don't ever see this side of Indonesia. I found it interesting to scratch beneath the surface and discover a little bit of the real Bali.

Ubud 2013 Another shot from my trip to Bali.
Selfie, Bali 2013
I feel that 2015 has been a pretty slow start for me Flickr wise. Photography is such a subjective thing, and I have been pouring over my photographs, editing them, rating them, and then just leaving them. Not wishing to post them onto Flickr because I don't think they are "up to scratch" or something. At other times I'll rattle through them and post away, thinking "these look great!". What's good is having another eye to look at my shots, and i'm often surprised when someone (usually Alison) tells me one of my shots looks great. A shot which I wouldn't have thought much about and would have just left sitting on my laptop, maybe to go back to at a later date. But I have come to realise that Flickr is my "second opinion" or my "other eye". You guys are the ones who have looked, favourited, commented and kept me striving to be better at what I do. So here's my first shot in 8 days. And oldie. One of the flagged images sitting on my laptop waiting to be processed. Bali 2013

Decided to take part in the 100 Strangers Flickr group & this is number 1 for me. Taken in Nusa Lembongan in Bali, near the mangroves up North. Beautiful island I would definately go back. Close enough to Denpasar Airport but still relatively untouched by heavy tourism. This chap's name was Made. Since most Balinese are Hindus, most names are Hindi or Sanskrit, while others still use native Balinese names. Regardless of being male or female, each person receives one of four names based on birth order. Made here was out tending to his seaweed farm, the main industry in Lembongan before tourism took over. I first heard about the 100 Strangers group while living in Melbourne but Made is my first "stranger". For some reason it is easier to take pictures of a stranger when in a foreign country. Probably because Made approached me & offered to take me on a tour of the mangroves in his boat. I declined having made plans that day. I took shots of many other "strangers" while in Bali but some I didn't get names due to the language barrier. Incidentally, Made is the guy in another Black & White shot of mine called Ocean View, here <a href="http://flic.kr/p/fyK2hJ" rel="nofollow">flic.kr/p/fyK2hJ</a>. 99 strangers to go then... This picture is #1 in my 100 strangers project.
