Well I made it safely to Bali and have spent the last 3 days walking around Legian where I have found myself capturing images outside my comfort zone. It has been quite the experience to photograph complete strangers and the image that is attached to this blog has to be my standout favorite.
The way she stares at me not to mention how she stands out amongst the others without the mask and the brighter clothing. But what really makes me love this image is the way the 3 other women are staring at her. Now as much as I could quite simply have captured a moment in time that they happened to be looking in her direction. The image could also be interpreted as though they are looking down on her and she is looking to me save her from them. It's strange since I'll never truly know her story.
I have now arrived in Ubud and whilst I wait for my room to be ready, I have found a lovely Bar & Grill to relax and write this blog. For me this is where the adventure really begins. From here on I am treading new territory and will begin to explore rural Bali. This has been the whole point of the Journey with Legian just a way to ease into the Bali life and language. Also I get to see the Monkeys and who could not be excited to see them.
Well that's it for now, I'll put up a blog once I've explored more.
