Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

At the Market, Yangon, Myanmar

Almost every neighborhood in Yangon has a local market.  The markets are a great place to meet new people and get a feel for local life.

Market Day- Mt. Rinjani, Lombok

At the Market – Kuta, Lombok

The Market in Kuta, Lombok is pretty extensive, and the people are welcoming to a stranger with a camera.  It’s also just a couple hundred yards off the beach.  Go in the morning for the best light, and the best deals.

(below) This is one of my favorite images from Kuta.  Even though it didn’t work out, I had a vision of just the girl in the middle posing against the fence behind them.  I approached, made small talk, and then asked if I could take a picture.  The answer was yes.  Then, as I was setting up my light, she invited all the other girls to come in, and they lined up just so.  I saw one thing, but when I joined with others it turned into something different.  That may be the essence of traveling.

Morning Market – Ubud, Bali

Right in the center of Ubud is an old market.  Early in the morning, it’s packed with locals grabbing fruits, vegetables, fish and meat for the day.  By about 9am, it completely switches over to a tourist market that sells the regular flotsam and jetsam of the tourist trail.  I went at about 6:00, but I’ve heard that it’s even going at 4:00, which would also be cool to see.

 

Kenny - Hey Great pics. I'm off to ubud in August. How did you get the shots from above, is there a walk way or something? Thanks MattJuly 5, 2014 - 7:13 am
