Nothing motivates me more that traveling to a new place. We have just been informed that we are being moved to Jakarta Indonesia. I made a quick trip there to pick a house and start seeing what is needed in order for us to settle in properly. It was business trip so no real chance to take some good pictures.
The good news is that as I ran around the city, I found that there are some amazing possibilities for photography. So as we plan how to move a family of five with a dog, halfway around the world, I thought I would spend a few blog posts discussing travel photography.
Below is a short video of a street in Jakarta. Now I should mention that Jakarta is a modern city with some high rise building like you find in any large city. Obviously, I am not interested in the Starbucks or Wendy's. I am interested in the traditional Jakarta, the one that emerged after colonization. So this is what draws my eye. Take a look below and let me know what you think.
Enjoy the short video and if you are interested in travel photography, check back over the next week to see the blog series.
