Missed A Spot
This was shot in Bali while wandering around in the tourist hub of Ubud. Behind the main streets full of shops we would see countless private homes and temples just below the surface where the otherwise touristy gloss would quickly vanish into glimpses of how many honestly live within the island. While it would have been interesting to explore such areas our time there was brief and we were not as aware of how locals would react to photographers knocking on doors or sneaking about with cameras. Still though I liked this small alleyway running deeper into the heart of a city block and the way one side of the wall was in a greater state of decay than the other. I was perhaps too heavy with the color saturation now that I look closer but I still like the textures of the wall and the vanishing path in the distance. I have one more image pulled from Bali at the moment and I will see what I can do to get it up towards the end of the week.
Also, I decided to take the time to post this to serve as desktop chaser of sorts after my lengthy post on mobile photography yesterday. I have long searched for the right balance of being down to earth while writing for this site (as though writing to a friend), while also expanding my reach to write some things in a slightly more formal way. Seems my write up on mobile photography ended up feeling more like an essay than my usual affair and I am sorry if that put anyone off. I suppose I will do my best to keep things simple in the future but there will always be moments and topics that warrant a less personal approach. If you have any thoughts, opinions, or preferences please feel free to email me or leave a comment below. This site is for you after all.
