Opportunistic Street Photography
Today, after running some morning errands. I was stuck in the middle of a huge traffic jam in the centre of Ubud. That usually means one thing–upacara. In other words, there was a Balinese Hindu Religious procession in progress.
Rather than waiting in the hot sun inhaling exhaust from dozens of idling vehicles, I pulled over. I took out my camera and began walking towards the Ubud Palace. I wasn’t disappointed. I stumbled upon an elaborate & beautiful Ngaben procession in progress.
