Kaki limas (five legs) are rare in Ubud. If one is around, it always catches my eye. This kaki lima was spotted just north of Ubud.
Two Worlds of Bali
Steeped in tradition yet living in the modern world—the dichotomy of Bali.
Life is in your face on the streets of Indonesia. Bali is no exception.
Beggars, vendors, street food sellers, & taxi drivers are a big part of every day Bali. This is why street photography here is never a dull moment.

Street Photography Karma
I believe in karma when it comes to street photography. I believe that if your mind & eye are open to all forms of beauty and your camera is at the ready, then good rewarding photos will come to you.
I met this woman Grating fresh coconut (Nyuh in Balinese) on the way to an early morning portrait session. I had three bags of gear, but still managed to have my trusty rangefinder around my neck.

Glimpses of ogoh-ogoh
Every banjar (Balinese community) is preparing for the night before Nyepi (Balinese Silent Day/New Year – 7 March 2019). This means you can see glimpses of the famous ogoh-ogoh statues being built everywhere.
In Bali, it seems that every week there’s an auspicous festival or special holiday. But, Nyepi is unique. And, the night before Nyepi is when the ogoh-ogoh are released.
