Chasing Harsh Light During Transition Time

Today, we were blessed with clear skies and harsh light. While in the middle of Bali’s rainy season no less.

About the photo: a market porter strides by a texting young adult and bemo shortly after 8 a.m. (transition time) in front of Pasar Ubud.

Transition Time – Pasar Ubud

Ubud is a Mood

During the day, there are three distinct moods at the pasar. The early morning is the timeless period. Bali’s unadulterated essence is revealed from 4-8 am. The tourist aimed facades are non-existent. From 8-10 am is transition time. After 10 am belongs to the colourful tourist realm.

If you are in Ubud for a few days, I recommend experiencing all three phases of the pasar.

Chasing Harsh Light

The photos above are an example of transition time. The local morning shoppers are gone. The canang and produce vendors slowly give way to the oleh-oleh sellers. The light becomes more harsh. The colours begin to fill-in and show off their vibrancy. And, the shadows plays tug-of-war with rays of sunlight. To top it all off, transistion time is when you will see the most things ever balanced on a human head in the world.

Transition time might sound boring at first. But, it’s anything but boring for a street photographer.
