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.

A Stage for Shadow Play
A stage for an epic play of shadows–is what the pasar brings you just after the early morning rush. This is when the sun finally makes its way above the tops of Ubud’s buildings. If you chase harsh light, then wait for it. You’ll be rewarded.

Street (Dog) Photography
This lead photo is my humble homage to the master street photographer Elliott Erwitt. Learn about Erwitt’s dog street photography here.
This photo of a Bali Dog at Pasar Ubud and four more images are now up on the I love Bali Dogs gallery.

Bali Street Photographer Photos Featured
on Don’t Take Pictures’ Seeing Red Gallery
Late last year/early this year (2018/2019), three photographs from Bali Street Photographer were exhibited by Don’t Take Pictures. I’ve been following Don’t Take Pictures for years. So, being featured in one of their exhibits is a huge honour. Especially since the team over there is held in high esteem and continually curates impeccable photography work in print and digital media.
Why Don’t Take Pictures?
Don’t Take Pictures’ philosophy compliments Bali Street Photographer’s mission. The name itself is provocative and oxymoronic at the same time (given the context). So, what’s the meaning behind Don’t Take Pictures?
The title, Don’t Take Pictures, references the language of modern photography. Over the years, the term “taking pictures” has begun to be replaced with “making photographs.” The change signifies a distinction between the widespread use of cameras in the modern world and the more systematic, thoughtful process of creating photographic art. At Don’t Take Pictures, we strive to celebrate the creativity involved with the making of photographs. ~Don’t Take Pictures
Here’s Bali Street Photographer’s mission statement (from the About page).
To see rather than look. To create rather than take. To explore rather than visit. To connect rather than separate. ~Bali Street Photographer
