Urban Juxtaposition #7



Here is Pasupati, one of Bandung's landmark. This photo was taken from Gang Bongkaran, an alley stem from Cihampelas street. I have visualize in my mind, I want to take a picture of everyday life with Pasupati on the background. It tells a story about what is happening around this bridge which most people never know before.

It takes several minutes moving back and forth, left to right until I got the composition right. After then, as always I waited for something interesting happen.

A young family on a motorcycle came by. Husband driving, daughter sit on the front, wife sit on the back. On other occasion we can find the wife holding a baby in her arm, but not this time. Their presence make a strong character to the image. The two boys on the lower right under a shelter add a sense of "neighborhood gathering" that enhance the atmosphere of the whole story.
