Urban Juxtaposition #14



Actually this is not a juxtaposition of an urban objects, but it still a juxtaposition happened in urban environment.

I was scouting for location to shot Pasupati (again). Walking down alleys in Kampung Pulo, lost direction in labyrinth, and finally arrive at this place. Boys were playing football on the streets. This is a common scene we could find in many Indonesian city. Children living in alleys tend to treat the streets as their playground. Football, or other traditional game, played right on the streets. When somebody with motorcycle pass, they step aside a little to give enough room for the passer by, and then continue the game.

I spent few minutes here, because I'm interested on the potential to get an action shot. Out of my expectation, the boy standing on the side wall suddenly make such a posture, a kind of humorous one in relation to the scene on the background. I snap it instantly.
