Urban Shape #5




I found this place earlier this year and I immediately recognized its similarities with HCB's shot in Hyeres, 1932. Nice place in Kebon Bibit street, near Pasupati. I've came back here several times to make a shot but no people around to breathe a life into the scene. That day, with full of hope I came back again and found those boys playing with motorcycle. They were very young, around 11-13 years old. Even their leg still too short to step the ground while sit on the saddle. Funny..

I stay several minutes watching them until that boy turn the motorcycle to the left, in very similar scene that HCB took 82 years ago. Bang! I got it. Well, this is not perfect geometry like HCB did. I'll come back to this place again to hunt for more pictures.
