Street Photography: Club Pinguin of The Road Side
I took this photograph on a back road that connects Bandung and its suburban town of Cimahi a few days ago. I was at first a bit surprised to see that a street vendor would offer these colorful inflatable dolls in a relatively small rural road like this. Then, on a second thought, I began to see that perhaps he saw a business opportunity in motorists passing the this road to avoid the traffic in the main roads.
Anyway, photographically speaking, bright colors are an eye stopper. The colors of these dolls against the surrounding green paddy fields and trees had me instinctively stop my car, got out, and took a few shots. One of them, I'm sharing with you today.
