Calendar Contest / by Debra Wallace

The Indonesian Heritage Society publishes a calendar every year.  The theme for the 2016 Calendar is Street Life Urban and Rural.  Two of my images were selected.  

High Hopes  This  first image was taken in Jakarta, Indonesia on October 20, 2014 - Inauguration Day - during the first ever inaugural street parade.  The high hopes for Indonesia's new president, Joko Widodo called "Jokowi", was evident by the enthusiasm and determinaton on people's faces.

Morning Walk This second image was taken in the western part of the island of Java in an Outer Baduy village .  The Baduy people have limited contact with the outside world.  In the early morning this woman came across a bamboo bridge on her way to a neighboring village with rice barns bordering her path.  You can see additional images of the Baduy area in the Indonesia - Banten gallery
