One minute in: Bali, Ubud
Welcome to my series “One minute” in which I give you a short burst of insight into a particular spot.
This is my first installment and the one that started me on this small side-project. It all happened something like this:
One of the kids had to go to the toilet again (dont even start me on this one), so Mr.Blab, the toilet guy, took the girls (oh, so it must have been one of the girls) into a restaurant we were passing by. And I waited with a sleeping Dod on my back. And waited. And looked around the little shops around. And waited. Then squatted on the street, because I was getting tired. And then I started snapping, just like that, out of boredom. Then I thought it might be fun to make a time-lapse series of shots. And then I did one in Singapore, and in KL. They were a bit better, but this is the original and only, so welcome to a minute in front of Monkey Forest in Ubud.
Love the idea of it…Also love your new header…beautiful
I love this! It gives you a real insight as to the life there. Can’t wait to see the next ones.
I also remember sitting outside the monkey forest watching the world go by – far from peaceful and truly fascinating!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
I want to see more ‘one minutes’ it makes me feel like I’m there!
Excellent! You are all in for the fun. I was not sure if anyone will like this idea, but now I am even more hyped up to make it interesting.
This is a great idea!
I was a little alarmed at the sight of the little kids on those bikes without helmets – but I know that its probably just becasue of the american “rules” that that been hardwired into my brain. Have you seen a lot of things like that in your travels so far? “Rules” or unspoken social rules that are different than where you are from?
Beth, you get used to it a bit, when its all around you, but yes, safety precautions are quite different in this part of Asia.
We had the kids on the scooter without a helmet too, but dont tell anyone and dont remind me in the future ;)
haha–my hubby tends to be the ‘toilet guy’ most of the time too! and it seems that some days, you just spend your time from toilet to toilet!!! interesting idea about the time-lapse photos!
