Weekly Photo Challenge On The Way – The Heart Warmer


For this week’s photo challenge, Michelle asked us to share interesting photos we saw on the way to our destination. Something stunning others might have missed or unexpected beauty in a mundane moment.

I select 3 photos, perhaps those are not stunning or beautiful, but those have something different. I classify those photos as the heart-warmer because I had a mixed feeling when taking those photos. Amazed to the acrobatic style that made me smile, touched for struggling life, a little bit afraid for the dangerous things they did, and so on. But I believe one thing that summarizes the photos; they did for living better life.

I took the first photo on the way to Phnom Penh airport. I was amazed to the acrobatic style they did. Although it’s dangerous, but I believe they were in rush to prepare their kiosk. They did not want to miss any chance to get more customers in the morning. Perhaps they believe Benjamin Franklin’s quote, the early morning has gold in its mouth.

About the second photo, I took this photo on the way to Deles, a place in the foot of Mt. Merapi. It was unusual for me seeing a female farmer sitting on high hay on a motorbike. Actually I was amazed to the brave farmer. But again, I was touched when I passed over them. I saw a tired but sincere faces of a mother and perhaps her son who rode the motorbike…

Keep the togetherness in good and bad times

And last but not least, I took the third photo on the way to Jogjakarta during ‘Mudik’ time, the time for going back to the family in the hometowns, usually for celebrating Idul Fitri, the end of fasting month of Ramadhan. They rode on a motorbike – sometimes full with gifts for the families at home-, through the dangers on roads in several days and nights. And from this picture we can see that they walked and pushed the bike together because of its flat tire. They kept their togetherness for the quality time of a family, in bad and happy time…

  1. You do such a great job for this challenge, Mbak :)). My heart get warmed when seeing those pictures, too. They struggle with all they can just to make sure that they and their family get enough food for a day. They do all the things they can just to continue their lives. What a lesson that we could learn from those photos! Thank you for sharing :)).
