Pak Gulem at work

Splashed

Here is another shot I took of the dancers at the Klungkung waterfall. We have seen many subjects taken at this waterfall including pre-wedding shots (in fact I have one of these too – more of that later) but there are very few of Balinese dancers let along of them being splashed with water.

Bali, here I come!

It has been more than a year since my last trip there and it is a nice feeling knowing that I will be back to one of my favourite photography hunting grounds in a couple of days. A group of like-minded, 'crazy' and fun-loving photographers will be following me this time. Looking at the itinerary […]
