Photographer's Note

It's planting season and just a bit of fun upload today, not sure how well it will be received and I don't mean to offend anyone.

A shot I just couldn't resist though, of wet paddy field in the outskirt of Solo, Central Java taken on a particularly beautiful morning. I had been watching these women folk from some distance for quite a while, patiently waiting for these five to synchronize in unison before firing the shutter.

Planting rice indeed is a hard work and most is done manually and it is back-breaking task spending over eight hours daily in the fields under the scorching sun.

A slice of rural daily life activity I love to observe and shoot which I find extremely captivating how they interact with their environments as they provide a colourful visual aspect. They are a true gift which also allows a story to be formed in viewer's mind......
