Boy Beating The Pot Like A Drum

On the ground with the overturned pot, the boy was banging the pot like a drum

As I walked down the road in Jakarta, looking at the barracks along the river, I couldn't tell if they were houses, warehouses, or storage places for junk. There were miscellaneous items scattered under the roof as I passed by. There are buckets and pots and pans in plain view, making it difficult for passersby to determine whether they are being stored for use someday, or whether they are abandoned because they will never be used again.

What's more. If a boy is banging rhythmically on the ground with a stick of some sort, you can't really tell the difference anymore. The expression on the boy's face as he was happily banging on it looks like he's playing with a pot that was really meant to be cooked and used as a drum as a prank, or as if he's reusing a wasteful pot that no one is using as a drum.

The only thing I can say for sure is that the boy seemed to be having a great time banging on the back of the pot. When I pointed my camera at him, he gave me a look that said, "How do you feel about mu drumming?" In Jakarta, I have also seen other boys playing drums on the street. Maybe drumming is common here.
