Man And Grandchild Watching The Waterway

Shot in the city of Jakarta, Indonesia.

I was walking around the city of Jakarta. The single word 'Jakarta' covers some cities. Indonesia's largest city is a megacity with a metropolitan population of more than 30 million, consisting of Central Jakarta, South Jakarta, West Jakarta, East Jakarta, and North Jakarta. In fact, when you simply say Jakarta, it is often not a city, but a Special Capital Region of Jakarta consisting of five cities. Well, it's kind of like the 23 wards of Tokyo.

It was West Jakarta City that I was walking at this time. Walking just on the border of what seemed to be a commercial and residential area separated by a waterway, there were many factories and shops on the side of the road, but all of them were closed because it was Sunday. Though Indonesia is the most Muslim country in the world, the holiday seems to be a Sunday, not a Friday, as in Western countries in Christian nations.

I walked silently down the deserted road. Then I saw a young girl and an old man along the waterway. They lined up nicely and peered into the waterway. Both of them were staring so hard to the right that they didn't notice that I was standing behind them and holding the camera. There must be something flowing in that I am very concerned about.
