I was walking through the street in Central Jakarta, one of the five cities that make up the Special Capital Region of Jakarta. While walking, I often saw the entrance to the alley. It looked fun to walk down the cluttered alley when I looked inside. But I couldn't tell just by standing at the entrance if the alleyway led somewhere or if it only led to someone's house. As I like to walk through the alley, I have a hard time deciding whether it is safe or not to invade it.
This photo was also the entrance to such an unidentified alley. At the far end of the alley, I could see laundry hanging out to dry and miscellaneous items were placed by the entrance. As I entered, it looked like fun. But there was a man standing there. The man standing in the doorway, holding a piece of wood that had been placed aside, pondering. Maybe he was trying to do some bricolage. Bricolage is the process of gathering what is available on the spot to create something new.
In any case, standing solemnly at the entrance, it was difficult for a passerby to enter. I only took a photo of the man and continued down the main street to the next alley.
