Just Not Sure of You

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Jennifer Barnaby

I came across this young boy and his older brother dressed for a cremation precession on a remote road in Bali, Indonesia. While his older bother enjoyed posing for the camera and smiled and laughed while I snapped away, his younger brother seemed very unsure and shy of my presence. To me, the wonderful expression this young boy has on his face epitomizes how, at times, many complicated feelings, emotions and actions can arise when travelers and locals meet spontaneously. This photo beautifully captures fear, shyness and distrust in the innocence and honesty of a small boy's face.

Location: Bali, Indonesia
