Photohunters: Heavy



Yogyakarta

I respect hardworking people a lot. This Indonesian woman..just like millions all over the world..woke up very early to get to the market carrying her heavy packages on her old bicycle. She reminds me of my grandma who witnessed the raising sun during her whole life under similar circumstances.

napaboaniya said...

These are the people that earns my respect. Hardworking and down to earth.

I'm pretty sure I can't balance myself on that bike let alone cycle it!

Great picture, great message. We in the developed world are becoming a little too distanced from what work really can mean to other people.

Karina said...

Wow, that's a great shot. Makes mine seem sort of frivolous! ;-)

Carin said...

Those bags are even heavier than the ones I took a picture off for this photo hunt. And I guess her bike is much older. Wonder how it held all that shopping.
Nice shot!

Poor lady she only got the bike to carry all those stuff she have. Great choice. Happy weekend!
