Photographer's Note

This guy was the bakso man that walked up and down my street when I was living in Yogyakarta. Bakso are Indonesian meatballs in a noodle soup. It cost 1500rp (USD $0.15) a bowl.

Bakso carts and assorted other street food (called Kaki-lima, or 5 feet for the 3 "feet" of the kart and 2 of the man) are always passing by, each with their own distinctive calls to alert the hungry. They were great because there was an assortment (from bakso to dim sum to sate to ice drinks) and they were around from early morning to past midnight.


I selected the man, and slightly lightened the background. I increased contrast with curves and then finally added some noise for extra grittiness.
