Royal Palace

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 28 May 2012 in Cityscape & Urban.

That's it across the street. The royal family still live there. Except for their private part of the compound, visitors are free to wander around. The man in the foreground is holding a taxi sign. Every few feet, especially along Monkey Forest Road, people are trying to sell you a taxi ride.

The street to the left of the frame is JL Suweta which heads north to Waka Di Ume.

Beautiful Bali

This gives a good picture of rhythm of life.

I like this motion blur of the car and the man so quiet in the middle of the street, and strong too with his Taxi board in hand. Real life scene.

The first thing that struck me was the contrast between the old beautiful palace and the modern life on the streets! As if something went wrong in the time machine ;) Beautiful street shot!

It is a great picture and the placement of the taxie man adds life to the scene.

Excellent street shot! The guy holding the taxi sign is perfectly placed in the frame and the motion of the car going by him is just perfect. Well done, Steve!
