Seno Ahmad sent us a beautiful shot of a merchant ship in the Sunda Kelapa Harbor in Jakarta:
Sadikin Gani offers various interpretations of the theme transport, starting with this great action shot:
More shoes, but this time on the soccer pitch:
A more traditional image displays becak, the trusted means of transportation in many Asian countries:
And his final entry is aptly titled ‘Motorcycles vs. Cars’:
Yekaterina Gaisenok also chose to send in multiple photos. And we are glad she did! This first image shows people on their way to work, while other have no choice but stay behind:
Her second entry shows a more cheerful image. Just Married, in Kota Tua, Jakarta:
Yekaterina also depicts the congestion in Jakarta, near Sudirman, Jakarta:
Her last photo shows the comical (yet confusing) road signage in Jakarta:
The next photograph, by Peter Lin Carillo, shows great detail in a traditional Indonesian outrigger ready for a beach launch in Tanjung Lesung:
Rini Kusumawati makes the worn down boat of a fuel supplier in Tarakan, East Kalimantan look picturesque:
Our last contender, Paksi Sandang Prabowo, sent in 2 images from Yogyakarta. The first one depicts the chaos and panic that ensued when the Merapi volcano erupted. An ambulance is trying to get through, but as people are gathering on the streets, they block its way:
His second image reveals what the city looked like after the eruption. The streets, trees and homes are covered in a thick layer of ash:
These images have one thing in common: they revolve around people on the move. On their way to work or home, getting married, stuck in traffic…they show the many sides of life on the road, sometimes funny, often frustrating or even shocking…one thing for sure, people are always underway.
