BARELANG BRIDGE

I went down to one of the six bridges that connects the islands of Batam, they are collectively called the Barelang bridge. Iā€™m at the closest one connected to main Batam island of Indonesia.

THREE BOYS

I took many shots of the bridge, of different point of views and different height levels, but was still looking out to capture something unique, until I walk down to the rock sturdy pillar under the bridge, and its where I met the three boys, they are students, rode in on motorcycles, I chatted with them, and learned they were doing photography here too, one young photographer, two friends as his models. they were pleased to see a foreigner like me in this remote part of the place, especially the young photographer, his wide eyes filled with enthuse seeing a fellow photographer.

They started taking pictures, the young photographer clicked away like a pro, his models were posing, jumping, running, a whale of a time they really had. I continued with my search for a desired composition.

ALL COME TOGETHER

After walking a distant away from the bridge with most of the time walking backward to review the scene of the bridge, those 3 boys that were still under the bridge gathered close, perhaps to look at their shots in their camera LCD, and that's when the magic happened...

The scene before me took a poetic turn, it appeared surreal, like a story book cover which baffled me a bit, maybe it is the proximity of the boys to the solid pillar, or their standing posture...everything was in the right place, instinctively, I froze that unique moment, a few seconds after, the boys were all over the place, posing, jumping, running while the young photographer aimed...

I left the place, looking forward to work on this shot, I knew I'd nailed a winner.

One regret, I should have taken a selfie with them, especially that wide eye young photographer :)
