people that impress me (not exhaustive)

i'd like to write a story about each and every of the persons i've put up here. maybe, one day, i'll combine them all into a novel.

it helps to have heroes in life. it also helps to understand they are people like you and me.

a man and his family in flores, indonesia, trying to learn to read

a man in new york, USA, being chased away from a busy street, after producing music with the material on the ground - and the police man who has to do his duty

two boys in the water in northern luzon, philippines

two girls, carrying stones from a quarry, in bali, indonesia, asking for some coins to have their picture taken

two monks in a temple in bangkok, thailand, discussing

women on a street in bali, indonesia, carrying food to the temple every day for consecration

a group of mixed malaysians chinese, thai and indonesians in a diving resort on pulau sipadan, malaysia, greeting customers

two children in the entrance of an ancient temple in bali, indonesia

a woman, cooking on a market place in ibud, bali, indonesia

a woman, serving guests in the restaurant of her family in kuala lumpur, malaysia

a man, cooking an egg in the steam of a volcano on bali, indonesia

a woman, selling fruits on a local market in nakorn pathom, thailand (for less than 3 cent a pound)

two tired divers, waiting to be transported to the main land on pulau redang, malaysia

an old dancing couple on a parking lot in kuala lumpur, malaysia

a seamen on a speed boat at the malaysian coast

a girl, playing in a pool in kuala lumpur, malaysia

two women on a boat at the coast of borneo, malaysia

What fantastic pictures! I particularly like the exposure of the number 2. Lovely!
Now, I mean it! I must mean it!!! Argh ok. I like the last one very very much. Very romantic.
I mean that though. OH merde I got lost...

Some beautiful and interesting photos. The last one is "other-worldly"

When I'm a rich, I'll assign you an allowance so that you can publish that novel of yours. :)

Wow, i've just woken up on Sunday morning and now I feel like I have travelled around the world. Lovely photos. The colours in the last one are amazing, they remind me of dreams i've had.

A great set, provoking thought and feeling. and the last picture gives me some idea (maybe?) of how you *see*.

I'm thinking that you left there a part of you - a part of your soul maybe. why don't you live there and write novels?

Nice thought. When I go to London I get exhausted looking at all the people rushing past. It's exhilarating for a while but I can't look at them and not wonder... about their stories. Thought provoking you are.

I imagine these people impress you because they live and not just simply exist. They just let themselves drift with the flow of life accepting it as it is. And as simple as it sounds, for many people it is hard to atchieve. This post tells a lot about you as I beleive that there are dominating thoughts in our minds that are magnetized and these attract people or attracted to people which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts, or with other words, the fact these people impress you shows your qualities too. We all need heroes to know how far we can go. I`d love to read that novel one day. Without maybe:-)

Everyone has a story. Sometimes people overlook this fact since there are so may people. But these tell a little bit about each person.
