Two Girls and a Selfie

Two Girls and a Selfie, Fatahillah Square, Jakarta, Java, Indonesia

In a place of otherness
I revel  in the sameness
That is two girls taking selfies
On a sunny Sunday afternoon in the park
Accompanied by  song and food, and laughter and play

Taken during travels, 2022

Our destination had been the Jakarta History Museum but walked into a Sunday fete in the park adjoining it. People were renting brightly coloured bicycles and the girls and women were provided with wide-brimmed sun hats of matching colours. There was a live band, and some food stalls, somewhere nearby a bubble machine. I don’t know what the event was celebrating, or whether this was a regular Sunday thing. No matter. Everyone was having a great time.
