Photographer's Note

Taken near the central train station in Jakarta. It was one of those outdoor police terminals. I wonder if they would have allowed the photo if a native Indonesian had asked for it. Almost all Indonesians were honored that a Bule would ask for their photo. Sometimes police insisted I take their picture - very different from most countries.

Details of this shot I didn't want to crop: the "first-aid" kit on the far left, the radio, the map, the 'diplomas'. Just another day at the office.

And after reading the last note, the name on his uniform, just a little wink there...
