The people of Padang

20130719_barkerfoto_5605I was up in Northern Sumarta, Indonesia for a few months this year.  It was an amazing experience.  I had a job shooting the guests surfing, on a Australian boat for 2 weeks.  Before setting a sail I posted up in this tiny Muslim town, so naturally I walked around with my camera.  The kids were thrilled to see me, and were super into me taking there picture.  In fact they couldn't get enough.  Before long we were singing songs and counting in English and Indonesian.  It was a great day.
