Or is it?
When selecting my Image of the Week, I look for photographs or paintings which have a pictorial resonance in the sense that there’s a need to linger. Some of my choices point to an exhibition currently on, or make you blink and look twice, or are a landscape which transports one away from the cloistered existence we find ourselves in and make a good screen ‘wallpaper’.
Others have a personal resonance with me, being connected to my activities, both past and present. Jakartass has always been about duality with my ‘Home Thoughts From Abroad’ and ‘Alien Thoughts From Home’. The two images I present here are in the latter category. Taken this past week from my lifetime daily read, UK’s Guardian newspaper, they depict two recent events here in Indonesia. You decide which one has more resonance for you.
