Tanah Lot – the most photographed location in Bali – is an ancient temple situated on an large rock just off the shore of Tabanan. In addition to being a tourist trap, the temple also is a pilgrimage location for thousands of locals who flock to the site every day. This leads to one of the most shocking scenes I have encountered in my travels: the narrow street filled with shops and street vendors all packed in like sardines leading up to the temple.
Photographer: Greg Goodman ( San Francisco, CA, USA)
Greg Goodman’s passion for travel and photography is deeply rooted in early-childhood family vacations, when his parents gave him a 110mm film camera to keep him entertained. Growing up in New York City continues to influence Greg’s choice of subject matter, as he is particularly drawn to cityscapes, buildings, bridges, transportation methods, decay, manmade objects and nature’s interaction with humanity.
In addition to his photographic work being featured in numerous exhibitions, events and publications, Greg frequently updates the digital magazine of his life – Adventures of a GoodMan .com – with stories, photographs, travel journals and videos from numerous backpacking trips abroad…and life’s adventures at home.
