He is one of the dockworkers in Kusamba, Bali.
I trailed behind him the moment
I caught a glimpse of his powerful stare.
Hoping that he wasn’t as antagonistic as he looked,
I eventually mustered enough guts
to point my camera at his direction.
He smiled back and I replied with a few more clicks.
His expression changed as I waited for that right moment.
I guessed it was all worth the wait (and risk).
