A series of photos of a horseman, his horse and his family.
Published:
I went to Mt Bromo in Java, Indonesia on 3 occassions and on two of those I met a Horseman by the name of Mr Satumat. We took a walk, had a drink and chatted about life. Although I was supposed to ride his horse from Cemoro Lawang to Bromo, I never mounted it because I was so lost in the conversation and shooting of pictures. The following pictures serve to illustrate the horseman's loved ones (including his horse) and their simple life. 
 
With whatever little Bahasa Indonesia (the national language of Indonesia) I knew I managed to get him to pose for a few pictures. I hope you like them.
