14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Everyday Journey

I was at Manus island when I saw that man on the boat. Before he sail, I talk to him and have a little chitchat. I ask him "hey it's already late why do you still need to go there at the sea?" And he replied "brother, I have 5 kids and my wife with me. They need to eat everyday, they have a plenty basic needs too." That time I realized this is his "everyday journey" in life. That answered the question "what is your purpose for living?" Moreover, he sailed and I immediately climb the roof. Luckily I had my Canon 6D but with 50mm 1.8 lens only. Took the shoot with 1/100, f8.0 and ISO 400. Later on try a little color adjustment in Lightroom. Thanks!
