On Saturday morning we made our usual pilgrimage to the fish market at Jimbaran. Little did any of us know that a few hours later a Lion Air plane was going to crash into the sea, just a few 100 metres from where all of these photographs were taken. Mercifully there were no fatalities but it sent shock waves around the island and panic into my heart as just that very morning I had booked tickets for a Lion Air flight from Jogja to Denpasar for this Thursday evening.
As we left Bali yesterday for our flight back to Jakarta, they were still trying to lift the remains of the plane out of the water, it’s not really what you want to see as you are taking off on the first of 4 flights this week!
My lovely blogging mate Yvonne made encouraging noises about the photos that I took for my Beautiful People post and suggested that I maybe make it a regular feature on here. Just in case my plane does fall out of the sky this week, I’m going to slot in another portrait post. Hopefully it won’t be my last.
My thoughts go out to all of those who were on the fated Lion Air plane and I hope that those who were injured and in hospital, are making a speedy recovery.
