Friday Lens Affair #12


Nusa Offerings. Bali, Nusa Lembongan

This week I have a pleasure to feature a truly great photograph of Gods offerings taken in Nusa Lembongan in Bali by Lucy Dodsworth from On the Luce Travel Blog. Follow Lucy on Twitter and Facebook.

Lucy says: After 20+ years of travelling I set up On the Luce to share some of my favourite places, photos, travel tales and tips to give inspiration to other independent travellers. Who might not be in the position to travel long term but want to make the most of their travel time, and anyone else who’s trying to combine a love of travel with work, love, friends and everyday life.

I have chosen this picture for many reasons. First of all because I like minimalistic pictures on which background is just a background. Because even direct pictures are great sometimes and because I’m really fixated about visiting Bali. Maybe it is a cliche and very touristy place but I would love to be able to make my own mind about it. Nusa Lembongan seems like a perfect place to start discovering Bali.

Picture Story: Nusa Lembongan Offerings, Bali

You can’t go anywhere in Bali without seeing canang sari.These little baskets of woven leaves, filled with flowers, rice and incense sticks, are made as offerings for the gods.

They are piled up outside shrines and temples, and put in doorways to keep the evil spirits out.And whether you’re out in a rural village or in a bustling city, the spirit world is still an important part of Balinese life.

In our guesthouse on the island of Nusa Lembongan, the owner’s wife would come around twice a day and leave one outside our room. They were some of the prettiest I’d seen, with neatly woven baskets piled with colourful rice and flower petals.
