Komodo Village was a fun little stopover on the way to Komodo National Park. It was a real village that people lived in. Despite the scores of tourists passing through every day, life went on here pretty much as it always has.
We stopped in the middle of the day, while the sun was at its peak. It was blazing hot, and the bright light made photography difficult.
Normally a polarizing filter can be used to compensate for the bright sun. But I’m afraid to use mine, because every time I do, it gets stuck to my lens. Then I have to find an Ace Hardware, where the helpful hardware man lets me borrow their vice. So far I’ve tracked down Ace Hardwares in Montana, Manila, and Bali.
So here are my unfiltered photos of Komodo Village.
