Long Walk Home by Ashlee Betteridge

Another request, but this time from a photographer who is based in Australia. Ashlee Betteridge let me select my favourite image from her Flickr site, which included ‘Long Walk Home’ from her time spent in Indonesia. It is a photograph of a boy walking home from school in the farmlands around Bukittinggi, West Sumatra.

To suit such a wonderfully taken shot I wanted to find something to suit the pace of the boy walking home. The smoke in the background also reminded me of locomotion (no, not Kylie Minogue). I found ‘Lost In My Mind’ by The Head And The Heart, who are an exciting band from Seattle to keep an eye on. The song matches both aspects I was looking for; part of the song even sounds like a train (the “woo-ooh’s” to use a technical term)! Lots of links for you to click on below, because both artists deserve your time and attention…
