It was by coincidence that we saw this lone hut along the coast line of Ternate, Indonesia. We pulled our vehicle to the side, went across the road to find a good spot to photograph it. Space available was really narrow, may be just wide enough for us to place our tripod. Just when I thought I was ready to start my trigger, wife shouted "red ants". As we stepped back, we found ourselves attacked by tens of red ants. Red ants can be very toxic and you wouldn't like it. Fortunately none of us were having any trouble so the excitement to shoot this lone hut continued.
As I was editing this photo, it gave me a sense of loneliness. It's much like the current situation, the lockdown as a result of Covid-19. Most of us are confined to our own home. The world out there is having turmoil but inside our little house, no matte how small or simple it is, it's the safest place to be. Skies out there may still be groomy but the storm shall surely pass and we will see blue skies again!
