There are little to none pedestrian way here, like for real. The ones that available are very tight, and packed with illegal vendors, thus make walking here quite a hellish experience. Not to mention some foul-mouthed fellas and such.
Yeah, Jakarta is a bit difficult to photograph on the streets. But you could shoot in the malls or wherever. There’s a lot of interesting images you could make all over the city. A friend of mine shoots in Jakarta a lot, maybe this can be of some resource to you. https://www.flickr.com/photos/toroelmar
