Ketika masuk masjid untuk sholat duhur, saya melihat seseorang sedang membaca alquran di samping pintu yang berornamen… backlit dari pintu menerangi punggung dan qur’an quite nice… tapi ada dilema, kalau object di taruh di tengah akan banyak ruang hitam di depannya, akhirnya saya lebih mementingkan pintunya.. :)

Ketika sedang jalan2 pakai land rover, sekilas saya melihat di depan ada bapak tertidur pulas di gerbaknya.. sayapun berhenti dan mengambil gambar ini… meteran menggunakan sunny 16… Tulisan sabar yaa (be patient please)… menambah makna dari gambar ini…

Love birds

Karimun Jawa… very romantic place when you are in love, this is staged, actually they are just friends, and I asked them to act like two lovers… turns out quite nice pict… I take the picture using both digital and film… and here is the film version

Same as above, but different angle and different meter setting… I tried to add the tree but not sure if it is better than the above pict

This is a personal assignment, I want to take a picture of a person as close as possible with 50mm lens… When I was in Karimun Java, this old man is one of the first arrive in this little island… and he told me the history of Karimun Java, I took this pict when he talking about the sad part of the story and this is so far is the best in the roll

There is no fast food in karimun java, and here is the local buy their simple breakfast… a rice pudding and coconut juice or syrup, they chat while enjoying their breakfast.. a simple life, simple breakfast

This is how the social life in Karimun jawa, simple bench, kids and endless chat is simple recipe for good social life…

Jakarta Marathon 2013, I was too late to take picture of the marathon starts and too late to take picture of the hardcore runner, but I saw this… the two of the officials are dancing …  if only I took it a bit left and earlier… I will probably get a better picture of dancer and a runner…

I think they are among the last runner, they run in couple, not too hurry, just enjoy running… at this point they have run about 21km

Personal assignment : As close as possible

My personal assignment; trying to get as close as possible to the object (completely stranger), and this are two results:

Dove race trainer

Dove race is a sport (if we can call it sport) that some of Jakartans enjoy it.. As in any sports, we need to train the dove and pick the best for competition.. I saw this man releasing two birds.. I stop and approach him closest possible and take this shot…

Checking Blackberry

When I had lunch in, all tables are full and I ask permission to join this group.. interestingly this group is chefs from nearby restaurant. they chat and checking and show messages from their Blackberry. I took my camera out and shot this picture.. no permission no apology… and continue chatting with them as if I did not do anything…

Just a tip when we do shot close up to strangers… chat with them either after or before, to show  that you are normal, not just a  weirdo…

Day Dreaming

Day Dreaming

Oh my…. two women sitting on top of vegetables on their way to wet market to sell their produce… they look weary, sleepy and bored… hope that they arrived safely

What I like, all the three men here are focusing in the chessboard… it shows the man (without shirt) is thinking hard …  one of the attempt to take close picture of the person, other picts are as follows
