I. Am. Back. This week is not actually the week 29, in fact, this week is the 33rd week of the year. I am so behind, and so backed up on my posts. I need to play catch up now, after weeks of being semi-paralysed due to the computer drama, which had left me in the dark these past weeks. Bear with me, as I will post several weeks of portraits this week just so I can get back to correctly post my weekly portrait […]
This really late post of week 28 brought to you by my trusty iPhone, and no thanks to my broken MacBookPro, who practically have paralyzed a big chunk of my life these past few days (and sadly for the next few days as well). Now let me go back to my dark corner and sulk. Probably take photos in the dark and not download it anywhere… Wishing you and your computer a good health.
Indonesia Presidential Election 2014 is just around the corner. Literally. On the 5th of July, Indonesians in Canberra will head to our embassy to cast our vote, to use our right to choose our president (and vice president) for the next five years; ahead from people in Indonesia, who will vote on the 9th of July. This blog is not a political blog, it never is. It is still a photoblog, but for this week’s portrait project, I’m happy to dedicate […]
My precious hearts. I ‘asked’ these three to drop everything and to stay together in one spot for an impromptu after dinner photo shoot. I just remember I don’t have a picture of them together, and I would like to have one. One good one. Well, dog had nothing in particular that he had to do, so that was kinda interesting how bored he looked, couldn’t tell what his problem was. My kids, on the other hand, was a different matter. There were […]
“If he thought at all, but I don’t believe he ever thought, it was that he and his shadow, when brought near each other, would join like drops of water, and when they did not he was appalled. He tried to stick it on with soap from the bathroom, but that also failed.” Peter Pan by James M Barrie I could not help but thinking of Peter Pan and his shadow while watching Ms. 6 (and her shadow) twirling around, […]
Weekend markets would not feel the same nor ‘complete’, for a lack of better word, without background music that’s usually performed live at the same location. The music probably is not what shoppers are coming to these markets for, but the performance from the local talents certainly adds a charm to the treasure hunting experience. It’s like having your own soundtrack, a bargain-hunting soundtrack. How charming. Location: Rozelle Market, Sydney
If someone asks me at the end of my portrait project, who is the most impressive and memorable person that I have taken photograph of this year, this special lady, Butet Manurung, would be one of my top five. If you meet Butet in person without knowing her story, it would be hard to imagine the huge foot-prints of goodness that this pint-size lady has left in her trail. She is a force to be reckoned with. She has tracked through […]
