The Ancient Yogyakarta

I’ve never heard of this place before a friend of mine, whom an avid traveller and in love with all the ancient and historical places, Miss Ah Lin, told me so. She suggested that we should visit this city of tolerance. Therefore, 8 of us, head to the ancient city of Indonesia, Yogyakarta!

A short trip from 24th – 27th Oct 2012, it’s my very first visit to Indonesia. Everything seems to be overwhelming to me. The food, the places, the people, the culture, the language (even though I speak Melayu, but something is different from Bahasa Indonesia with our Bahasa Malaysia), the dim light, the street graffiti, the historical monument and everything else. It’s a beautiful town.

We went to Borobudur Temple, Prambanan, Merapi Volcano, Gua Pindul, stroll along at night at Malioboro street and few other city attractions. To me, nothing beats Borobudur in Yogyakarta. We are deeply regretted that we doesn’t wake up earlier to watch the sunrise at Borobudur. Anyways, I had fun in this trip with my bunch of friends and some new friends. 🙂 Oh, and in order to respect the temple, we should avoid short sleeves and shorts. They do provided some “kain batik” on the entrance anyway.

Pictures taken by LC-Wide, LC-A, Fisheye Baby 110 and Canon AE-1. I basically wasted the 2 rolls I shoot using Canon AE-1 in this trip due to the wrong filter and the light that leaks the wrong way. Sigh.

Till then, see you again soon, Indonesia!

My Tungsten Affair (Film)

The calm after the storm, that’s how I feel today. It’s particularly hot today, perhaps it’s because of the pouring Thursday whole day yesterday. Anyways, here’s the series of my work using the amazing Tungsten film. The hot weather now remind me of the wonderful scene captured by the Tungsten film.

What the hell is Tungsten film? It’s a super fine grain film with ISO 64. You may achieve a very purplish and sometimes pink or blue(?!!)  when you cross-processing the Tungsten film. And for more accurate explanations about the film, please check out this link.

I tried one roll on the expired Fuji T64 Tungsten (35mm, 64ISO) once before and it’s very very greenish! It’s not up to my liking and since then I never tried another roll. But, it’s rather a different story for Lomography x Tungsten film! I amaze by the beautiful shades of purple and pink. It’s rather sweet and work really awesome under the bright sunlight with LC-A or LC-Wide under ISO100. But sad case, it’s not producing anymore, and that means this gem will distinct anytime soon. 😦

Well, what remains, still beautiful. Here’s my Tungsten affair and cheers to the sweet shades of purple!

A Beautiful Day at Sekinchan

It’s been a long long while since the last outing with a bunch of photo enthusiasm, and it’s great to be able to go places with a group of people who are in different industry but share almost the same interest and beliefs in photography. We went to this beautiful small town; Sekinchan which located nearby Kuala Selangor and Sabak Bernam. It took about 1 hour plus to reach this place from the place I stay. We went there during harvesting season (June, 2013) and we are expecting golden brown dried paddy instead of the green one. We drive along and finally saw some haystack which is really gorgeous. 🙂

Beautiful weather, beautiful people. I miss going out on photo-outing. 🙂 Let’s go out and shoot, shall we?
