Sunrise, sunrise

Hi, i just finished gathering all my will to post something new in my blog well, it really took such a long time, eh?? hehe… so, i captured things that i considered as awesome, not only panoramic things but also, unique things which i had seen lately

Image

Not long ago, i decided to start healthy life by waking early and jog around just to refresh my body and cut some caffeine, cigarette, and other bad thing which i usually consume (well obviously, i am not that ‘bad ass’). Oh By the way, i forgot to inform you guys, My brother just sold me his camera ‘Sony NEX-5N’ with such great price, YAY! 😀 it’s an awesome stuff. So, the photo above was taken because of 2 things that happened lately, hehe. The picture was taken by me from a balcony of my dorm. It was taken at 05.20 AM, after i finished jogging.

What a Sunrise! yeah it’s pretty cool, where the sky is still colored dark-blue and while the sun starts to rise  on the horizon, and starting to emit with shiny yellow light. Well there’s a saying,”We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness”. I felt reborn, gained hope , and i never felt so grateful before by only watching sunrise, and i really thanked God, Alhamdulillah..

At the same time, i also caught this country men fishing behind my dorm. Wow! It was really early and this country men is already fishing to get some food for his family, amazing! but in the same time it also made me think, Life is all about struggling till the end no matter what happened, you have to stand up quick, because the world is cruel and unforgiving. And yet, my iPod shuffled into U2’s ‘Walk On’ wow, for me, it really suits the moment i watched that morning.

I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on – taken from U2’s ‘Walk On’

So, brothers and sisters, i really don’t know how suck your life is but, as the time goes by, many people said that life is getting more sucks than before! Haha.. but like Bono said, “Walk on!” Leave it all behind, no matter what, or how suck it is, you’ve got to leave it behind. See you next time! auf wiedersehen! 🙂

 

 

Rewind your time

Image
 
If Jesus rode in on a camel today
With your cross on his shoulder
Time to take you away
Have you done all you wanted?
Are you happy and warm?
Do you miss someone special
You don’t see anymore?
Have you blood on your hands?
Do you dream of white sands?
Can you sleep well at night?
Have you done all you can?
The place I was born in
Stays crooked and straight
I see innocent blue eyes
Go blind everyday

Rewind your time
Would you change your life
Today?

northern side of jakarta

North Jakarta  is another face of jakarta, which population mainly are midlower-class  sailors and Labors. there are many photo-shoot locations there. Me and my buddies picked just 4-5 sites to hunt. so we picked the Museum Fatahillah, Bank History Museum, Bahari Museum, and finally the Sunda Kelapa port. The photo below taken when we were about to end our adventure

Image

The photo above titled ‘peeking sun’ well it’s because there is sun setting and we could only see a bit of it, simple 😀

another photo-shoot, i call this one as “entering heaven’s gate”. It was an amazing sight, but my camera is not that good so many of the photos went blurry 😦

taken from museum bahari, from left-to-right paul, bintang, fandy. cool pose made from them. i call this  “jobless adventurer” haha well we were not working back  :p

but as the time goes by we hardly meet each other lately because we are busy working, it’s sad really sad

home..

“Home” by Daughtry

I’m staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I’m going to the place where love
And feeling good don’t ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain.Well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
Well I’m going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I’ve not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love remains true.
And I don’t know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,

Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want.
Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
I’m going home.

say (all i need)

hi everybody! this is my 2nd post it has been so long since my 1st post. haha sorry, i’ve been pretty busy lately, you know work, courses, etc. and finally i got time to rest myself a bit, and why not post something new to my wordpress.com site? 🙂

sooo… there are some photographs i wanna share with u guys *pfft.. like i have much follower in this site =))*

there are some photos i took at working sites, or somewhere elses which i’ve gone with my photohunter dudes *awesome times* hehe

well i’m gonna wrap the intro, and here are the photos. ENJOY! 😀

Image

the photo above welcomes me in an implicit way, ‘into the woods’ well i think that’s good for this photo title :D. guys, the photo above i’ve taken when i’m in at work, you might asking yourself, what the hell a metallurgist doing in a freaking jungle? haha.. :)) well you know i am currently working in a project to build a plant and right now the project is in a land acquisitioning stage, and i have to identificate the land.

it’s pretty natural jungle there, u could find beauty green-brown combined scenery there. i may say it’s heaven for some panoramic photographers. not only that, the traditional habit and culture there are  still original, authentic and not very much contaminated with the world outside 😀

my second photo taken is entitled ‘ nature’s scratch ‘ well it’s only because the photo mainly focus on the tree’s derma which looks like a many scratches made on its derma

my 3rd photo taken from a park near the dorm i used to stay, entitled ‘ bee’s ass ‘ well i think it’s a pretty picture but i don’t have any delicate fancy name, so i just make it simple and plain ‘ bee’s ass ‘, it is literally describes the photo.. hehehe :p

enough with the pictures taken from the project’s site let’s move our ass to the photohunt session with my college friends, which are richard, paul, fandy, and bintang suryo. well actually there are many places i’ve gone with these guys but in this post i’m going to post the trip where we had gone to monas, prasasti museum, and national museum.

the next photo *actually i forgot the number :p* taken from the national museum, which there were statues aligned vertically and has a historic and cultural meaning. the meaning of its statue is about prosperity back at that time, which focused on farming and agricultural sector that supporting the economical growth.

picture above entitled ‘ frog jar ‘. Taken from the National historic museum, this jar used as an earthquake-warning back then. i forgot how this jar works.. but as far as i know it’s involving a certain marbles, but one thing i’m pretty sure about is this thing works in a pretty mysterious way, well let’s say ‘supernatural’ way cause in this scientific era, scientists and engineers still can not predict when the earthquake may strike. 😮

our next photo taken from the prasasti museum, well actually the prasasti museum unlike any other museums, it’s basically an old-gothic cemetery that has been built since the dutch colonialism, well approximately about 200-300 years ago, when jakarta’s name was batavia. Prasasti museum has a strong gothic-western sensation,well the first time i arrived, i felt this scary dark impression and asked myself ‘dude are you sure?’ haha :p . There were big old trees prevented the sunlight *it was 2 p.m* , dried brown leafs on the ground covering the tombs and statues. So, it was kind of dark back then.

If you are a fan of gothic-western kind of thing, you really have to check out this place. I guarantee, you will have fun exploring gothic stuffs here. 😀

another picture taken from the prasasti museum, kinda spooky isn’t it?? :p

well after the prasasti museum, me and my friends went to monas (jakarta’s national museum)  to cheer things up a bit *well you know the darkness, gothic, spooky things..* haha. The picture above taken at the monas’ park, they were trying to fly a kite. There were many visitors back then, pretty much crowded, but we still having fun :).

here’s another picture taken at monas. a little girl riding a bicycle and i entitle this picture ‘move out bitches!’ lol.

after walking for quiet long distance richard, bintang, and fandy just sat on the middle of monas’ park, chatting 😀 . i call this picture as ‘dwarfs. lol. *sorry dudes hehe..*

well here’s the last picture in this post, taken when the sun sets. Later, me and my friends went to eat some italian made ice cream ‘ragusa’ it’s a legendary ice cream store in the town. it has been there for decades and it was built italian guy and now the store run by the locals. Our country founder, Ir. Soekarno, used to eat here, definitely his favorite ice cream spot that time.

Finally, i’m going to end my post now. I hope u guys enjoy or maybe u guys wanna ask about the places i went, just post ur question on the comment box. Cheers! :).

In the picture above, we were at Sunda Kelapa port, North Jakarta. Where traditional ships were berth in there, such a good time and awesome memories. before we went to sunda kelapa we had gone into different places first such as, Kota Tua, and several Museums.

Here are the other pics taken that day..
