Can't Get Enough of Japan City View

Tokyo is a truly beautiful city. These two photos below were taken from Shibuya street and the last photo was taken from Canon headquarter at Shimomaruko.

Another shots from Bromo trip

Brought Fujifilm X-M1 to Bromo wasn't a wrong choice. Instead of carrying bulky camera which is heavy and actually hamper me from moving around, I choose to bring that entry-level camera (this is what Fujifilm called its positioning).

But despite 'entry-level' category, the mirrorless X-M1 does amaze me, thx to the high quality of Fujifilm X-series and the sharpness Fujinon lens.

Short Trip to East Java

I'm recently spent 3 days in East Java: Surabaya, Bromo and Malang.  Bromo is a beautiful place and worth spending the cold morning there if you are sunrise hunter. (I'm excluded).

That was my second time to go there. Both of them, are great trip because of lovely people I went with. *For Mega, Opik, and the funny Mr Icha, love u guys *kecup*

Yes, I'm not sunrise or sunset lover, so when I got to see the sunrise,  I prefer to shoot the crowds versus that golden moment It’s more interesting to me. But it didn't stop me to shot the yellow sun tho, just to enrich my gallery ;)

Sometimes u forget how old u are, and just bumping to the gigs with friends. Yes, gig is for everyone, any age, any gender. In case some people think the opposite. *yes they does.

Who doesn't love with the band anyway. I've been falling in love with SORE since I was in college.

Some interesting facts about them are: all of the band members playing their instrument with their left hand, or in Bahasa it's called 'kidal'. Also, all the members are take the vocal role :)

My partner used to skate when in college, and he invites me to meet his old pals in a skate park located n Depok.  Well, i cant skate.  Just sitting there with the girls (the gf and the wives), made nu friend, one of them is woman photographer. She showed me their photos and told me a lot about her journey, including about her relationship with her soon-to-be husband. (Wishing the best for'em). It's interesting hearing her story tho :)

Can't Get Enough of Japan Bikes (Summer 2013)

Japan always amaze me, even with their common things such as, bike.

This last one I took from inside the bus, in winter. The photo gives some kind of solitude feeling for me.

I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle

I want to ride it where I like" ~ QUEEN

Backwood Sun

Sometimes, there's a little surprise about the person I met with.

One day, i interviewed a photographer that turns out to be Sore manager. Yes, the band :). The other day, i met a photography community, and the person i interviewed, is happens to be the drummer of this super cozy band.

Let me introduce you, Backwood Sun :)

(Location: @america, Pacific Place)

"We were inspired and influenced from middle early 60's to 70's pop and rock music like Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Neil Young, The Zombies,

Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac and Vashti Bunyan. 

Our music is heading to east psychedelics. And we emphasize on the luxurious vocal harmonization, and involve the luxurious emotion
in each inspiration in writting our song.
Imaging the east romance and then born the sounds that we call Magic Folk"
