Lost

Back from Bali. Wasn't exactly a fully enjoyable trip as I wanted, stupid weather kept getting in the way (heavy rains in Bali are scary!), but at least I came back with fresher mind, sort of. And I guess it's always good to be just in new, unfamiliar places every now and then. Curing that saturated feeling of being in the same place and seeing the same things for too long. I needed it.

Didn't make too many photos... I'd like to think that it's because I'm getting more selective in what I photograph but there's also the possibility of not being used out in the street again... these days I find myself spending more time in front of the computer to see photos or read blogs and other stuff than actual shooting. It's good learning all the information that internet can provide (it really is true that the more you learn the more you realize how little you know) but without knowing the scope one can easily gets lost along the way, even straying from the original intentions.

So anyway, enjoy. All with D80 and 18-135.

Indian marines. There were many of them that day, all in groups of three or four people like this one... dunno if they're in transit or something, but most of them have the same attitudes, trying to look all calm and reserved yet at the same time obviously seem not sure about where they are and what they're doing there... I can actually relate to that feeling to some degree.

And what would pictures from Bali be without sunsets! But seriously, it was beautiful.

A nod to Erwitt.

hi, i'd like to share a quote from one of my hero, Sam Abell, that you may want to mentally grasp.

"My best work is often almost unconscious and occurs ahead of my ability to understand it"

@gladia:
thanks for sharing, it certainly makes sense somehow... when I browse through my older works sometimes I come across images that I didn't give much thought before, yet they suddenly look intriguing now, as if I can see them in a completely new light... I'll definitely keep it in mind.

btw, if you read this, is there a place where I can see your more recent works? I love your Tibet images!

@naga:
iya banyakan make di 18, walau distorsinya bener² bapuk...

as for the bet, bener, mau taruhan? kalo menurutku sih pasti bakal pada komen: "mas, kepala di foregroundnya mengganggu..." kikiki :D

@dinto:
thanks mate!

hi Wid, i'm afraid that i don't have recent pictures to share since i'm taking an indefinite sabbatical from taking pictures. My daily ritual now is spending more time reading photo books, probably i might have been browsing the same book over and over again, sounds boring but it's fun.
