Absence Felt

Trees at volcanic mountain of Tangkuban Perahu looks really weird with lots of snake like branches and retarded height of bonsai. It also gives this mysterious creepy feeling of loneliness, lost and sadness. But as eerie as it may sound, I was attracted to this god's creative designs, enjoyed its chilling and gloomy feel, and have taken lots of shots here. I wish I had more time here as I wondered what it would like and feel when shot at sunset, dusk and dawn....:)

Loves the light and shadow here defining the mood in this photo. The spreading wormlike trail of roots makes you feel inside a famous story of Lord of The Ring and Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets....;)

Ice Inside Your Soul

Sekuat, setabah mana seseorang apabila bertalu-talu tanggungjawab mendatang, berlapis-lapis tanpa menunggu giliran, tekanan demi tekanan, akhirnya akan tetap mencabar keutuhan garis halus. Garis halus yang memisahkan antara kewarasan dan kesedaran, kepatuhan dan tidak peduli, kelembutan dan kekerasan. Setakat ini masih berusaha untuk mengheret kelembutan yang semakin terhakis, menguatkan dinding semangat yang kian rapuh, kekuatan yang semakin dibuat-buat. Kemana kah arahku?

Segala yang dilakukan di luar lingkungan tekanan ini adalah untuk menyiram kembali kepenatan minda, menyegarkan kembali langkah yang longlai semata-mata untuk meneruskan langkah untuk esok hari. Perlukah dipertikaikan kemana bercuti, mengapa dipersoalkan minat yang dapat meringankan bebanan ini sedangkan mereka hanya tahu mendesak, mendesak dan mendesak, dan tidak peduli untuk memperbaiki.

Semua ada hadnya, semua ada batasnya dan sempadan ini semakin hampir. Andai garis itu putus mampukah mereka menyelamatkan telur di hujung tanduk?

Sebuah monolog yang tidak berkaitan atau merujuk kepada sesiapa. Siapa makan lada dia yang merasa pedasnya. Jangan memaksa nelayan keluar ke laut jika tidak faham membaca cuaca. Jangan kepingin makan ikan jika ayam dipaksa bertelur emas.

And who do you think you are
Running round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
Tearing love apart
You are gonna catch a cold

From an ice inside your soul

So dont come back for me
Dont come back at all......

(dedicated to all the stress in my life....)

Boys are Different

Its Genetic, Its Fate, Its a Tradition....its a Boy! Some said you know its a boy or girl from the shape of the mother's belly during pregnancy, some can predict a child will have or has a younger sister or younger brother from the child's nape, and some able to guess correctly either its boy or girl by looking at the fathers attitute during pregnancy time.......and I think I can me for the secret...:D)

Boys matured slower than girls at the same age, very active and I mean really active...., stronger but lazier, you need to repeat instruction millions times, able to fully focus a few breath only and some other differences. But differences will shape each child individuality and learning how to treat differences enable them to survive in this challenging world.

However there are some exceptions but Boys should always be know what I mean....

Okay for the editing process of this photo. the steps are
1. Cropping
2. Change to Black and White with Red Infrared Filters
3. Play with Blending Mode and choose effect suitable to the concept
4. Play with color filters, brightness and contrast
5. Sharpen
6. Framing

She Loves To Draw

Ameera loves drawing and gives them as a birthday present, during father's or mother's day, or any event which matters to her. Very sensitive child, delicate emotion but sometimes strong and tough. Try to ignore her drawings present or letting the her drawing being abandoned on the table, she will be quiet, sad with the person who are not appreciating her work.

Classique Beauty

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder is a phrase commonly said which shows that the definition of beauty is different from one culture to another culture, even so more in lifestyle and individuality perception.

For me, beauty perception in a potraiture photography contributed by the mood presented by the photographer.

Infrared Colors of Tangkuban Perahu

Panoramic shot of Tangkuban Perahu volcanic tip stiched from 45 frames. The original stitched photo is impressively large with great details from corners to corners. That is the beauty of stitched photos.

"Lonely Witch Tree"

Trees around this volcanic mountain have distinctive shape and form. They were short almost 'bonsai' like and snake like. This attracted me most after the volcano itself.

the more powerful the photo, the less it makes viewers think about photographic technique, and the more viewers tend to think of the subject matter, with technique forgotten.
