A visit to Sukorejo, East Java

First of all, Happy New Year 2010 to you all :) Lots of success in this new year to you.

Two days right after the New Year 2010, I got a chance to visit my late grandma’s place to rest. I did not have a chance to say goodbye to her when she passed away last year, 2008. So on that day was her 1st death anniversary and I did what I had to do.. :)

Moving on, the day was bright and hot! I got sunburns on my bare arms, cheeks and the back of my neck. I got couple shots of little creatures around includes, grasshopper, blue dragonfly, red dragonfly and many butterflies. It was beautiful and I did never know that cemetery comes with all these beautiful natures.

Below are just some of the images that I took, please enjoy them:

Bali Trip Dec 2009 – Christmas Day

Wooot! right on the day of Christmas, I flew to Bali with my family and my in-laws too. Couple places that visit to include the Kuta Beach (Pantai Segara) as well as Pecatu which the Balinese called it “Dreamland”. Pecatu was amazing :) clean water + 3 feet waves…nice! The only thing that is suck is how to get there. Apparently, Pecatu is still under construction and the tourists are allowed to go to the beach. Since I had to carry my camera + stroller + my baby, it was not a fun thing. I was frustrated + angry … but then when I reached the place…all I did was WOW look at that white sand and the clear water!! Those anger + frustration gone with the waves :D I am glad that this trip happened.

Below is some of the captures :) Please visit the place and I hope by the time you are there, the construction is done!

New style and look!

Finally, I have time to upgrade my theme to a different one. :) After sometimes browsing for the right theme, I managed to find this theme made by Studio Press (Brian Gardner). It looks great and I love the features, presentations and the color too.

There are still some changes or fixes that I need to do in order to get older posts and photos to be displayed correctly. Hopefully soon it’ll be done!

Please do enjoy the new style and look. And more photos to come!

Cheers,

Rudy

Macro Photography…

I have been reading on some macro photographer such as Robert Thompson, Gary Bryan and Stan Sholik. I am amazed by how they described the world of macro photography. One thing that they share in common is that they have passion in doing this. Whether they shoot inanimate thing or nature wildlife, they always take their own sweet time. Their inspirations come from every things that surround them.

They inspired me to try out macro photography actually. I love how flowers and small things such as lady bug amazed me with their unique colors and patterns. and you know I never had a chance to really shot them in a “macro” way (hopefull that’s the right term for it) hehe.

I love nature in every way and i hope I can find the passion in this macro photography.
Below is one of the shots that I made recently

Flowers and Leaves

Had a chance to shoot flowers and leaves along the roadside of Edmond’s Ferry Terminal. I was using my 28-135mm lens. It was cloudy sky with a chance of raining :)
