Abel turned five!

Some snapshots from Abel's fifth birthday bash (which actually happened last month, hehe).

her adorable friends,
Aaand we went straight to unwrapping the gifts as we got home!
Frowning, cake smeared birthday girl!

Random thought that occured after a conversation about religions last night with a friend.

Be kind.
Be happy.
Do no harm.

If you ask me what my religion is, those three mantras up there will be the answer. Well, that and Bob Dylan. You definitely can learn how to live just by listening to the words he wrote, it's true! 

Anyway, you don't have to try and put me into a box. I am not made to be defined by a label on a box. You don't need to worry about my relationship with the holy one up there, we've got enough matters to worry about right before our eyes, all around us. So let's do something about that first, shall we? :)

All Access Pass

Congratulations to Asra for his first (of many more, I'm sure) book launch! The book is titled All Access Pass, filled with numerous photographs of local musicians on stage. 
The music! The lights! The screaming fans!
Me myself have always enjoyed watching live music performances, even sometimes, dare I say it... embarrassing myself by participating in photographing the action going on the stage. But of course it's nothing compared to Asra's photographs, a veteran of stage photographer. Here are some of my favourite photographs from the book:
I love LOVE the angle of the shot of this lovely duo,
look at that smoke!
This is what I call perfect lighting in perfect moment,
and Arian's jump!

One of the best stage photographers I know. Looking forward to see more from Asra! Check out his other works here at his Flickr page.

Strangers.

Being a hoarder that I am, I have been developing this habit of storing all photos I've taken over the years. All. Of. Them. Yes, I don't have the heart to delete them, even if it's a lousy, blurry, you-can't-even-tell-what-picture-it-is photo. Every now and then, when I've got some free time, I scan through the photo folders, and sometimes I find something worthy to post about. Ha! 

Strangers! They're everywhere!

Tiny stranger trying to climb the giant window at Soekarno Hatta airport,
blonde couple looking at the menu at a seafood restaurant,
reading a magazine by the Kuta beach,
taking his dog for a walk,
debating whether to jump into the water or not,
sunset watching with the family,
trying to sell something,
and capturing something too. :)
