Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

Almost forget that I participate this challenge since I have been so busy recently. But I won’t miss one of them, I promise, thus at least I will have a post in a week, πŸ˜†

TINY.. What tiny things have you ever seen? How could you say that one is tiny? This one is a bit tiny, that one is tinier, or tiniest… It’s just relative I think…

A little bright green moth landed on my paper that evening. You can compare its size with the text size. I believe that was considered as tiny, but wait, everything can be tiny if you compare with something more-more bigger that itself.

*

For example…

Can we say a human is a tiny one under the gigantic trees? I took this picture in Dramaga Forest, near from Situ Gede in Bogor. I found a lot of a big trees there, and I surely believe there are bigger ones out there, yeah somewhere I don’t know.

*

And something NOT tiny can be tiny, if they are made as mini version or toys…

An old plastic (tiny) car trapped on roof! A kid might throw that toy car to the roof and couldn’t take it back. The picture taken on a roof of abandoned house in a village. Quite scary I remember… πŸ˜€Β  OK, that’s all.

Salam Jepret!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Red

Since I have been so busy this week, I just simply ended up this week challenge RED by choosing one of my collection which I think would be good for this theme. Unfortunately, I found one photo only. Let’s check!

Lampion, It’s called here. Chinese paper lantern which is so popular in Chinese culture until now. Commonly appear in Chinese temple either as a real lantern or an ornament. As ornament, this lantern for some reasons, mostly is made from red paper, and If you ever visit Chinese temple like above you obviously can see that red is the major color cover up many part of the building, walls, sculptures even incense sticks. I heard Red means luck or fortune for Chinese, cmiiw.

I took this photo in a Chinese temple I visited in downtown of Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. I am not sure, but it was around Chinese New Year 2010, and they made such a “red festivity” all around temple. I have never seen so many hanging lantern filled up the temple sky like that before. Nice decoration, isn’t it?

*

Wait, to make sure that red is really common color for the lantern, let me play the photo color a little bit.

I believe, for you who are familiar with the lantern, you can guess the color of the lanterns even though I made it in monotone like above. It’s always red in your mind, am I right? πŸ˜€

*

Another one. Just for fun, If you want something different, try to reduce the saturation all colors but red, orange and yellow. It’s going to be like photo below! Cool! πŸ˜€

Well, I am (still) using Adobe Lightroom 3.3 for editing, if you wondering.

Happy Blogging!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Wildlife

Wildlife? Again! I found the theme of this week is so difficult, yet really challenging! πŸ˜† For me now, who’s living in Kalimantan, where’s jungle and wildlife surely exist. I was thinking to go somewhere like a jungle nearby and find such cute animals like deer, monkey, or beautiful bird, instead of boar, wild dog or even giant snake! Those last three I mentioned are an enough reason for me to keep apart from their nest πŸ˜›

Thus, I chose 4 pictures from my collection, hoping they would be good enough for “wildlife theme” Check them out!

I ever posted long time ago some of wildlife I saw in North Carolina Zoo here, but I have never posted this one. I took the picture from outsideΒ  a big paludarium where’s some of colorful and poisonous frogs living in.

She is Ingrid, my friend from Nicaragua, standing next to a safari car of NC Zoo. I think this is also typical wildlife style. The popular car I saw in every africa wildlife film! πŸ˜† but, yeah without that cute color of course! πŸ˜€

**

Where do you think this place should be in? πŸ˜€ You can find it behind a rectorate of my university (IPB). If you walk down to rectorate building from the library, you’ll pass the LSI bridge, with Lake LSI on the left and this jungle view on the right. It was still early morning when I took the picture, that’s why you can see the fog made the view really picturesque!

**

I don’t know what bird it is. I got it on a tree behind my house. One of many kinds of bird sang and flew around everyday here. Lovely one! πŸ™‚

Salam Jepret!
