The energy building…or, how I got yelled at by a security guard.
This past Sunday, my family and I attended a church that is in the downtown of South Jakarta. It is on the second floor of a bank building, next to and across the street from a number of very tall buildings. I left the church after my family and made my way down the street when the reflection of this one building in the glass of another caught my attention.
I turned my camera towards it, aimed, and fired off three shots. As I took the last shot, I heard, “Hey! Hey! No bagus! No bagus!” A security guard had seen me snapping photos and moved from his post to a spot about two hundred meters from me and was yelling at me, telling me that what I was doing was not good (“bagus”, which is pronounced “ba-goose”, means good). I waved, and put my camera behind my back and walked away, and so did he.
I looked up the name of the building later – it’s an energy company. I wasn’t even shooting the building itself, just the reflection of another building. I wonder what they’re hiding in there.
Oh yeah…sorry for the scrolling. If you want to see the whole thing in one shot, click on the photo.
