I love seeing other people taking photographs. I don’t know what I look like when I take photos, but I hope I look sophisticated, elegant even. I’m sure I don’t, but I like to think that I look like I know what I’m doing.


Walk a mile…

shoes

…in someone else’s shoes.  In this case, the shoes belong to a man who scavenges for a living.  I pass men, women, and children who scavenge to live every morning as I head to school.  They work their way through the trash of Kemang residences, looking for things that will bring them income.

Walk a mile in this pair of shoes.  I doubt I would make it through a day.


WordPress Photo Challenge: Silhouette

 

Maybe it’s not the most traditional silhouette, but I snapped this within minutes of the lights of the Petronas Towers, in Kuala Lumpur, going on.  The evening sky served as the perfect background to the ever darkening towers.

What do you think?  Does it count as a silhouette?


Kemang Style!

I don’t know what to say about this.  How about, “Take that, Gangnam Style!”  No?

Street style?

Jakarta style?


I’m feeling a wee bit organized…

…too much?  I don’t think so, but two years ago no one would have found my hotel closet looking like this.


Mr. Bean was here.

If you’ve seen Mr. Bean then you know he’s unpredictable, but today he showed up in Jakarta.

Okay, so that’s not entirely true, but the mall attached to our school opened, officially, today and one of the anchor stores, Debenham’s, decorated with Mini Coopers and, apparently, Mr. Bean.

It’s definitely the weirdest school situation with which I’ve been involved.


Unusual: WordPress Photo Challenge

The placement of these lights is what made this unusual for me.  They are placed on the underside of a concrete stairwell at Simon Fraser University.  They, sort of, light a number of study carrels that are also situated under the stairs, but do not provide enough light to make much of a difference.  As a style choice, it’s like a bunch of little halogen UFO’s hanging over one’s head.

Unusual.

Oh, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
