Don't Think Just Shoot

I bought Lomo Smena 35 at about USD 35. 
Plastic body. No light meter. No focusing screen. No battery needed. No LCD.
Manual book written in Russia alphabet
(who need manual book, btw ?)

Loaded with Era Pan 100, I tried to shoot without thinking.
Not really tried, actually.
I couln't stop "thinking" about distance between camera and object,
and tried to match picture in lens with sky condition, sunny or cloudy.

But I did not really care about the result. 
Here some of them.

At fish and bird market - part 2

Karolus Naga and Doni Maulistya came to Malang. Together with my neighbour Benny Nur Susanto, we went to Pasar Burung Malang on a beautiful Saturday morning. 

We started with black coffee and some cigar to warm up.







Only two hours, but it was a nice experience with two maestros.

Susah

- i've got a strong urge to fly
but i've got nowhere to fly to - Pink Floyd

memang susah
kalau terlalu banyak
yang ingin diungkapkan

untuk mengurai satu persatu
tak tahu harus mulai dari mana
serasa semua mendesak untuk dibuka

kadang terfikir
untuk mengumpulkan semua jadi satu
lalu menuangkannya dalam sepatah dua kata singkat

seringkas peluit kereta api :
kereta segera berangkat, pengantar silakan turun,
mohon mundur dari jalur rel ......

namun ternyata itu juga tidak sederhana

Down Is The New Up

" Eskalator adalah sebuah oksimoron (oxymoron): kombinasi dua unsur yang berlawanan. Eskalator membuat kita berpindah sementara kita tetap diam di tempat - jadi, perpindahan dalam diam. Gerakan eskalator telah memenuhi kebutuhan untuk berpindah ... Pada saat yang sama terpenuhilah kebutuhan untuk tidak berpindah demi mengadakan kontak fisik. Jadi, di mana lagi orang dapat sedikit bermesraan secara terang-terangan kalau bukan di eskalator. " - Tubuh di Mal (Chua Beng-Huat) - Kalam 15
