Layout V2

ToL-V2
Other than photography, I enjoy design. In the very beginning, I designed this blog as a design blog to share some of the designs or wallpapers that I made. Somehow along the way, I decided to change it to a photo blog. It's been 9 months since I started blogging, and I believe it is time to change the layout while cleaning up some bad codes !

Mirai Suenaga Wallpaper

Mirai Light
It has been raining so often lately, especially during weekends. When it rains in Japan, usually it rains all day along and often accompanied by strong winds. I would rather stay home during that time.

It was raining yesterday so I spent my time making wallpaper of Mirai Suenaga, cute mascot of Dannychoo.com. Been a while since I made wallpaper, so I went for a simple design.

Inage

Inage
Last week I spent most of my free time at home. I tried to devote my time for my dear Mac, to understand him, and to get to know each other. Although things were progressing nicely, it might take a while before we become best friend. I decided to give some free time alone for him while I went adventuring in Chiba Prefecture.

Himeji Castle

Himeji Castle
During the Kobe trip, I walked too much. I could hear my legs begging me to stop walking and take a one day rest. I tried to listen to them but it would be a shame if I wasted my holiday only to stay at home. Thankfully, my legs and I finally came to an agreement that we should spend our morning resting, then take the later train in the afternoon.

Kobe Walker

Kobe Port Tower
It was Thursday in the afternoon. The wind was quite strong that day due to the typhoon. I was a bit worried if the typhoon would ruin my weekends. Fortunately, aside from the wind, everything was great. No rain, no cloud, and the sun shined brightly.

When I heard from my friends that they planned to go to Kobe in the weekends, I thought that it was a crazy thing to do. If I wanted to join, I needed to pack my things, to arrange a place for me to stay, and to buy the Shinkansen ticket as soon as possible. I needed to do everything within one day. No, I should have said within half day because I had to work on Friday. It's going to be a tough journey but I was sure that it's going to be a fun one. It's going to be a FUN one ! With that in my mind, I decided to join the fun.

At this time, I love what I'm doing and I am hoping to continue doing this for a long time.

Home

Olyn
To have a place you can called "Home" is a wonderful thing. A place where you can rest and get food for your body and mind. No matter how far you travel over the world, there is nothing as great as your home. During the Obon holiday, I went back to Indonesia to visit my family.

FAQ: Photography Tips

IMG_6176
I've received few emails asking about photography. I love to respond to the emails. To be able to share what I know is a very good thing. That is why starting from this post, I will make an FAQ post from time to time to tell you a little bit about photography. I am not a professional nor a photography guru. The FAQ will be based on my personal experience. I believe every people has their own style so it might not work on you. What I could guarantee is my love for photography. ;)

A Walk in the Park
