When I’m try to celebrating Indonesian independence day last year with writing down my 17 Indonesian favorite lomographer http://www.lomography.com/homes/hervinsyah/blog/77442-happy-indonesia-independence-day-on-august-17th-my-top-17-fave-indonesian-lomographer , I’m quite surprise with a lot of positive response that I got. So I try to search again another 17 Indonesian lomohomes that I think will be my favorite this year. 17 is a special number for Indonesia because our independence day was on August 17th, 1945.
