    LomoKino: The SUPER 35mm Movie Camera

    When I was young, I remember digging out a roll of an 8mm film from my grandpa's drawer. Back then, I knew it was a movie film, because I went through every single frame of the film and I noticed changes of movement in the pictures. But I do not know what made it happen.

It was raining when we arrived the hillside, 7am. We were 50/50 to decide whether to go for it or not. Well, we decided to take a special opportunity of this rainy trip up.

    Kuala Kubu Bharu Waterfall

    This waterfall is cool, the water flushing is really strong and fun. The idea of going to this waterfall is to get the total jungle adventures kind of feeling. Being out of the big city, traveling and trekking up hill. Listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. When we were trekking up looking for the waterfall, the water splashing sounds were already been heard and brought all the excitement even before we actually saw the waterfall. Kuala Kubu Bharu itself, is quite a small country sites, where there are still people and community there maintaining the whole place.

The Fortress of Kaitbay is one of Alexandria most famous ancient lighthouse that was built in 279B.C. The term lighthouse has the meaning itself, but we do not see any lighthouse when we get there. The reason is easy and simple, it was already destroyed by a disaster that happened long time ago.

Well, this time I've made myself another favorite album from there. By applying the green filter, I find it useful for strong sun ray reduction and it makes my pictures more clearer. It's not difficult to get to the location and you it's absolutely free to enter to that jetty, it's beside the Westin Resort hotel.

    Desert Sunset of USJ3A

    There was one day when I was on my way to pick my girlfriend up from work around evening time 6 p.m., but I was too early for that. So, I drove myself nearby the area by heading to random direction, where I turned as I saw a corner; and I turned as I saw a junction. Then finally decided to check out a quite new housing area nearby there as well.
