Broga Hill

5

It's luscious, it's green, it's windy, it's high up. A perfect photographers spot. Oh, old people love it too.

Broga Hill is located in a little old town called Broga on the borders of Negeri Sembilan and Selangor. It’s believed that the name Broga is derived from a mythical forest beast named Buragas (thanks Wiki). It’s a very quiet little town filled with fruit farms, temples and palm oil estates. Of course, one of these estates will lead us up to Broga Hill.

A whole bunch of us decided to sacrifice our precious sleep and make our way out there one fine Saturday morning. Some of made up the right hill while some of us went up a mosquito-infested hill on the other side of town. Hah! Well, the hike was interesting in the sense that none of us was expecting it to be that difficult. I was in jeans. Enough said.

We were just in time for a lovely sunrise and wasted no time clicking away, posing, laughing, jumping and erm, more posing. All that huffing and puffing up the hill was so worth the amazing scenery and the great time we had up there. We even met some lovely senior citizens who were just finishing their morning exercises and were making their way down. Respect!

It’s definitely a great place to check out and just chill. I am so going back that again one day. In proper attire, of course :p

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Imperfection Is In Everything We Do: A Talk With Adriano Sodré

    Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
