Calm sea and beautiful panorama near Garut, West Java, Indonesia.
Yay! Another reunion trip with my high school’s gang. We decided to go somewhere near our home in Bandung and choose Santolo Beach to stay overnight. It’s a 2 hours ride crossing valleys of tea garden from Bandung to Pameungpeuk, the small town where Santolo Beach is.
There’s not to much crowd in Santolo, I don’t think I saw another tourists than us. The beach is clean and spread wide from side to side. The sea is calm, the waves ended far out from the beach, it almost feel like swimming in a lake.
There’s only like 3 or 4 inns in Santolo, it’s all cheap and clean, perfect for unemployed fresh graduate like us. It’s Indonesia, so even though it’s cheap, you’re still allowed to bargain. The perfect way to end the day in Santolo, is enjoying the fresh seafood (and also cheap) served by the local restaurant.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.

12 New Media students from the University of Texas, all armed with Lomography cameras, travelled to New York City for an advanced studio art course in May 2016. They each shot one roll of film in a LomoKino per day, and the results were exciting and diverse. Read more here.
