Bogor: A Night With A Moon | Semalam dengan Bulan

Actually taken about a week ago when I was in insomnia mode. Played with my Fujifilm X10 for quite long time until I got this image of dark yellow sky and moon. It’s kinda beautiful and eerie in the same time.

We’ll see what happened next.

Although it is quite sunny during the day and mosquitoes come after dark and also dusk, the weather today just fine. Even it is quite good with breeze and rain in the evening. Sometimes it is very warm during the evening but it is okay for me.Continue reading “Bogor, The Rainy City”
