Chicago is one of the most beautiful city I’ve ever visited, I really thank the Hall family (Dan Hall, Verdellh, Jacob, and Statia) for bringing me there for the weekend in March 2001. This tower is now called Willis Tower. However at that time its name was still Sears Tower, so I used that name for the title. I was on the other side of the road and was using an analog camera, so I didn’t know how the shot would look like. As you can see, the angle is a bit messy. It was the world’s tallest building until 1998, when Petronas Twin Towers surpassed it.

Again, this is from my old archive. This is how the village of Karanongko looks like in the morning, the village where my father spent his childhood. The empty field is the children’s playground, this is where they all have fun together. We only visit this place once every 2 or 3 years. This village is located in the Klaten Regency, Central Java, Indonesia.scenic sunday], [sky watch friday]

Balikpapan ‘the oil city’ is located on the eastern coast of the island of Borneo, Indonesia. It’s my hometown, the city where I spent my time the most, one of the cleanest city in the country and also a peaceful one. This picture was taken on top of a hill and we can see the oil refinery located on the shore of Balikpapan Bay. The road down the hill, the refinery, and the sunset, bring me back my memories of childhood, when we rode on the school bus in the evening to get back home. The scenery always makes me smile. I miss this city.. and the childhood moments.

Some few shots of flowers around the neighborhood, I’ve no idea what they are called. The purple one was at the field near the tennis court and the rest of the flowers were from my home garden. These are old stock. I was browsing through my old photos, then I decided to post them here. I guess they make my blog ‘greener’.

Let us enter the world of the early days, when we were kids. We used to have so many dreams and our world back then seemed to be unrealistic. I felt that art was so much closer to us than now, I mean.. we drew a lot! Drawing is one of the many languages which children use to ‘talk’ about their world. The first books I ever read as a child were the books about the universe. I loved looking at the pictures of the wide universe... and drawing them, and of course as a child back then, the use of color was often more emotional than logical.
