Jakarta, Thursday 17 January 2013

After just fell asleep for a little over 2 hours, starting at 5: 30 in the morning I awake. Anxiety began to overshadow will flood due to heavy rain still falling, rain had started to fall from around 7: 30 in the morning. Sewer water had almost reached the surface streets. Immediately I packed up the strong home furnishings, moving, lifting and so forth.

Right only, 7: 30 a.m. the water has begun to inundate the entrance terrace home and gradually inundate the living room. I could just let go and try to enjoy this situation.

The idea occurred to try to document the situation of flooding in residential neighborhood. As soon as I took the umbrella and wearing a raincoat.

Only in less than 2 hours it turns the water already inundate almost the entire housing estate.

It looks like the flooding this year was greater than in 2007. The height of the water in this housing between 30-60 cm.The position of the high road became the favorite place to park a motorcycle or car so that spared from the flooding

Submerged the school were closed, students are encouraged to go back to their respective homes

For adults the flood are a problem and need special attention. But not for children. They make the flood as entertainment and where they play.

Almost 2 hours I am around the housing estate where I live. Flooding in the area is not too large. There are still many other areas in Jakarta who experience greater flood.

The phenomenon of flooding did it complexity. Many were anxious but some are greeted with glee. One thing that is important is to try to deal with all of this with a smile

So my brief documentation. Hopefully this ends fast flood and disaster-stricken communities swamped always get the blessing and mercy of God

Note: photos were taken in a residential area of the Kompleks Pelabuhan Indonesia 2, Tanjung Priok Jakarta Utara with an Android Smartphone

Expressions

Aside

I am newbie, photography is my hobby. I do enjoy and enthusiast learning street photography.

Human Interest, is one of my interest in photography. Why? because i can capture unique expression, gesture or pose of the people. People expressions can be shot directly or candid shot. The purpose is to get spontaneous expressions.

Image  The best place to get some human interest picture is at the public place. Just open your eyes to look for a moment. Use your intuition and be patient to click your shutter when find the object

Image

Image

Some good reflects is needed to shot a moment. Be patient and no need to be hurry while you explored the street or public place, or you will miss a moment

Image

Image

Besides expression, you can shot unique pose or gesture.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Candid shoot is not always success to get a good picture. You can shot directly in front of the object get more expression

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

ImageImageActually directly shot is more fun and challenging for me. We can get many expression such as shocked, mad, indifferent, turning their face etc. Just give them your best smile to excuse. Otherwise you can get more expression from directly shot
