:: The Camera: NIKON F70

I was using my dear old Nikon F70 for almost all the picture here.

Actually, I don't know much about photography techniques and helped a lot by natural light source, my sense of composition and the camera itself which works wonder to me :)

Anyway, from one of Nikon's website I've found that the main features of it are:

+3D Matrix Metering using 8-segment Matrix Sensor
+Built-in retractable Speedlight with 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash
+Vari-Program [P] system
+Large, informative LCD, coordinated in shape and color with the control buttons
+F70D features built-in Panorama (13 x 36mm) mode and data imprinting
+Two 3V CR123A (or DL123) lithium batteries

Well... just enjoy the pictures, hopefully as much as I enjoy it:)

Cheers!

:: Jogjakarta

:: Details from Taman Sari's
Jogjakarta is one of Indonesian greatest tourist destinations. And also, it's my mom homeland, so I came there quite often once in a while. Among its amazing places like the great Borobudur, Keraton [The Palace], Malioboro: the street of heavenly crafts, there's one place I'd never seen before: Taman Sari.
So, one fine day, I was going there with my cousins from Prague and we've got one of becak's driver as our guide there. He showed us the secret passage to it. It's mysterious and fascinating. Dark alleys, people with their roosters, beautiful ruins....
......and whispers from the past....
