Borobudur, May 2019
Borobudur is a 9th century Buddhist temple listed under UNESCO. We went during Vesak (they called it Waisak) day, which I’d expect there will be plentiful of street scenes. Main highlights will be their procession and released of lanterns in the night. As I don’t have the slightest clue how the proceedings will unfold, this trip will be an impetus for me to exert my favourite genre.
Streets photography has always been a genre I’ve been interested in as I’m a lover for the candid flow and feel of it. There is something about the unplanned and serendipitous nature of street photography that makes it feel so genuine. In a real sense, this genre can be a test of a photographer’s ability to “see”. There’s a saying in street photography, “if you see it through your viewfinder, it’s already too late.” We also had a peripheral tour around their plantation and public flora.
Overall I’m satisfied with the haul of my “catch.”
