Click "Lemon reflected on droplet" and fun raiser for Bri

Excuse me for not updating my blog as often as I used to do.

What is the excuse?

Mmmm let me think, I don’t want to claim that I have been busy lately though. Perhaps the main reason is because I got so burn out with food photography. I don’t cook or bake as often as I used to do either as the weather outside is too attempting for me to go out all the time.

It is not officially summer yet, the weather changes from time to time. Raining in the couples of hours then change to hot and humid. Very hot indeed that make me even getting lazier spend time in the kitchen.

While I am playing with my son I do outdoor photographs at the same time, that give me different feeling and hopefully I will get back soon of taking food photos as this is absolutely my passion.

I must do this posting for supporting the click event about FUNRAISER to BRI. I did write up about this HERE. Fun raiser it self is hosted by Jugalbadi, wonderful hosting who always have brilliant idea of selecting the theme for click event every month. OK, now that I need to do to support the event is I am donating A HANDMADE PURSE FROM INDONESIA. This is brand new purse without tag. Width is about 17 inches and length is about 91/2 inches. It was made from some kind of straw. Nicely done handmade by local Java people.

So here's how my fundraiser for Bri is going to work:

For every $30 dollar donation you make to Bri, you have a chance to win this beautiful purse. Then forward a copy of your receipt with your full name, email address and your home address to me at littletetuko (at) yahoo (dot) com. I will be selecting the winners for the drawings on Sunday, July 6. I will ship this purse to your address around the world.

This is my entry for Click event “yellow for Bri”

LEMON REFLECTED ON DROPLET

As the rain outside stopped, I went to my back yard to explore some droplets. This is my first project of photographing droplet. I saw pretty big dew on the weed grass, instead of photographing lemon as it is I placed a half cut of lemon behind the dew to give a reflection. I am aware as my fist time shooting dew it is far from prefect, I wish I could get all the dew in focus BUT for now while I am trying to practice more I submit this image for Bri. It is a symbol of how God takes care of the living plant by sending them raining and I believe God takes care of you too even more special. I don’t know you but I wish the best of your health. BE STRONG!

This place is called "Borobudur temple" , to know more about this temple if you may please click HERE. There is a local market close to this temple which sell all kind of handmade from local people. There where I bought this purse during my visit last time. People of Java it self if we may describe is famous of being quite, polite and reserved. They are also rich with their culture; from music, dance, batik and etc.

Ah ha... now, if you don't know where to go for summer vacation I bet they are waiting for you*big smile*

I photographed Borobudur sunset on my last vacation there, Hopefully I will be back soon.
