Fellow Hunters

Sungguh senang
bertemu sesama pemburu
saling papas,  saling senyum sapa
saling pandang dengan ekor mata
“hmm, pakai apa dia?”


INTO THE LENS -a.k.a I AM A CAMERA

Writer: HOWE, STEVE JAMES / SQUIRE, CHRIS / WHITE, ALAN / DOWNES, GEOFF / HORN, TREVOR

Memories, how they fade so fast
Look back, that is no escape
Tied down, now you see too late
Lovers, they will never wait

I am a camera

Take heart, I could never let you go
And you, always let the feeling show
Love us all, how you never broke your heart
You lose them
If you feel the feeling start

I am a camera, camera, camera

And you, may find time will blind you
This to just remind you
All is meant to be

There, by the waterside
Here, where the lens is wide
You and me
By the sea
Taken in tranquility

Taken, taken so easily
To pass into glass reality
Transform, to transfer, to energy

Taken, taken, so easily
To pass into glass reality
Transformer, transferring energy

Bekerja dan Bermain

Meski masih kecil, gadis ini duduk manis menemani orang tuanya berdagang amplop angpao
dengan sabar, bahkan bermain sendiri.

(Gedung yang) Photographer Friendly

Sebel banget kalau lagi asyik motret tiba-tiba didatangi pak Satpam,” Maaf Pak, di sini dilarang ambil foto” atau pas mau masuk Mall,”Maaf Pak, dilarang motret di dalam Mall”. Bahkan pernah disebuah pasar tradisional saya juga sempet diinterograsi sama Satpam plus tatapan mata penuh selidiknya. “Mas wartawan ya?, mesti lapor dulu”.

Di gedung-gedung tinggi juga kadang ada policy tentang ini.

Kenapa sebuah foto bisa jadi ancaman?

Dipikir-pikir mungkin terkait keamanan, bisa saja foto-foto itu disalahgunakan untuk perencanaan pengeboman. Atau terkait hak siar/edar seperti di konser-konser musik *salut sama penyelenggara Java Jazz, kalau soal ini*, atau jangan-jangan malah ada yang disembunyikan/takut masuk koran?

Apa lagi ya?

 

Quote of the Day

“One of the powerful things Bill Gates told me is ‘Learn to say no.’ You don’t have to make everyone happy.” -Sal Khan, Khan Academy

Ini mudah diucapkan tapi sulit sekali dilakukan -buat saya. Kadang keterbatasan resource membuat kita terpaksa membuat prioritas sehingga membuat orang lain kecewa. It’s hurt me sometimes. Well, c’est la vie ya, should learn to live with it.

Steve Jobs told me that you should never go to a meeting or make a telephone call without having a clear idea of what you’re trying to achieve.
