After spending 1 night in Derawan Island, we moved to Maratua Island, a bigger, yet even quieter island. As we arrived there in a very late afternoon, the stunning sunset welcomed us, promising a superb holiday.

Waiting to board the aircraft in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan for our spring holiday, I captured the silhouette of my father-in-law, my husband and our 2 sons. Three generations in 1 shot. Very happy with the result.

Awaiting for dessert to be served, I played around with my little one’s tiny yet powerful camera. The light is right above my head, thus the shadow perfect. I just need to further learn how to set the camera properly.

I love how the simple setting works well for this shot.
This is the same area, the same big tree I used to play at when I was small. We used to put our plastic pool there, dragged a chair to be our jumping point. How simple things stay in your memory forever. This area is now the playground for my kids and their cousins. Different game, but I’m pretty sure the memory will also stay in their minds forever.

One thing I definitely learned today is, taking picture while sitting on elephant’s back is not an easy task. The movement of elephant, particularly on uneven surface, making it difficult to get a nice clear picture.
So I saw this beautiful blue colored bird flying in front of us. With my 24-105mm, I tried to capture the beautiful blue feathers. Unfortunately, as mentioned before, all pictures came blurry. Then, just before we went too far, and / or he flew away, I snapped this silhouette of him between the leaves and branches against blue sky.

For my kids, going to the beach used to be a weekend treat. Every weekend. Sometimes even twice or three times weekly. But now as we live in Jakarta, it is just not feasible. Therefore, you can imagine how happy they are every time we bring them to beach destinations during their break. Which I hope can be seen on this picture.
