Apparently there’s a Danish church just behind my house. I had no idea. I had the pleasure of shooting Svenna’s baptism there last week. I don’t think most of the people there were Danish, but the service was mostly in Danish. I still haven’t quite figured it all out.
Finally at the end of my Java photos. This was my second time in Jogja and I still love it. Maybe even more than my first time. Really looking forward to being able to spend a few months there at some point to study more Bahasa. It’ll happen.
I’m in Thailand now, but in an effort to feel like I’m still working, I thought I should post another set from Java.
I’ve finally decided which of these shadow puppets I want: Baruna, God of the Sea. If anyone would like to find me a nice and authentic one and send it to me, I would be forever grateful.
Also… I’m posting this from a hammock.
Eugene and Shirlene are dedicated Ben & Jerry’s fans. As I’m told, Eugene basically seduced Shirlene with copious amounts of ice cream – like, 10 pints at a time. Naturally, they needed to do a pre-wedding shoot at Ben & Jerry’s. The shop on Dempsey Hill was absolutely perfect. Lovely heritage building and a VW van that matched their choice of ice cream. If anyone from the shop asks, NO, we did not touch the van. You can’t prove anything.
This was my second time at Borobudur and for the second time we were too cheap to pay the 35USD or whatever the price is for the actual sunrise entry. I’m not going to say we didn’t make a dedicated effort to find someone to pay off to open the main entrance ahead of time to let us in to catch the sunrise. As much as I hate admitting failure, I think the lack of actual sunrise shots may suggest the outcome of that effort :(
We still managed to make it in early enough to have the temple pretty much to ourselves so we didn’t have a million people in our photos. Nice.
I’m off for some island time next week, but I’ll try to get another post up before I leave.
