Having A Picnic With Friends Always Fun

Good Morning..

Always. Unless you go for a picnic with your most hated friends, then any picmic with friends always promise fun.

You may argue and have a quarrel with them at the office or any other places but when you all go together to have fun. It is always a much better option to choose than solo traveling. Perhaps, many people like to go alone like a lone ranger to a place but definitely, it won’t be my choice.

Even for an introvert photography enthusiast like me, it is always better to have a company with me when I want to have a picnic. Of course it will be different if the purpose of the travel is to hunt for photos or moments. In this case, I prefer to go alone that I can concentrate more on my camera.

Going for a picnic always mean that we are searching for happy moments, or at least to also feel the warmth of friendship.  Going alone is even less attractive for me than having a meditation or yoga. Too quiet.

Another reason, from the angle of a photographer, is that at least I will have enough object to capture by a camera. Many silly moments occur and this situation makes my camera function more like a camera than just an accessory of a traveler.

This Photo Of Becak Should Show Hidden and Common Problem Of Indonesia Cultur

Bringing your camera everywhere will give you a chance to record something that reflexes a life of people.

This photo of Becak, one of old transportation means in Indonesia, actually shows one hidden “big” problem in Indonesia’s society. Foreigners may wonder what is wrong with the three wheeler and even many Indonesians may have the same thought.

The photo was captured few weeks ago on Sudirman Street, one of main road in my hometown, Bogor. From several Becaks, I took some photos. Most of them were intended to train my capability in photography but later, I found that the photo can be utilized to tell the people about how is the living of Indonesian, at least a small fragment of them.

The hidden problem is because in some cities, like Jakarta and Bogor, becak has been “banned” from main roads. They are not allowed to operate and make a pass the road. Yes, there are laws that prohibit them from doing that.

In reality, it is still quite easy to find the three wheeler crawling slowly on many main roads.

This shows that law enforcement are still not effective. A quite common attitude in this still developing country.

I am not against becak drivers who try to earn living. However, they should also live their life following the rules.

Laws, rules, regulations are made to make sure orderliness in a society. The disobedience can create problems and clutter.

The photo is simple, normal, and only one activity of people in my city but behind it, the photo shows what problem Indonesia people are facing. Quite a big problem
