Jakarta Highland Gathering is an annual event held to show some cultures, especially scottish. Their tagline this year "A Scottish Tradition for the International Community". What can we see? Games, dances, bazaars, and so many else. It's held in Imperial Golf Club, from morning till dawn. I was one of the volunteers in this event, not very busy and tiring, and I got privilege to watch the show for free. The tiring part was when, one
day before we had briefing, I needed to go early morning from cikarang to karawaci. Actually I was planning to stay there for a night in my friend's place. Great thing is I didnt charged my camera because I think the battery was full, and I didn't bring the charger. I tried to find the charger in shopping mall, but it's expensive -,-. So I took bus back to Cikarang, next morning went to Karawaci again..huft..so careless. If you want to know more about what is Jakarta Highland Gathering, you better check the website. Here, I just wanna share some of the pictures. It's my first time taking pictures of an activity, and the object is people. Usually I just take my pics, or the landscape of nature, but now I'm trying to focus on the people. With my small pocket camera, Sony Tx-5, finally I could capture some pictures, I think still amateur hehe. But, I felt something interesting taking people as the object. It's a lil bit difficult especially the dances, because they keep moving. Finding right angle, right facial expression, and right movement are very difficult. And when I got a good pics, I felt very excited. Maybe here, I only post some of the pictures and also you can see some cultural side here.
