Kenapa Street Photography

Saya memulai street fotografi ini beberapa minggu yang lalu, saya bahkan tidak tahu kenapa hal itu saya lakukan…  “seems cool dan why not”, mungkin itu adalah hal yang terpikirkan saat saya ingin memulai hobi ini. mungkin perlu diketahui juga salah satu hobi yang saya punya adalah senapan angin.

Dari kedua hobi tersebut saya mungkin bisa menyimpulkan beberapa hal membuat saya tertarik untuk melakukan street photography ini.

  • Saya suka outdoor activity : kedua hobi ini tidak bisa dilakukan di dalam rumah… harus ke luar, kepanasan, keringatan… thats what I love doing, yang sayangnya kesibukan kantor membuat waktu jalan sangat sedikit… anda tak bisa membawa senapan angin tembak tembak sana sini 5 menit dan pulang… kecuali anda psikopat :)
  • Kalau ada dua tipe manusia di dunia ini yang satu adalah hunter dan yang lain adalah farmer, maka saya lebih ke tipe yang pertama. I love hunting, seperti anda lihat di blog ini juga saya berburu Bajing / tupai… tapi saya juga sangat memikirkan keseimbangan alam, jadi berburu tupai saya harus ke area yang populasi tupainya sangat tinggi dan tidak balance… dan itu tidak dekat, harus menginap pula… Dengan kamera, anda bisa melakukannya kapan saja… bahkan bila semakin sering kita mengambil gambar, semakin kita “preserve the moment” tanpa kita merusak habitat.
  • Dengan street photography, anda “dipaksa” untuk berhenti sejenak, melihat keindahan sekitar, appreciate little things… dan mengambil gambar itu untuk bisa anda atau orang lain kenang nantinya… Dalam gaya hidup sekarang yang sangat diperlukan kecepatan, bahkan 24jam seperti tak cukup… hal ini dapat membuat kira fresh dan mengurangi stress… dan kita tahu dalam stress kemungkinan kita membuat kesalahan besar adalah tinggi…
  • Dengan Street Photography, kita mengambil gambar yang menurut kita layak diabadikan, bukan karena orang lain mengatakannya… kita menjadi diri sendiri, photo kita adalah bagaimana kita melihat alam sekitar, yang meruapakan pancaran dari jiwa kita… it is a diary of the ways we see the world… a diary of the wonderful and beautiful slices of everyday life even if it is sad moment…
  • Most of all… I can conclude.. I enjoy it… and I think I will have this hobby for long time, hence it deserve  a new category in this blog…

Just to show you how I see something that I think it is beautiful but may be not for you… here is the picture…:

trees

When I see it, this is actually the first light after few days we have hard rain, cloudy sky…  gloomy days… it is one of the beautiful day in the morning… a fine day to walk and enjoy… but most of us will missed it because we are worried to be late at the office…

This picture also showing that this one particular tree, is not happy to be restricted by man made container… slowly it breaks free, something that it should celebrate if it were human… I took it to freeze the moment, before we cut down the tree because it dare to challenge us – human. or make much stronger container to held it back.. It is representation of us as human, wants to control everything even controlling mother nature…

Thats how I appreciate this picture, that is why I took the picture… nothing to do with you or any other person… that’s how I see it, that is my diary of that day…

Cheers for now

Airgun: Hunting with HW77 – contain graphic image

After few times I visited local range, few of airgun friends ask me to join squirrel hunting.. at first I hesitate because I don’t really into hunting, I prefer them to live and coexist with us, but they convinced me that squirrel is becoming a big problem (pest) in the coconut plantation somewhere in W. Java. So I will not do any harm taking out few of them and I will actually help the coconut farmer. It seems legit and correct according to definition of “pest”,  I finally agree to join in the hunting trip. Continue reading

Update tuning HW77 after 500 pellets

Now the gun is already past 500 pellets after the full power tune, this is what happened:

  1. The vibration (twang) is back quite noticable… not sure what happened, should I dismantle it to check if something is broken..?
  2. A lot of dieseling on the first 100 pellets… that is explain a lot faster velocity for the crosman premier 7.9 gr, after dieseling subsided the gun is no longer like the JSB exact heavies, it prefers Crosman premier 7.9 again…! :)
  3. The velocity is still higher compare to the pre-tune, I notice a flatter trajectory compare to pretune…
  4. Still cock harder than pre-tune.

Now, if I have stop now… my recommendation for this target tunes kit is good to improve hunting capabilities of HW77. Not for FT due to the twang or vibration is still quite noticeable.

Yesterday my friend borrow this gun for dove hunting (legal hunting), he got few of them…if you not into hunting please do not click this… graphic image. For the record, I prefer birds to live and sing, but I am not anti (sensible and responsible) hunting…
