EF#7 Water

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” 
― Ansel Adams

I am not a professional photographer, yet I’m really into photography. I’m just a hobbyist who doesn’t know much about photography techniques. I just love taking pictures, snap here and there, snap this and that, even some random things can be so interesting to me. Sometimes I take pictures using my brother’s DSLR camera, sometimes using my tiny digital camera, and mostly using my phone camera (Does this count as photography? 😛 ).

This picture I took when I and my friends visited Hairos Waterpark. It is located at Jl. Letjend Djamin Ginting, KM 14.5 Medan, North Sumatra. It took about 30 minutes to get there by car from the centre of the city of Medan where I live. Actually there was no story behind this picture. I was just curious how lovely it would be if I captured the picture of the pouring water with the perfect sky-clouds-trees background. And snap! I loved it.

Hairos Waterpark is one of many water-parks in Medan. The facilities here are well maintained and the scenery is just great, all is green surrounding. It is a nice place to visit if you come to my beloved city, Medan.

Well, maybe this is the shortest post I’ve ever written for English Friday Challenge, but hopefully it’s still worth a read. 🙂

  1. I can see your passion in photography, Kak Icha 🙂 I hope that we can meet in Photography 101 course.
    Photography freezes the moment and that’s what you did in this photo. Love it!

      1. Glad to hear that 🙂 Btw Mba Mikan, have you ever attended Jacaranda festival? As far as I know, it’s usually held in Perth & Sydney in late spring Oct/Nov. CMIIW.

      2. Not yet Cha. I’ve not been to Perth but have been to Sydney a couple of times, just not in Spring. Perhaps I’ll try to catch it on my journey home through Perth. Why the curiosity on this festival?
