enter the memories

The calmness caught me completely by surprise. The sky was clear as the sun beat down relentlessly. In my giddiness, I sucked in the surroundings and wished the world was this calm. As I walked past yesterday's pillar, the actual entrance of the memorial stood before me. Behind it is where the Tugu itself stands. The statue of the 7 soldiers. I haven't been here since I took some friends on the usual touristy thing (seems a lifetime ago.) And something's changed. I didn't know what it was. I knew I would find out with every step I made. With my camera resting on my hip, I walked towards this entrance I now show you...

Hey Eddie! ;-)

Awesome set of pix the past few days....siiiiiiiiiiiiiigh~ Been so busy with stuff I haven't even been able to COMMENT, LAH! LOL!

Anyway, love the blue of the sky and the simple balance and symmetry of the shots...

Your technical savvy is definitely starting to "shrine" thru!

Good luck on your rehearsing! Wish I could come see ya in action, ooooo! Lights & Camera!

Some scene from a movie, this is the feeling I get. The light and the shape misteriouly relaxes and tempts you into discovering what's inside. Some scifi movie...I wouldn't tell you which, I can't remember...I am falling hypnotized.

Good evening/afternoon/morning, Edwin! (in between skyping to Mexico & New Zealand, and knowing it's almost lunchtime here, I'm confused on time-zones today).
What is it about onion-domes' Eternally fascinating, but this pic shows such a different architectural mix. Beautiful composition, exudes peace. And those clouds...that was a polarizer opp!

Ame, you busy issit? Love your comment on how I'm 'shrining' LOL!

Carlos, I get what you mean. Everytime I look at this picture, I fantasize about some alien place. It must've been the calmness. Such a solace from the city.

Sally, Kris and Nowhere, what is it about domes that is so alluring? I find myself drawn too.

Selana, yes, the tripod was involved! ;) My legs were wobbly from the sight.

Thanks guys. I didn't expect this shot to get this many favourable comments. yeah, peaceful...

Wow... very impressive building, and you know how to shoot it well! The steps in front give the landscape a very off kilter feeling to it.
