Selasar (The Corridor)





Text and picture ©Eki Qushay Akhwan

As a city with predominantly Muslim population, Bandung has a lot of mosques. Many of these mosques have nice architecture. This one is the right wing corridor of the Al Furqon Mosque at the campus of the Indonesia University of Education. I took the picture today on my way to the Friday congregation prayer.

Thanks to you and others, I have fun trying to post things that may surprise some visitors; make others laugh a bit, but most of all make lots of people aware of things that might not know much about.

When somebody actually takes the time to write a comment on my blogs, about my work and what I do, that to me is the biggest gift a person can give another. It is like a smile on greeting; it is a welcome handshake, and it gives me and my family some hope that the funny farm is still in the future on down the road.

You, yourself, are an inspiration to me.

Such beautiful photography of beautiful things, like the hallway to the mosque and the Indonesian architecture, or your history—are almost like magic for me to see.

I could never be there any other way except through your choice of photographs. It is impressive indeed.

I come back to say, "thanks for visiting and leaving a comment" but a special thanks for taking the time to photograph interesting things of great beauty. Without that, blogging would be about as exciting as trying to scratch an itch in the right place at the wrong time.

So, thanks for stopping at my blog. And I hope you know, by now, that when you do, I will always try to visit your blog, in return, and leave a comment. I do read what people write and your excellent photography got my attention.

Sincerely,
