Skywatch: Bandung's November Sky





This is what Bandung's sky has been like this past week. It has either been rainy or heavily cloudy. The rainy season has set in and seems to be in full swing now.

The tower in the above photo, by the way, is the minaret of Bandung Grand Mosque (Mesjid Raya Bandung) at Asia Afrika Street. And oh, the baloon next to it is an advertising baloon. It advertises "PT. Pegadaian" - Indonesia's state-owned pawn shop.

Bandung's Sky - Paris's Sky are the same these days. Thankfully you get this tower and baloon which gives a wonderful effect in your picture. Like the angle you took this picture.

Oh, excuse me. I haven't read until the end. It is the minaret of a mosquee.
To be closer to the Sky.

Very nice Skywatch today Eki. What about the balloon? Did I miss that ? The mosque is lovely.

Eki: That is a really neat capture of the mosque into the sky.

Cool picture!! Our skies in Maryland have been gray and cloudy all week too. Sun today though.

Fabulous shot, Eki! Love the minaret and the balloon adds a touch of whimsy — as long as you can't see the advertising banner well. ;D

Happy SkyWatching!

Very interesting. I love cloudy days and I think the rain is not too far behind.

great picture, sir.

Share my point of view... said...

I feel that the balloon sort of stresses out how rather tall the minaret is.

Interesting combination of things here.
You really have a state-owned pawn shop? Well, why not, I guess. :)
