CDPB January 09 Theme Day Post: Best Photo of 2008



First of all, Happy New Year to you all. May this year be a peaceful and prosperous year for us all.

This month's CDPB theme is the Best Photo of 2008. Frankly speaking, I was having a hard time choosing which photo was the best for 2008, but after much consideration, I came to the decision that the above photo should be Bandung Daily Photo's best for 2008. And here's why ...

This photo was one of the three photos I put in my first post. The decision to start BANDUNG DAILY PHOTO is, I think, one of the best things I did in 2008. With this blog, I have come to know a good many friends from many parts of the world: you! With this blog, I've also played my part to help introduce to the world the city of which I am a proud citizen of: Bandung.

This photo, by the way, is of two child entrepreneurs selling pet rabbits at Gasibu Square (Lapangan Gasibu) Sunday market.

I must confess I wondered for a time if the rabbits were the ingredients in some future stew. ;-)

Have a great new year, I'm looking forward to visiting your site often!

A Death In The Blogger World

A blogger friend lost her husband suddenly last Sunday night. I thought it would be nice to go and leave a message for her on her blog...You may know her as 'mommanator' at grannies ramblings

It's a great choice. Tells such a story and also means so much to you being your first photograph on your blog. I love a slice of life like this.

Happy New Year to you!

I wondered which photo you would choose from among so many worthy images. THis is a gorgeous example of why I think you are a master of street photography. You always bring us the sheer joy of being alive, even when just doing simple things. I enjoy all of your work -- and some of your architectural shots are truly breathtaking -- but it's the street shots that stick in my head and touch my heart.

Beautiful, Eki! May the new year bring peace, happiness, love and prosperity. I'm so glad to count myself among your blogging friends.
