Bandung Daily Photo's 3rd Anniversary - Interviewed and Featured by The BBC

Today Bandung Daily Photo (Bdg DP) is celebrating its 3rd Anniversary and also an honor which it has recently received from the BBC World.

Early last month, I received an email from the BBC's correspondent in Jakarta stating interest in Bandung Daily Photo and its resourceful content and asking if I would be interested in having an interview with their crew who was making a documentary film about Bandung for one of BBC's documentary programs, One Square Mile.

The filming took place a week later and the film will be aired worldwide this week. What an anniversary gift for Bandung Daily Photo! Thank you the BBC crew for having this honor of helping you in the making of the movie and for being featured in it.

Like in the prevous years, I would like to use this anniversary celebration opportunity to also thank our friends and visitors who have commented on Bandung Daily Photo's posts, given links and other kinds of support to make it more visible in the cyberspace. Last but not least, of course, I would also give a special thank to City Daily Photo for linking us - city daily photo bloggers - together and Eric of Paris Daily Photo who started this wonderful community.

Here are some photos I took of the film making.

Selamat ulang tahun yg ke-3 BDP! Sukses selalu pak! :)

Jadi ingat pertama kali saya tahu BDP waktu ketemu bapak di suatu sore sekitaran Wastukencana, 3 tahun yg lalu. Obrolan singkat, tapi langsung menarik perhatian saya ttg apa itu BDP, sampai akhirnya tertarik dgn BDP dan mengispirasi saya untuk memulai 'project' Sumedang Daily Photo...

I love Bandung! I love BDP! Hehehehe...


DIRGAHAYU Bandung Daily Photo!

Congratulations on appearing in that program with Karishma Vaswani. That's how I've found your blog after just viewing it on the BBC World News channel. It was good to hear what you had to say, and I'm now enjoying going through your posts. All the best from Santiago, Chile.
