Revisiting Tegal Wangi beach in Bali with 35mm film

Have I told you that Tegal Wangi beach of Jimbaran is my most favorite beach in Bali?

I always astonished by Tegal Wangi and its surroundings. The white sands, golden texture of the cliffs covered by the thick vines and the best part it, the sunset. I can feel connected to them and become easily happy.

On my last visit to Tegal Wangi last March, I took one of my favorite analog cameras with me. Visiting back the beach I really love somehow made me feel odd, especially when capturing some photos over there.

You can say it can be difficult as I have to find other angle, point of view, or whatsoever to make my photographs different than the hundred times I shoot before. Actually, I don’t give a damn on it. Just point and shoot, point and shoot, point and shoot, always repeat.

Taking an analog camera to the beach

The camera I took with me was the Olympus mju ii analog camera. Some people said it is the ultimate point and shoot film camera. Indeed, for me this camera is really helpful as i only need a little practice to get used to its focusing mechanism. At the other side the 35mm with f2.8 max aperture lens for me is one of the best that a compact camera can give. And the best thing I love from this camera is it is smaller and easier to hold than my phone.

I used the camera with Kodak Gold 200 film. For me it was not the best film to take to the beach or for panoramic photograph. I don’t really like the tone his goldie gave to the sky, the leaves or tree, even to the beach sands. Fortunately, I had Indah with me. Her human skin tone combines with those natural things fixed all my dissatisfaction.

So here they are! Some photos from Tegal Wangi beach captured by my compact Olympus mju-ii camera with Kodak Gold 200 film inside.

That day before sunset I’d never forget.

Hey blue sky, do you feel greener like the leaves now? Let your feet touch the sand, maybe you can feel your skin.

Never felt this (g)old. Never felt this bold.

Spending more than two weeks of my working days from mid-August to early September at Gelora Bung Karno area for covering the 18th Asian Games, I realized the Aquatic Stadium is currently my favorite spot in Jakarta. I can't count how many times I visited this Aquatic Stadium after I finished my work during the Games. . It was not about my pride to my country for being a good host of this second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games and not about how I amazed by this newly revamped venue. I simply loved to see the water at Aquatic Stadium and how the athletes can befriend with it-especially at the 10 m platform diving-and became the champions. . I remember one month before Asian Games began, Mother asked me to try swimming at this new stadium. We did not make it, as the stadium has been closed for public. After that, just one week before the Games ended, I bought her two tickets to see the artistic swimming, as I knew she would love to see the game. But again, I failed to accompany her to see it since I was assigned to another venue outside GBK. . Now, I am still planning to take Mother to swim at this Aquatic Stadium. To feel swimming like the champions because why not. . #IndohoyShraya @indohoy @shraya_kulture
Behind your favorite selfie spot, maybe some kids are also waiting for their favorite playground that occupied. And finally move to another spot. . . #belitung #trip #travel #explorebelitung #explorebabel #letsgosomewhere #passionpassport #wanderlust #wanderfolk #stayandwander #folkscenery #folkindonesia #livefolkindonesia #livefolk #liveauthentic #wonderfulindonesia #getaway #escape #createscenery #moodygrams #instatravel #travelgram #words #darlingescapes #exploremore #sonya6000 #sonyforher #beach #islandlife
