TAG Heuer Carrera 16


tag_heuer_carrera16.jpg

I catalogued around 100 luxury watches last week. Among which was this TAG Heuer with custom bracelet. A beautiful chronograph, it has a self winding automatic movement. As with any other TAG Heuer, the dial window is made from sapphire-crystal.

I’ve always love TAG Heuer since it was still a TAG company, and like this masterpiece as well but there was a really cool and much simpler Rolex Explorer II in the collection that I would have prefered, if offered. Thehehehe!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

the Yurikamome line


Tokyo train

Yurikamome line is a train route connecting Tokyo to Odaiba through the Rainbow Bridge. It provides a scenic view of the surrounding, like this one taken late in the afternoon. B-)

I used the WCL with my X100f to get that little extra view from the wider angle.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week ahead!

dark clouds over Istiqlal


Istiqlal

The largest in Southeast Asia and the fourth largest in the world, the Indonesian national mosque Istiqlal was built between 1961 and 1978. The name, in Arabic, means Independence. Its architect, Frederich Silaban, is a Christian Protestant. His design of the mosque was chosen by Soekarno, the Indonesian president back then.

This picture was taken using the built-in digital teleconverter of X100f.

Thank you all for stopping by and have a great week ahead.

the towers of Jakarta Cathedral


Towers of Jakarta Cathedral

I was going to post it on my Instagram as part of a series, but then I thought to post this particular frame here first in full glory. Using the digital teleconverter of Fuji X100f, it did the job pretty good, don’t you think?

Have a blessed Sunday all and thank you for stopping by.

almost a self portrait

Fisrt of all, this is not a selfie. I was coaching my friend and apprentice Wendy. She wanted to get ready for her next vacation with better than usual pictures (of her and her gang, but I think mostly of her). So I brought her on a photo-walk day.

When we took a break and had lunch in this not-that-bad Historia Food and Bar (warning: they allow smokers) in the old Jakarta area, she held my X100-f and played a while with it. And took a few shots through the LCD.

This particular frame that she did, I think is one of the best she took. Not because I was in the frame, but because it captured the atmosphere of the restaurant. This frame also showed that the X100-f can easily be used by newbies, and the seven different settings that we can preset really is a big help.

And if you ask, yes, this is an SOOC frame in JPEG, acros simulation. Well, except that I corrected the horizontal level and perspective in Lr, and did a little cropping.

Thank you all for stopping by, oh and thank you Wendy for this lovely shot!
