An old cigarette street vendor was sitting on railroad in sleepy mode, waiting for customers. Life is tough, though.
A tiger doll in vacation is inside my refrigerator, trying to eat my mung beans. This is my contribution in this busy week of Weekly Phone Challenge, Inside.
This week’s challenge is Macro. One night in train station on the way home, I spotted an insect, which I believe Leptocorisa oratorius, or commonly known as slender rice bugs. Both the adults and nymphs feed on grains at the milking stage. They are a serious pest of rice and can reduce yield by as much as 30%. This kind of insect is easily found in Australia, Bhutan, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia (including New Guinea), Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Tonga, and Vietnam. The pungent odor of the rice bug signifies its presence. Its slender and elongated body can identify the insect. When disturbed, the nymphs drop to the lower part of the plants and the adults fly within a short distance. In Bahasa Indonesia, we call the insect as Walang Sangit, that comes from Javanese. Walang means Belalang in Bahasa, grasshopper in English. Sangit means a disturbing odor.
Now, let’s see the text behind the bugs. The text mentions a law that control air pollutant. In this case, to remind smoker to not smoke in the train station area. But should we capture the bug as well since its odor is also a kind of air pollutant? Well, a natural one 😀
This week’s challenge is Perspective. In this posting, we can see that cropping can change your perspective of a picture. In this picture, I try to present you a different perspective by rotating and applying a tilt shift effect on a picture. The picture was taken using iPhone 5 and edited using Fotor for Windows 8.
Now, let’s take a look the original picture:
Technology, can change your perspective 🙂
This first Monday challenge is Nature. This picture I took from my old man’s graveyard. His last journey has a beautiful view, a mount in Central Java, Indonesia, which he has climbed for about three times. The mount is called Gunung Slamet. Gunung means mount, and Slamet is a Javanese word, means safe. I took the picture using my S4 and edited a bit the saturation using Fotor.
This week’s challenge is Abandoned. I took the picture with my iPhone when jogging several days ago near my home. Probably the constructor/developer got problem in funding or so. Too bad actually, so many people need affordable housing like this.
