So from Hong Kong we flew to Jakarta, Indonesia (Feb 21). And in Jakarta we battled traffic gridlock, ate some amazing food, filmed our first cinema wedding together, haggled for batik shirts, drank too much beer, discovered a band named Slank, and amidst all of that made new friends.
Our trip to Indonesia was timed to attend the wedding of my friend Dwiko and his fiancee (now wife!) Feby. Dwiko is a talented photographer whom I met while in India while helping with City of Lakes; we kept in touch after that, and met up again when I was in England this past summer. Closer to the wedding date, I was honored when Dwiko asked if I would shoot cinema at his wedding.
We really don’t have many photos from Jakarta to post here. Dwiko and Feby’s wedding was a multi-day celebration, so we have plenty of cinema, but that’s backed up on three hard drives (just to be safe!) until we get back home to edit it all. Plus we were busy shopping for clothing for the wedding, celebrating Dwiko’s upcoming marriage with buckets of Heineken and free t-shirts at the Beer Garden, and hanging out with the rest of Dwiko and Feby’s friends who had flown in for the wedding – Hanne, Vinny, Pete, and Angga – all hailing from different parts of the world.
So here are a few random photos from our 5 days in Jakarta.
