Those are pictures I took on the ship which was taking me back to Jakarta. I wanted to take more pictures, but I realized the result were, at best, inadequate in comparison to what I perceived at that moment. Maybe it’s because my phone was incapable to capture the moment; it’s not a DSLR; but maybe it’s because of something else. The scent of the ocean, the movement of the clouds and sea, the motion of the ship, the wind, the whole experience; pictures can’t emulate such thing. So, I guess I decided to stop taking more photos and just dwelled at that moment.
As an extra, I would also like to share some story about my vacation on that island. Perhaps calling it a vacation is inaccurate. It took hours to get there. The main program in the itinerary was visiting relatives, which involved hours of conversation I don’t really fancy to participate in. A high level of precipitation. And that’s it. Oh, did I mention the blackout? I experience multiple blackouts on my stay there.
Did I enjoy my “vacation”?
I don’t like the notion of breaking the illusion that I’m an optimistic kind of guy, so I will say: yes (with a forced smile)
Oh, did I not tell you what are those pictures above? It’s Bakaheuni Port, Southern Sumatra. I went to Lampung.
