Japanase Decoration Style on Cihampelas Walk

This is another photo at Cihampelas Walk on one of our visits to Bandung. I spotted this decoration when we strolled around the area. I think it is a Japanese style, because it reminded me of scenes in the Oshin serial. But I could be wrong about this. You can see right into a mall through those windows. The sepia effect made the view into them more 'disguised'. Here follows the original photo.


Thank you for hosting this great blog carnival, Mary

Hi Roshida - the decoration on your very interesting door reminds for of the Navajo medicine wheel symbol. Cross-cultural influences exist everywhere.

This is nice, without or without sepia. There is a complexity with all the linear shapes and the circles. It is a peek into a different culture, and it attracts attention well. A nice unique picture!

I like it in sepia, it gives it a mystical look.

The sepia sure gave it a different look. I like both.

The sepia looks great with the layout of the Japanese style doors :)

Robin said...

That's a mall? It looks much too interesting to be a mall LOL.

I agree with the others, too. Sepia was a great choice for this photo.

Patti said...

I like the shapes and patterns on the doors. Sepia adds interest to the photo.

I also like that you shared the original with us, to see how the sepia changes the photo.


Thanks for visiting my blog, Rosidah.
Enjoy your day.

I don't know what you call the style, but I'd definitely agree that sepia was the best choice here. I don't think even black and white would have done it as well and it's rare that I'll say that.

Great effect. Lovely mall!

Deb said...

I like both your images, the symetry adds to the shot

Tricia said...

Hi Rosidah! What a cool sepia post - I think the sepia matches the photo well!
Great job!

The sepia tinting gives a completely different feel from the original, it looks very "old" with the monochromatic effect.

How interesting and unusual! Works really well in sepia.

I like how the sepia version ages the photo making it seem as though it could have been taken many years ago.
