Friday Shoot Out: Random

Friday, June 05, 2009
Thanks to Robyn at An Alaskan Family for this week's assignment :

Something that everyone has in their neck of the woods, so I guess I want to go with Random, everyone give us your specialty, or what makes you happy in pictures.

Of course, family is one of my greatest happiness in life. But, I was thinking more about random colors, numbers and shapes you can find in my town or country when preparing for Robyn's assignment. So, these are a few random photos I came up with.

We are always happy when we go on vacation. Well, I guess who wouldn't be. The following photo shows some random boats at the lake Situ Patenggang in Bandung. Can you see the words "harapan" written on one of the boats? It means "hope" in Indonesia.

Viewing mother nature is always a great bliss. Even fallen petals can look beautiful. I have found these random red petals laying on the ground in the living area of my parents in laws.

Flowers give away a sense of joy. That's why almost every happy occasion will have some of them featured as decoration. Like these random flowers here at my husband's cousin wedding ceremony.

The happiness of children is also the happiness of every parent. At least, I think that most parents would feel this way. So, here are some random things that make my children happy.

Random wooden whirligig sold near the school

Random accessories and toys sold near the school

Random plastic toys at the local mall

Random swim equipments at the local pool

Random hats at Safari Garden

Random rupiah coins for savings

Random knitting yarn for handicrafts from the local mall
(these actually make me happy)

The following last two photos don't actually show what our town or country has to offer, but they are also random and I like the colors.

Random Uno Cards to play at home

Random wooden pattern blocks

Rosidah, these are incredible! I love how you play with color and volume! The picture of the boats is probably my favorite - I love all things related to the sea! The equipment at the swimming pool was also very cool, as were ALL of them!
Thanks for stopping by my place. I really appreciate that a lot!

I love the shot of the tops. I've never played with them before, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to spin them at all with my klutz mode on :P

Inday said...

Everything is randomly given not with a random heart but unrandomly unconditional love with all that is Random. Great post Rosidah. Thanks for visiting me. My daughter told me that she read your name in Skywatch Friday.

Wow! Love your selection of random shots - I see lots there that would work for the Color Carnival too! :-)

Michele said...

Such pretty colors make me smile. I often seek out colors when I'm feeling down because it lifts my spirits, this is one of those posts that left me flying high... very nicely done!
