Photography 101: Home

The first theme of #Photo101 is Home. It’s quite late, actually, but please, do accept it.

My home. Its veranda, actually. Or is it called a porch? Either way, I just love spending my afternoon there, bathed in warm sunlight.

Walk closer and you’ll find this:

About the wall, oh, it’s from my father and his friend’s experiment. They want to make andesite-like material, for creating the walls just like…

Temples.

My mother surely got furious when she first heard the experiment. “Look, you made our house like a temple. It’s dusty, you know. Now who will clean all of this dust? You surely won’t want to, I know.”

“Hey, it’s art,” my father replied. “At least we could make this house looked… classic, as if it were built on 8th century.”

“Too classic,” I murmured.

“So you think this won’t do for our porch?” My father looked at me.

“I didn’t say that!”

Mother’s turn. “So you want to clean all of this mess?”

“Of course… what do you want me to do, mother, I’ll do.”

Of course in the end I didn’t do all that, as I shifted everything to my older sister.

Oh, how my home holds my heart!

And how I miss that kind of conversation, too.

          1. waaah baru yaa..tapi baguslah kaau selalu kangen buat pulang..

  1. Nuansa Bali-nya kental sekali ya.. itu dinding dengan ornamen sampai di dalam rumah kah ? unik, antik namun berkelas… like deh! juga halamannya sejuk dengan pepohonan rindang. bisa mampir gak ?

    1. Tidak Kak, hanya di terasnya saja. Dinding di dalam normal, kak, saya tak tahu apa yang akan dikatakan ibu saya kalau dinding seperti itu sampai ada di dalam rumah–bisa jadi candi betulan rumah saya itu.
      Tentu saja boleh! :hehe.

    1. 🙂 I love home improvement related matters so it seems like I spent a lil bit more time reading it. You’d be surprise Gara, there are also patio, deck, etc which are all different. Lol, I am weird 😀

  2. Really beautiful house Gara. Love it.
    The warmth of a house always made us want to go back home. But the warmth of its people is the main reason that it is called a home. *opo meneh iki*

    Abaikan. Tapi cantik. Perkarangannya. Warnanya. Semuanya bikin betah.

  3. I like minimalistic houses, but I like this type of house, too. Your father are right, your house is classic. The porch is a perfect place to sit while having an afternoon tea :).

    Nice photo, Bli Gara 🙂

    1. Iya, adem Kak. Siang-siang terik kami malah suka tidur-tiduran di teras, bukannya panas tapi malah sejuk :)).

      Terima kasih sudah berkunjung :)).

    1. Boleh :))
      Yap, ngobrol-ngobrol memang asyik. Melihat tanaman, dan, untuk saat-saat ini, ada tambahan ayam kate jejeritan ke sana kemari :hehe.
