Title : “An Old Lady Is Weaving A Fish Net”
As A Winner Shot By Mi Awards 2021 :
I Love photography since I was in Junior high, My father tought me how to make a great picture at that moment, and he tought me how to use pocket cameras and DSLR cameras. During this pandemic, I tried to make photos with smartphones, I used Redmi 6 Pro, which is used by my mother. However, she died last year, maybe this is the sustenance of her smartphone to use it in a positive way.”
The story behind the photo:
The photo was taken when I came to a tourist village in Bogor, Indonesia, to a venue used to introduce Indonesia’s culture, especially that of West Java. There were people doing Silat, Making Umbrellas, Pottery, Drying cloth, and Making Fish Nets.
