Night Photo Walk : Cikaracak Festival Amusement Park


Yesterday, I just got back home and I found this tweet on my time line :


Cikaracak Festival? What's that? They said there will be a Big Wheel, Carousel, and Kora-Kora in Taman Hewan, which just 10 minutes ride from home. Take a peek on their website, it seems this festival is part of their society empowerment program. Organized by ITB students. Hmm.. looks like this going to be an interesting night photo walk. Crank up ISO to 3200 and let's go..

Wow.. they're not kidding! The Big Wheel is truly standing there. Taman Sari citizens are very excited to ride the wheel, including this cute little baby.

This night photo walk is more enjoyable than last time in Braga Culinary Night. Scenes are sufficiently lit and not too crowded. Use of manual focus lens was intentional to sharpen my tactile skill.
