Be Careful on Dreaming

Last night was LFM Awards, and as always, we had fun. The best part was that I got ‘The Most Innovative Photographer’ award. It was given to me because I constantly use my honestly-awful-and-terribly-adorable plastic cameras for shooting the life. Thank you very very much :) :)

It reminded me on one of my dreams when I joined LFM ITB (Liga Film Mahasiswa ITB), when I just bought my first lomo, Diana; that I want to learn & develop alternative photography.

It’s been a year, or more, and I’m doing it. I fell in love. Then that dream seems starting to come true. Insya Allah, I will participate in Festival April 2010 Photo Exhibition, with my Diana black and white shots. The concept is about ‘Desiring Body’. It’ll be held in Goethe Haus, Jl. Sam Ratulangi, Jakarta from 13th to 17th of April 2010 :)


I’m really really excited. Please come there as the festival would be really artsy and out of the box I think :D

The thing is actually not about how big the award or the exhibition. I read a lot of quotes about dreams. I listen a lot of songs and I saw some movies about them. You dream, it may just come true. I dream it, it may just come true. You dream to be famous, it may come true, but will it make you happy, you should start to think about it as well. You dream to be rich, it may come true, but is that it?

So dream wisely, people.

“Be careful what you set your heart upon – for it will surely be yours.”

    haha i’ve been interest about definition of hope, dream, desire and expectation for a long time. i believe people should have hope, dream, desire, expectation because it make people stay alive. so what hope is all about? if we should use it wisely?
    how, if someone told you not to make any hope about “things” or “people”?
    i don’t know, i think i’m gonna feel sad about that. how about u?

  2. well, i do think the fest fits with you… you have the talent and the basics to win the fest :D i like your shots, puty. may the success be with you :)

  3. selamat… selamat… kau pantas mendapatkannya…:)

    “Berhati-hatilah dengan yang kau inginkan”, bener banget… Jika kita benar2 menginginkan sesuatu, Tuhan akan mendengarnya dan menganggapnya sebagai doa. Karena Ia Maha Mendengar, maka Ia Mengabulkannya… :)

  4. Wish you all the best, Puty…
    Yeah, you’re so darn true… I’ll never stop dreaming and I wouldn’t let it remains dream only. :)
