Vincent + Melissa BACKYARD-ing In Malang
Shot by Edward
Ever since Vincent and Melissa listened to me talking about my passion about this Backyard thingie here, they have gone through great lengths to make it happen. I just love them already just because of their willingness to believe in my vision. Even though they’re not from Malang, but they have some friends and colleagues there, so we decided that Malang it is.
I have never been to downtown Malang, just the suburbs visiting a friend’s house once. So we did a research on Google and put some waypoints on the ‘touristy’ places and we go from there. I must say that the city is gorgeous. It’s kinda like Bandung way back then before the invasion of the factory outlets (don’t you just miss that Bandung?). Lots of old colonial buildings. Old train stations. Not too heavy traffic. Shades provided by the high trees. Becaks. And what I love the most, cool weather.
Like I said, the pictures turned out gorgeous, right? Fresh look, that old city feel. Even the heavens approved: a very hansome dog was sent our way while we were shooting the becak scene.
So Vincent and Melissa, I know it took faith to see things that yet cannot be seen, so I thank you again for believing. I hope more will join the religion :)
