Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Odd-eyed cat

Odd-eyed cat

I got surprised when I saw a strange cat a couple of weeks ago. It was my first time to see a cat with different eye color, blue and yellow. Then I searched information about this at the internet and I found that the cat called “odd-eyed cat”.

The odd-eyed coloring is caused when either the epistatic (dominant) white gene (which masks any other color genes and turns a cat completely white) or the white spotting gene (which is the gene responsible for bicolor and tuxedo cats) prevents melanin (pigment) granules from reaching one eye during development, resulting in a cat with one blue eye and one green, yellow, or brown eye. The condition only rarely occurs in cats that lack both the dominant white and the white spotting gene.(Source)

I took this picture when I accompanied my mother to a traditional market. I saw the cats cage in front of a material store.

Have you ever seen this kind of cat, Pals?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Menurutku foto ini cukup sesuai dengan tema tantangan kali ini, Renewal. Saat aku membuka pintu depan rumahku, aku melihat seekor kucing tetangga sedang tidur siang dengan damainya di atas pijakan depan pintu.

Rasanya aku perlu memperoleh kembali tenaga baru, melalui istirahat. Tampangku sudah kusut, kelopak mata mengantung akibat kesibukan kemarin. Tetapi, tetap saja godaan ngeblog itu ada. Blogwalking dulu aah… ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

Actually that was my motorcycle. I named it “Beib”. It used to be mine. I owned it for about ten years. I thought ten years is a quite long time to have a motorcycle. Some people told me that the maintenance of an old motorcycle will cost much money.ย So, I decided to sell it.ย Too bad the price was too cheap.

Now, it’s no longer mine. I have a new one, an automatic. Alhamdulillah ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

I took this picture in my niece’s college, last year. I loved the bridge and I tried to capture it including the view of a multifunctional building at the left side. But suddenly a college student walked on the bridge. I think this picture has become quite nice because of his appearance. I almost can feel the spirit of young student that wishing a bright future. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my “solitary“, what’s yours? :mrgreen:

Weekly Photo Challenge : Everyday Life

The above picture is a meatball noodle seller. His name is Herry. He come to my work place almost everyday. I and my friends love to eat what he sold. When another meatball noodle sellers came by to my work place, we just ignored them.

My friend said, “let’s just wait for Herry.”

Want some meatball noodle, Guys? The price is only Rp 6.000 ๐Ÿ˜€

This weekly photo challenge is getting more interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

The above picture was taken a few months ago, when I was in a mosque. I was attracted with the pretty lights that attached on the pillars of the mosque’s corridors. Then I took a picture using my old cell phone, Sony Ericsson K610i, with 2MP built-in camera.

The above picture is my interpretation of this ย weekly photo challenge: near and far. How about yours, Guys? ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Photo Challenge : Urban

I took the above photo at one of Samarinda street one afternoon when I went to work. A garbage truck was moving a large bins that are full of rubbish, to be taken to the place of final landfill. This scene is quite familiar to citizens of Samarinda City. I think the same thing is also happening in other cities in Indonesia. We really knew about how aromas burst. Wearing a mask, cover your nose with a hand, or hold your breath for a few seconds, can help reduce aroma that entering the nose.

This weekly photo challenge is so interesting. I hope I’ve chosen the ‘urban enough’ picture.
