Where the days have gone

Struck by how fast the time has passed and wondering where were those memories we had, it is always a pleasure if you can look back to what you have done in all those years. This post doesn’t mean to be a documentary but rather loose notes or fragments we can view again and again. Nearly 25 years living on this continent is for us not just a quick rendezvous, but we jumped into the waters and live within. There those days goes, as something always to remember until the point when everything will pass away.

  13. Januartha Says:

    Great album. Burcht Leiden, The Netherlands is my fav

  14. bram antareja Says:

    I am also happy with photography. And I always put the human element at the highest place in photography. I am very happy to see this photo album, because in every picture there is always a human element. Humans can live a different hemisphere, but humans everywhere always laughing, smiling, expression, activity, romance as well as one with nature and much more. This is the power of Jos Runarka and Ambarum Sari’s Blog. Proficiat … Brader and sista. Greetings from Yogyakarta City, Indonesia.

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear mas Bram,

      yes you are truly correct! Humans are the same everywhere. Pick what they possessed and let them happy, they behave nearly the same. Old-young, rich-poor, every race, educated-non educated, etc…We can say that, because we saw that. It is a privilege for us to see that.

      Thank you very much for visiting and leaving your impressions on our blog.

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Agus,

      you should leave your camera if you don’t have the feeling to catch a moment, but when the desires are there then you should go out walking and take your camera. Thank you for your impressions!

      Best regards,

      Sari & Jos

    What a fascinating series. A very rich tapestry of people and places portrayed cleanly in black and white. I see the pictures and feel both there and not there. The moments I feel there is when I see the people acting through their lives at that moment. All of them just going about there lives and doing their thing. But when I feel not there the impression is even stronger. As if I am looking at a place from the recent past say 20 or 30 years ago. The feelings from that are even more powerful. Fantastic series.

    • Jos Runarka Says:

      Dear Timothy,

      first of all we are pleased to see you here again. Second, it is interesting how our pictures awaken different emotions to the viewer. Thank you very much for your kind words and honest impressions!

      Best regards,

      Sari & Jos
