The view from Salt

I am told that Salt is a rather well know restaurant - that may well be the case, but such things are beyond me!

I am just back from a week in Jakarta - its the first time I have done a trip like this an not taken any meaningful photographic gear - the schedule was pretty hectic, even if I did end up with a spare morning on Friday.

This picture was taken from Salt, and is not even taken wth my phone!

Typically, there was a lightning storm over Jakarta as we were eating dinner, which would have been great to try and capture!  I think I need to get a compact of some kind!


You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Wow, what a view! Yes, I frequently struggle with whether or not to take my big, heavy DSLR. No question that I get better photos when I do. But I'm often pretty happy just using my iPhone.

Oh that is beautiful, i recall my shot when we had lunch at the top floor in Yangon, Myanmar. I bought the Olympus micro 4/3 specifically for its lightweight, and now i also use the phone often which is very handy!

Wow ... as I am a little nervous about heights, the beauty of this view is tempered by the thoughts of vertigo that would go with it if I were actually there.

I have had that same sensation as I sit and view something that I wish I could capture on my camera if I had it with me ... frustration :) Yes a smaller more manageable version would be a great idea. Some of the small camera's and even phones take great pictures ... sometimes better than a big SLR, so you really can't go wrong ... I say, go for it, Stewart. Expand your horizons :)
