- If I feel like travelling to the far east of Indonesia, I grind beans from Papua. I will then savour a clean-tasting, well balanced and slightly sweet coffee.

Today I felt it was a «portrait lens» day. A 75 mm Summarit f 2.4 to be exact..
If I feel in a distanced disposition, I will attach a 21 or a 28 mm lens. If I feel in a more normal (whatever that means) state, I will mount a 50mm lens.
Today, I was in a close-up mindset. I felt I wanted to get close to people so I decided to use a 75mm lens. I am often shy when I approach people in Solo, especially that I do not communicate very well in Indonesian language. The 75 mm portrait lens forces me to break the barrier of intimacy.
Before taking a last sip of Toraja coffee, enjoying its crisp refreshing taste and smooth finish I had decided to go out and «oblige myself» to come closer to the people. I was in a « portrait lens » mood.
