I have been living and roaming around Jakarta for about 25 years but never really paid attention on capturing the city in photographs. Not until this summer.

It started when my husband and I were walking on one of the crossing bridges at the main street of Jakarta, on our way to the insurance company one Tuesday afternoon. We parked our car at Le Meridien Hotel, and then crossed the street. I remember it was cloudy, and we had quite a serious conversation about our small investment. Then I looked to the right and saw this rare view of my city. I grabbed my Blackberry and took this picture right away.
