Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture



Barong is a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, and enemy of Rangda in the mythological traditions of Bali. Banas Pati Rajah is the fourth “brother” or spirit child that accompanies a child throughout life. Banas Pati Rajah is the spirit which animates Barong. A protector spirit, he is often represented by a lion, and traditional performances of his struggles against Rangda are popular parts of Balinese culture.



Rangda is the demon queen of the leyaks in Bali, according to traditional Balinese mythology. Terrifying to behold, the child-eating Rangda leads an army of evil witches against the leader of the forces of good – Barong.

Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

What inspire me to blog?

Actualy I am a visual person, and more interested to image than writing, so I often take pictures then writing. but one day I read a note from a friend, whether he was quoted out of nowhere, his writings like this: Without words, without writing and without books, there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.

Finally I thought, why do not I write about what I take, I do a lot of activity, join in 365 self portrait group, traveling, and it must be very nice if stated in writing, at least for me. So, my inspiration is my activities. ^___^
