I hope you will spend some time to read this story all the way (it's too long for a caption, so I'll put another parts in the comment section). Sabrina Vlaskalic and Jonnit Douwes’ performance is exceptional (especially hers). Maybe that’s it from my review of their one hour and eleven minutes concert this night, because our encounter after the show is way more significant for me to tell, I think.
Here we go. The concert was finished. They both walked out of stage (after bowed several times to the audience), and greeted by dozens of fans who wanted to take a picture together. “It’s a custom here, yeah?” Sabrina inquired to some people after realizing that everyone offered a handshake before asked for a quick photograph. She’s so, so kind and humble. I mean it, for real. That’s rare for people like her. I mean, she’s very extraordinary, talented, and excellent. It seems like I’m a brown-noser for saying that, but no. It’s hard to write my impressions of her, you know? You have to see her performs for yourself.
To be honest, I even wondered why do they come all the way here to Bandung at the first place! I mean, she’s a very appreciated performer seen throughout Latin America and Europe, was known with prizes of brilliance, and was freaking accepted at the University of Music Art in Belgrade at the age of 16! Man, that’s fucking dope, you feel me? There’s so much to learn from her modesty! Like, people (I, for example) sometimes are so overbearing of what they learnt and accomplished. She’s not! At all!
She said that this is their first time in Bandung. They’ve performed at Yogyakarta and Jakarta before, and thanking us all for being such a nice spectator. Dude, I tell you: I can feel that she’s absolutely genuine. A lot of times I met with some fraudulent people who say a ton of nice things. Only few are free from pretense or deceit (especially when they talk). Truthfully, I believe Sabrina is one in a million.
I have no idea when world photography day is but for me it is everyday. I love nothing more than grabbing my #Canon7d and heading to the beach, the hills or just down the street. I couldn't afford an expensive camera but a photographer friend of mine recommended the Canon 7d and I was able to pick a lightly used one up for $550 so I was happy I'm not a professional or even a great amateur but I'm learning and loving every moment. I'm learning about lenses and lighting and watching great photographers work their magic. I love it because it gives me a goal and a dream to work towards. I had to retire early from my work as a therapist due to disability and I've always loved studying human behaviour your and now I study the world through the eye of the lens and there is nothing more beautiful in the world to me.
