I love the Beatles, I really love them in 1960's, I love to see John stays like in that year forever. You know The Beatles, which the world called it as a legend. There are too many controversies about them, even If I stand both of with my closed ears and eyes, against the controversy, I still can realize. It is like they come through the wind, covering up your mind. I'm happy that I love Beatles. It is simply because of that. I don't want to be just too curious about their troubles, exploring their businesses and mysteries one by one. It is not because I'm afraid, but knowing their every single troubles won't change any of my attention to them, so that's useless. 

I'm a fan of Beatles, I can't say if I'm a big fan of them or not, because everything seems to be relative if you just try to explain things like, are you a bigger fan than The Beatles's other fans? what actually "big" means to people? I won't make it clear.

As a fan, I don't put more curiosity of their troubles, it might be confusing and weird, but just like what John Lennon says on the picture below, it is weird not be weird, simple as that. Thank you :)

Inspiration Today: Photographer | Nicole L. Hill

Nicole L. Hill is a fashion photographer based out of Los Angeles. I cannot describe much about her works because as you all know a very good photo is like a good joke, you can't find any suitable word about how to explain it. One thing that I know is, I am so inspired, too much addicted to her works. I feel like she's giving me a freedom through the photos and presenting the look of the combination between the woman's beauty and nature in art. As the fashion photographer, Nicole has also been successfully showing the power of woman by her model, not only by the style they wear but also through the gesture of the expression. I have to say that I'm falling the most for this one, the tones of her works are all wonderful, they come up with a very natural way, they are strong, bold but still mild.

And here are some works from someone that I called an inspiring fashion photographer, Nicole L. Hill

Nicole ever said something that I think as a "gorgeous" tough, I just checked her Tumblr when someone asked her what's the tips to have very great colors and lights like she did on her photos, and she simply answer;
"Study Photoshop as much as you can. Photoshop is a MAGICAL tool, use it and play until you find something you like!"

That is absolutely great I think, when you can easily find many people out there who say that using Photoshop to adjust/edit the photos is like a sin in photography, but here you can see the truth that Nicole as a professional photographer has a very humble way to think about the function of Photoshop. I really appreciate her thoughts about it, for me a great photo is not about the tools or the media behind it. The most important thing in photography is the story behind the every photo we take. A great photo is when you can successfully tell everybody about the story/ message behind your photo, no matter by what and how you create it. So that, I always think there's nothing wrong about the every photos because they will always have their own stories. Well finally, I understand that the world is still free, you can agree with me or not because I never expected to bring any influence to people about my opinion here :). 

These photos above were mostly from her Facebook pages, Nicole-L-Hill-Photography. Once again, thank you so much Nicole L. Hill for being an inspiration for me and for all the people out there, keep independent and natural! and for being inspired further, you can see more from her on:

I don't know is there any relation or not, between this post and its title. I was only inspired by one of the Coldplay's songs, Amsterdam, because I just listened to that song while editing and uploading this post. Moreover, the song just has been repeatedly played for so many times B-), so I could remember the word "Amsterdam" very very well. Anyway, thanks Coldplay for being my life soundtrack today, and these are the whole look of my latest outfit yesterday, wearing the warmly color of trousers and my own DIY knit bag made by my dearest mom. Here we go!

Plaid Shirt - Double-Cw, Gray Cardigan- unbranded, Knit Bag- DIY, Tan Trousers - ITC Mangga Dua (@Glitters), Military Boots - CAT
God put a smile upon your face!

If you realize, you can mention those stories on the picture below :P. So, which pictures?

What's so special about yesterday are, I was finally having the quality time with the people who always successfully able to make me laugh and it would always dramatically turn to be something really special because my time for my friends is very limited. Well. these are the photos of the common things that we usualy do in such greetings. I ordered the photos randomly and this is what I mean about the common things, took the photos as much as we can ;p hehe

Much love! <3

Animal Instinct

I've got the fullest head, world is starting to fight again. There are too many things inside my head, never let me down. Well at least I know, it wasn't wrong to be puzzled sometimes. Anyway, here are the latest look from me, can you mention the three animals here? nothing to be symbolized, it wasn't planned before. I never think about bringing those animal into fashion products or whatever, it came spontaneously from my mind. Well, thank you, just enjoy and good night! :)
