ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS





Time for some more original photographs.... I find these photographs on second hand markets while hunting for tapes and records, I almost never know when or where they were taken or who's in them and when they catch my eye I want them, many of them are from the 40's, 50's, 60's and I sit and look at them, wondering, "who are you? what happened with you? how did you get through all those crazy years here in Indonesia?

These four photographs.... Looks like they were shooting a movie maybe? Looks like late 60's, early 70's.....


An original photograph of The Blue Diamonds.... Maybe when they were playing in Indonesia?


mean looking soldier with a red beret, Kopassus maybe?



On the back it's written "Me and the kids, Lady and Darja"... And there's a date, 1 - 7 - 50 .....











A whole bunch of random photographs.....



And ending this post with two photographs of a very striking, beautiful lady......

enjoy!
