Hotel Poolside

Hotel poolside, originally uploaded by ihsankhairir.

This is the swimming pool at the Hills Hotel Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Indonesia.

The pool is well-maintained and there are lots of poolside chairs with shade, and there's a reflexology and massage service provided.

Next to the pool is a small playground for kids and there's even a small slide (partially in the picture) that goes into the pool.

For all the days that I was there, I haven't seen anyone using the pool, although there are times I've seen children with towels and wet hair in the elevator (I assumed they played in the pool earlier).

I went to the pool two times: once during the day to snap photos like this one, and once at night for some long exposure photos.

Maybe sometime, I'll share the long exposure photos here. Only the nice ones though, long exposure is not something that I have truly mastered and it usually takes me quite a number of tries before I get a decent shot.

But for now, this one shot of the pool will do. Tell me if you want to see other shots of the pool ;)

  4. David:

    Thank you David. I am still a newbie learning the works. As you might probably have guessed, I took numerous shots of the place before getting one that I think turned out well like this one...
