In the occasion, the student, admitting that she began occupying photography after joining FOTKA, displayed a photo of a house formed a camera taken in Magelang, Central Java. The photo was shown since “the camera house” was a silent witness of the owner who was eager to have DSLR camera, finally obtained laboriously.
