About 2 weeks ago Sakura Tunnel

This is the tunnel of cherry blossoms on my way to the office. I like this place because almost no one is there in the morning even though the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

通勤路にある桜のトンネル。毎年撮る。日が暮れると人がほとんどいないいから、のんびりできて気に入っている場所。今日も風が強かったけれど。

About 2 weeks ago River Of Cherry Blossoms

So many people have visited Naka-Meguro and enjoyed cherry blossoms. I did too. So many people have taken this angle, and I did too. I just couldn't help it.

中目黒の目黒川沿いはものすごい人出。宴会を開くスペースがないだけまし。たくさんの人が撮っているこのアングルを僕も撮る。去年も撮ったけれど、今年も撮る。このためだけに今日、今週で会社を去るという友人との飲み会の場所を、無理やり変更してここに寄り道した。

About 8 weeks ago Happy Valentine's Day!

I didn't expect to see cherry blossoms when I visited Atami, Shizuoka pref., so I didn't have a 105mm macro lens that I often use for flowers with me. But thanks to the 300mm lens I had mounted on the camera, I was able to capture this lovely moment. I didn't know that sparrows chew nectar from cherry flowers, by the way.

ハッピー・バレンタイン!

先日訪れた熱海では思いがけず満開の熱海桜に出あった。花を撮るなんて考えてもいなかったので、いつも使う105mmのマクロは家で留守番。でも、しかたなく付けていた300mmの望遠レンズのおかげで、可愛らしい瞬間をゲットすることができてラッキーだった。

いよいよ来週末から個展「東京未来都市」が始まるけれど、今日から「ことりふぉとぐらふぁー」になることに(←嘘)。肩書は+Takafumi Ooshioさんのものをパクりました。

About 10 weeks ago Tokyo Skytree under the Moon

I took a photo of Tokyo Skytree under the clear sky, which will be displayed at +Island Gallery during the group exhibition starting this weekend. After I packed my gear, clouds flew in and the expression of the sky changed. Why not unpack the gear and take another shot? That't what I did.

雲のない夜空の下でスカイツリーを写真に収めた(その写真は今週末に +Island Galleryで始まるグループ写真展に展示される)。撮影後、機材をしまい帰路へ……と思ったら、雲がスーッと流れこんで空の表情が変わった。もちろん、機材をまた取り出して再撮影。

About 8 weeks ago White Tokyo

We had another heavy snow last weekend. I've never experience such heavy snow in my life. This is the view of Shinjukku, Tokyo the day after the snowy day. The roofs of the buildings were still covered with snow and it looked brighter than usual.

先週末の雪は、東京に生まれ育って初めて体験した吹雪。夜中に室外機の調子が悪くて見に出たら遭難するかと思った。これはその一日後の新宿定番の都庁からの風景。日が暮れても東京はいつもより明るかった。

About 2 weeks ago Time, Please Stop / 時間よ止まれ そして、感謝の言葉

Flowing clouds, Shivering water,
Struck by the beautiful morning sky,
Time, please stop,
I will never leave your side.

流れる雲、揺れる水面
夜明けの空に心打たれる
時間よ止まれ
僕は君のそばを離れない

----------------------
