About 6 weeks ago A Portrait of a Cat

I seldom take and post photos of cats. Actually cats always run away when I try to shoot them. But the one I met today didn't move and posed at all, which gave me enough time to focus on it manually with the Petzval lens.

猫の写真はめったに撮ったり投稿したりしない。僕が犬派だから……ではなく、撮ろうとするとたいてい逃げるからだ。でも、今日はめずらしく、それもマニュアルフォーカスの金筒ペッツヴァルレンズでポートレートが撮れた。

About 1 week ago Sunset in a Puddle

I saw a rainbow. I didn't take a photo of it, but I enjoyed with my own eyes. After spending sometime, I decided to go home.

虹を見た。写真は撮らなかった。たまには撮らずに昔のように楽しむのもよい。しばらく色彩を楽しんだ後、僕は家に向かって進み始めた。

About 12 weeks ago Waiting for the Sunrise

When I capture this shot (http://bit.ly/1ik9mSo), I was so satified. So I changed lenses and waited for the sun rising behind the bridge.

About 1 week ago Taking a Rest with a Cat

I was so tired from the long walk of the third anniversary event, so I didn't go up to the observatory, I didn't walk around, but I just rested with a cat in the alley in the last area we visited.

3周年PWはD800を2台担いで歩くというアホなことをしたら、途中で疲労満載になった。最後の浜松町では貿易センタービルの展望台にも行かず、街を歩きまわることもせず、路地にいた猫と柄にもなく見つめ合って1時間を過ごしたのだった。

About 12 weeks ago Green Tunnel

I've often visited this park since I was an elementary school kid. The fresh green tunnel has been always beautiful at this time of year. The trees are much taller now, though. By the way, I noticed that the focusing system of the camera needed to be fixed, so I visited Nikon's Service Center in Shinjuku.

子どものころからよく来ている公園は、この季節になると新緑のトンネルができる。昔と比べて違うのは、木々の背がずいぶんと高くなったことだろうか。ところで、この写真を撮った後に、フォーカスに問題があることに気づき、新宿のニコンサービスセンターに行って、カメラを調整してもらってきた。でも、まだなんだか変。
