Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic


You may have an experience of blowing soap bubbles. It would be joyful memories. A few weeks ago, when I was taking a walk in a park close to my house, suddenly I became aware of a fact that the pleasure of memories about bubbles were not only coming from a happy time of my childhood but formed by seeing breaking smiles of children. We maybe forget such a magic under a relentless pressure of an urban life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny


There’s no such difference as it first seems. We share our planet and it’s a tiny world like small bees know what is a flower. We are aware of it and just we tend to see small differences.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O


When I was at a graduate school major in Physics, H2O was an unpleasant molecular formula. I don’t intend to bore you to discuss my experience about molecular structures but I could say it was nightmare.
This week I chose two different photos slightly implying coming or passing bad weather – I hope you find something in those – including H2O but not water. Honestly saying, blue one was taken few months ago and a green one was done last week, that is, both are not newly taken for the challenge but seem to be suitable for this challenge, doesn’t they?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror


A few moths ago, I was strolling through a backstreet of a big city Tokyo and I found me missing something natural and tranquil. I got bored with daily business and would be tired of doing same things every day. Perhaps I should gone on a weekend excursion to the back country to find nature. However, simultaneously, I understood what I needed was not nature but sophisticated calmness in the city. One of my ways to do was, as usual, to visit a smaller art museum.
The picture was taken at the Museum of Modern Art, Hayama, which is at a old resort just next to Yokohama and one hours from Tokyo. I hope you enjoy a mirror image made with the modern architecture, the sea and the sky.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

Once in a while I should have discussed photography on the blog because I have posted pictures every time. Frame, what a great subject to talk about it.
Honestly saying I don’t like to use a frame for my photos. It narrows down the canvas, limits a camera position and add one element of the picture in advance. In addition, we enjoy pictures on a screen of computer rather than prints. In other words, we see many layered frames like a screen, an application window, a picture window and a picture itself. Perhaps you remember that iPhone was like a panda when its screen factor was changed (iPhone4 to 5). When you ran some application for older iPhone, you might see a white application color inside a black frame inside a white iPhone.
However sometimes I found me taking a picture with a frame. One of my favorites I took was a image of Nuremburg through a old window glass at night. I missed it but still remember.
A typical framing style I like is found in Ukiyoe pictures. If you love photography, you know, “frame” doesn’t mean the rim of a picture. It must be a typical one but even a small branch as a foreground object can be a frame. Indeed Ukiyoe artists loved to use such expressions and Van Gogh would be one of successors.
Today I chose three different pictures which have no typical frame.
