A Photo a Week Challenge : Focal Point

In a morning mist, a pine corn that someone lost was waiting for the next owner. As if it were a spaceship lost in the universe, the door was closed tightly and no one could pick it up. Only a person who has a innocent focal point may see it.

不時着した宇宙船のように、松ぼっくりが朝露に濡れていた。

A Photo a Week Challenge : Gates and Fences

Of course this is just a kind of no-entry sign for campers. Even if you go over there, nothing should happen. No dangerous places, no bears, just going around a small pond, you will back here. In the morning mist, it looked somehow strange.

どうというわけでもないのだが、ゲートが朝露の中で少し落ち着かなく見えた。

A Photo a Week Challenge : Water

A running water was telling the end of the small pieces of indecisive summer. Nobody could no longer remember that kids were shrieking with delight around the water. A new school semester has just begun. A season of playing with water was over. Because leaves of street trees covering pavements start turning the colour to be yellow.

流れ落ちる水に子供達の楽しそうな声が想像できなくなった頃、どちらつかずの夏が終わって街路樹の葉が少しずつ黄色になってきた新学期、水が嬉しい季節も終わろうとしている。

A Photo a Week Challenge : Attitude

It was in a listening attitude with eyes staring at me. It seemed not so easy to catch it because it was on a branch 10 meters high. It should be enough prudent, different from me.

遥か頭上の枝の上でそれは用心深く聞き耳をたてながら、じっとこちらを凝視していた。

A Photo a Week Challenge : Horizontal Lines

Everything was going well. In the gentle sunlight, nothing was to be concerned. All I need to do was to think about the future, as a stranger there, in an ordinary park.
Horizontal lines are very stable. Even on the sea wave, when you see the horizon, you should feel somehow calm. Sometime, however, you may find that there are uncertain, vertical and unstable structure over there, and then, you will be consumed by anxiety.
This is the world we know, unfortunately and fortunately.

ボードウォークの水平な板を見ながらほっとした時間を過ごしていると、突然気がついたりする訳である。その向こうに曖昧に揺れる縦縞に。

A Photo a Week Challenge : Reflection

When I was a naughty kid, I used to walk along a small brook to find something interesting. I had no particular reasons but it was my pleasure to see small insects, fishes or sometimes twinkling reflections. I found something into a cloud on a water, I missed something under the reflection. Now, I don’t have curious eyes but hopefully a small imagination.

子供の頃は水の中を覗き込んでは何かを発見することができたものだが、今はともかく興味深いものは何も見つからない。その代わり、気のせいなのかもしれないが、想像力だけはついてきた気がしている。

Bonne journée, photo challenge

short summer days

After an extremely busy week of July, suddenly unexceptional hot summer had come, and then a bit cool summer has been back again as usual. It was just 5-days summer. Now it takes 20 degree (less than 70F) and you have patchy rains.
I have been mostly absent from the blog sphere and perhaps will be for a while. Excuse me for my lazy response.

30度超えも1週間と続かなかった夏が終わったようだ。8月も半ばになれば秋の気配だから、もう暑い日はこないのだろうかと寂しくなる。少々仕事が忙しいこともあって、ブログ上には殆どいない。反応が悪くて申し訳ないが、ご容赦いただければ幸いである。
