transportation

When I travel unfamiliar places, I always get the urge to take a picture of transportation system. I don’t know the reason but time to time I found myself shooting buses, trains, boats or airplanes. Of course, the shape of bus in Yokohama where I live is mostly same as what you see in the rest of the world; boxy, having four or six wheels, square windows etc. Perhaps, small differences might arouse the traveler’s sentiment to me.

不慣れな場所を旅する時、いつも交通に関する写真を撮りたくなる。理由は分からないが、時々バスやら電車やら船やら飛行機やらと写真を撮っている自分に気づく。もちろん住んでいる横浜のバスは、世界中の他のバスとほとんど変わりはない。角張っていて、4つか6つのタイヤがあって、窓は四角。ひょっとすると小さな違いが旅情のようなものをひきおこすのかもしれない。

The picture on top is a taxi brings you to the other side. It’s cute and convenient.

一番上の写真は対岸に向かうタクシー。可愛らしいがとても便利。

Above three pictures were taken around Vancouver. And now I learned I didn’t taken such pictures so much in Yokohama. So the last one for Yokohama.

写真はバンクーバー周辺で撮ったもの。横浜ではこんな写真は撮ってないなと今気が付いた。ということで、最後に横浜。

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

201406-003room“From the four walls that currently surround you”, eh? four walls? Traditionally, walls of a house in humid climate area are not fixed. A line separates a room from another could be a wall and also a kind of sliding door. In other words, a large room could be separated into small rooms flexibly by doors or something like partitions.

Interestingly, I found that FOV was similar to the first one but why? One of the reason is, perhaps, in both cases, better usage of available space are always required.
