Canal d’Ille-et-Rance

It is said that the canal was built in the 17th century. It crosses from Rennes, one of Brittany’s central cities, to Dinan, near the English Channel. I love walking along the canal and it is not exceptional. Many people enjoy walking, running, cycling and cruising on weekends. If you are interested in those type of activities, the canal would give you 79km length happiness.

exposed

I hope my challenge is accepted by LAPC hosts. This is my first participation to the challenge.
I don’t usually take minimalism photos but, indeed, I really love those. Several years ago, I used to take simpler pictures with my heavy digital SLR and I was always disappointed by them probably because I never imagined about the outside of the frame. Now I learnt that a simpler thing sometimes means more complex another.

A shadow on the photo is exposing me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

201806-102

I got inspired by plenty of pictures and comments. I learned a lot of ideas from various participants. What a wonderful community! Than you everyone, thank you for everything and thank you The Daily Post.
I don’t intend to add anything different from my usual photos but have chosen old-fashioned one for the final contribution.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

201805-401

Time to time, I have picked up some pictures taken here so far. The place, designed by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Farshid Moussavi, is now a main pier of Yokohama for cruise ships. The pier has beautiful shape like a back of whale and some aisles are looked being twisted.
Thank you for the very many inspirations. I’m so sad to hear the decision. It’s going to be the last challenge next week.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

201805-301

I studied physics when I was young and learned some physicists believed glass was a kind of liquid not because it’s transparent but it’s not crystal, that is, molecules are moving. Every physicist teaches snowflakes are kind of crystal and changing into liquid at the melting point. Therefore, you shouldn’t ask them the definition of liquid when you find them making some coffee with a flask. They may not be able to distinguish the sea from liquid or fluid as I didn’t. Though it’s much more normal compared with people who considers a doughnut is identical to a coffee cup, having one hole. Sometimes they store paperbacks into a toaster oven like I was doing.

まるでアルプスの春であるかのようなその花畑は、そのネガティブな側面をとかく指摘したくなる人に言わせれば、単に都会の隙間に忘れられた農地のかけらである。
The field of flowers as if it were so called Alpine meadow is, in someone’s pessimistic view, a fragment of a farmland forgotten in an urban city.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

201805-201

When I was a school boy learning how the world was working, paddy fields were my place of the world and then soon a wetland in southern France came to be a place of my yearning for after reading a novel setting in Camargue. It didn’t take so long time to decide to visit there to see the world. It still looked enough simple like a connect-the-dots communication but, spending a hot-blooded decade, suddenly I learned the world was so complicated and life was not so easy. My paddy field is now just a parking lot made with black asphalt and I’ve never been to Camargue.
