50mm, f/1.8

Strolling into an early-summer forest

旅先で写真を撮るなら24mm前後(APS-Cなら16mm)あたりが一番使いやすい。テーブルの食事や部屋の様子もしっかり収まるし、広大な風景にはもちろん強い。薔薇を撮るのもマクロで花だけをクローズアップするより、クローズアップした薔薇の華やかさの向こうに緑や澄んだ青空が見えたほうが広がりが出る。だから広角を持ち歩く。
ところがである。ファインダを覗いていると、50mmの画角(APS-Cなら35mm)で見たくなる。ズームレンズを付けていても50mmはやたらと多い。50mmはやめられない。だれか理由を教えてくれないものだろうか。

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.

floral fragments

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.
