Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

201801-401

When you are wrapped in the silence, you are listening to the song of wind.
静けさに身を委ね、風の声を聴く。

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

201801-301

Even when you are passing at a temple with no name (probably you just don’t know it) and even if you are not a Buddhist (probably not anyway), old wooden figures at a gate would stand out in your memory for a while. Their weathered faces are made by rain, wind, sun beam and awe.

風雨にさらされ、夏の光に耐え、畏敬の眼差しに触れ。

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

201801-201

Some words would be needed. First of all, it’s a cherry tree in bloom and cherry blossoms are sometimes interpreted as a symbol of growth in Japan because a school year starts in April with full blooming Sakura cherry. However there are so many kinds of Sakura and one of them starts blooming in December or January. It might not be the best one but it is still beautiful.

Cozy

201712-501

I used to have a cozy sleeping on “tatami” of a north side room
in summer and to be lying snug and warm on “engawa”, a Japanese style loggia, in winter when I was a child. Today, it is hardly seen and a part of nostalgia or a historic architecture.

The picture at the top was taken at a preserved architecture close to my house.

最近は縁側も少なくなって猫も困っているのではないかと心配。

Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favorites

 

201712-501

The word ‘Favorites’ is quite common but it always reminds me a voice of Julie Andrews probably because it is still a foreign word for me and I learned it in the movie. That’s not so bad.
This week I’ve picked out a photo I dropped the idea to post for WPC at once, capturing my favorite place.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ascend

201712-301

Sometimes we need to be crawling up an easy slope. Our daily life always has a difficult face and we aren’t aware of it.
He was just walking on a slope of huge pier but looked strange somehow probably because he was, of course, not a passenger of the Diamond Princess nor Asuka II. He was not a crew, neither. However he must be a crew of our planet. That’s a life.
