Basking in the frame

Peaking the relaxed ambience over the open window of an Italian cafe in Sydney.

坂の多いシドニーではこうした半地下のお店も見かける。特に旧い建物にそれが多い。

このイタリアン・カフェはいつも賑わい、この日も朝から活気に溢れていたので思わず一枚。窓枠の中は今日も美味しいコーヒーと楽しいお喋りで溢れていた。

Anchante, The Japan Blue

 

A hand-dyed Indigo scarf…

My tribe in Japan made it for me from the scratch making the solution with fresh indigo leaves.

This enchanted gift thrilled me, excited me, and shook me.

Why, because there is no clone / copy of this indigo scarf. The solution and weather, and other conditions bring this only beautiful result on the textile, and you will never make exactly the same result in this blue.

Anchante, and thank you for coming to me!

完全なる手作業、手仕事による100%天然の藍のスカーフを日本から受け取りました。製作者である、私の部族仲間の愛を感じながら。

この世にたった一点のスカーフ。宇宙レベルでの出会いに感謝。

An another winter morning

… that I witnessed as it began the day with this masterpiece, just spread in front of myself at the balcony.

Beautiful yet overwhelming.

I see this type of complex art painted over sky canvas more in winter season rather than summer.

And that morning assured me that this is why I like Sydney in winter season and I do not mind waking up in the darkness (well, mostly for my cats awaiting for breakfast..).

冬の朝、日の出前に起きるとこんな光景に遭遇する。空いう広大なカンバスに描かれた作品。見とれているその横からどんどん絵が変わっていく。

圧倒されるその美しさ。でもこんな贅沢に出会えるからシドニーの冬が好きなんだ。

Up, up, up…!

I trained my iPhone up on me in the lift like a fish tank.

Giddy, giddy, giddy…!!

My colleague stood apart from the glass to make sure himself safe and healthy.

This is a shot inside one of the most modern commercial buildings in Sydney CBD, taken from the lift of glass box in the building.
