Hana and Hanako (Weekly Photo Challenge: Unlikely)

On that day, I met two lovely animals at Yoyogi Park, a large parkland (540,530 square meters) locating in urban area in Tokyo.

One was a french bulldog, called Hana. She is the dog of my friend’s, and I had a good catch-up with them at the park.

Then I met another beautiful yet the unlikely one to see nearby in the park. His name was Hanako. Why he was unusual was because, he was the monkey from Africa banning the export to overseas, and you hence will rarely see the breed in Japan (to be fair for the owner, Hanako came to him before the import was banned).

Hanako was unusual also for its name because Hanako was a name for female in Japan, while, that Hanako was man (not even a boy for his age ;-)).

Anyway, the both Hanas were as relaxed as their owners were and I found of them a kind of lucky to have the big park (with full of green) nearby on their living area.

Here are some photos of them.

Catching evening light 2

When I go to Tokyo, catching sunrise / sunset is somehow a bit harder (just) for me as a subject, and catching lights are a bit easier.

Here are photographs out of which I caught in one early evening at Shinjuku. I’m glad to be able to tick off a name in my ‘list of spots to photograph’.

Being said, I hope to be back there once again in a little earlier time which I expect some afternoon light will dye the background in orange / gold. I am not sure if I can make a time for, or the name of the spot will be left on my list without tick. 😉

Anyway, I will close this post for now as it will make no sense to continue writing with unreasonable concern.

Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

A taxi stand on the bay

This jetty for the water taxi was taken at Chowder Bay, a small hidden beach beneath Georges Head I went up.

I was there once in a while.  As the beach is not big in size and the location, which is hidden, I was a little surprised at seeing many people there at leisure.

Certainly it was nice day for dipping into the water and picnicking.

Sydney Harbour at sunrise 1

One morning I got up early to catch some moment of Sydney Harbour at sunrise.  I think I took some photos fanatically, and I will start posting them in here.

I see always a good beginning of story at Sydney Harbour, something like, the day has begun or, the life changes from static to dynamic.

Anyway, here are that I caught the sunrise at the harbour over the little lighthouse.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

I feel good silence in early morning hence I picked up the below two images for my entry for this week’s theme: Silence .

The both were taken in 2017 and still kind of most impressed view I came across in my multiple early morning photography.  🙂

It was post full moon morning at Byron Bay.  I appreciated the clear sky, which let me capture in last minutes before the moon set.
