Boats and swans in array

This photo was taken a year ago at a park nearby where my parents live in Japan. It was rather a bit early in the morning and was before that the boating services was opened.  I liked how the boats and swans that were on the pond in array, because they looked like waiting for the opening time for the service.

It was when cherry blossoms were in full bloom in many areas in Japan, and I enjoyed watching them dyed where I visited in pink.

This was my entry to this week’s Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole.

Monochrome Madness is the community she opens for other photographers and audiences who love monochrome / black and white photos.  Here gives me a great opportunity and challenges about monochrome images.  As it is open community, everyone can participate.

Bench in the scene – 切り取った場面に登場するベンチ

Usually my photography is landscape (or probably something to call ‘-scape’ whatever it is) so I rarely take portrait.

Just flipping my photos the other day, I found myself taking a bench (or benches) often in the scene of which I photographed.   Here are some out of them.  I don’t know if there was any implication behind myself when I took them, but I am sure that it was given some role in each scene.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

私はあまり人物写真を撮ることはなく、風景写真を好きで撮ります。壮大な風景ではなく、日常的によく見る場面の一部を切り取る感覚に近いものが多いかな。

ところで先日自分の写真を見ていたら、何枚かの写真にベンチが写っていることに気がつきました。ベンチを好んでいる訳でもないと思うのですが、背景に何か心理的作用が働いたのかはわかりません。今日は、その中の何枚かをこちらで紹介したいと思います。

今日もブログに立ち寄ってくださりありがとうございました。
