Resting

This was photographed when I explored path in a park which I had seldom visited.

The main part was made open for sports people that tennis courts and field were available to play. At that time there were people with their dogs unleashed while some others were playing football.

I found some small boats including this after I passed those area and stepped into the path led to a bit of bush. I liked the quiet ambiance produced by the boats and surrounding. It was a good contrast with the ambience at the sports field.

And this is my contribution to this week’s

The doors

Another photograph here taken at the same lunch break as I took this.

I do not know what drew my attention from the scene, probably I like the texture that I felt from the architecture and the doors.  The doors are underneath the mild steps connecting George street to Town Hall main entrance, yet it is several steps down from George street, so I would not pay attention usually.  My camera should always bring me exceptions and connect me to the world where I am, in the eye, in better view.  😉

Townhall in the morning

This was photographed sometime ago on one weekend morning. I like the ambient I felt there; quiet and surrounded in peace, which I would not see on weekday mornings.

Morning light made it clock tower and other buildings behind it outstanding in the scene. QVB was against the light but still blurry shone by the reflection which came from the building taking sunshine at the opposite.  That’s another point I thought of it good.

And this is my submission to Monochrome Madness this week hosted by Leanne Cole.

A morning on the beach

Another photo taken at Manly beach.

I like the way how a surfer came into the frame.  The guy nicely made himself in a silhouette due to the water with sunlight.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental

I had to get up very early this morning to get rid of something which I have been looking away for ages (it’s really hard for me to fight over procrastination).

Once I opened blinds in the bedroom, I realised that the morning sky was beautiful so I dashed out to balcony and experimented to see if I could get them see via my phone screen by reflection. Well, I could not set the phone to the best angle and degree to have it reflected the most beautiful clouds in the sky on its screen, I still found that I am still happy with the result which is below.

It was a little fun experimental shooting moment before I got to face the work to be done (and I am writing this as something it had to get rid of was gotten rid, yay!).

It was when I went to Leura Cascade in Blue Mountain National Park with a friend in one winter morning.

It was around 7 am when I got the point, and there are only a couple of people I saw in the area.

It was cold, drizzling, and sight was lost because of thick fog covered the mountains, however, it brought such a mystic ambient overall, yes, it was really quiet and beautiful.

We were photographing waterfalls, but I also fascinated these community of vegetation.

This was also posted on Leanne Cole’s ‘Monochrome Madness’ for this week.

I love her blog and ‘Monochrome Madness’, which is a part of her blog but make it open to readers photographers on Thursdays to post their monochrome images on there.

A Prime seat at a beach – 或るビーチに設えられた特等席

This photo was taken at a local beach in Sydney north shore in one early winter morning.  I was there aiming for photographing sunrise.

This bench is popular among visitors but this morning was not as it was still very early in the morning.

That morning was actually fantastic, not only because that I saw a beautiful sunrise at the point, but also that air was fresh, quiet, and surrounded in a total calmness.  There were only a few locals who did morning walk or morning swims / kayaking.  The world was turning to gold as sun came up and started being warmed by.  It will be great if these photos share the vibration and energy that I felt there with you.

Thank you for stopping by.

この写真は或る冬の朝に、ノースショアにある小さなローカルビーチで撮りました。

写真のベンチは人気でいつも誰かが座っていますが、さすがにこの時間はまだ早く誰も座ってはいませんでした。

日の出が目的で行ったのですが、実際すばらしい朝のひとときを過ごせました。早くからジョギングやカヤック、スイミング(冬の早朝でも泳いでます!)、ウォーキングをする人達でにぎわいますが、この時間はまだ人出の少ないわずかなタイミングで、空気というか波動がまだ穏やかで神聖な感じさえしました。その感じが、この写真からお伝え出来ていたら嬉しいです。

私のブログに立ち寄ってくださりありがとうございました。

ブログを書くにあたって – Mixed language, mixed identity

Ok, so my first blog has been pushed.  I wrote it in Japanese as it is my native language.  But sometimes I feel English is easier or better to express what or how I have got in mind even my English is relatively poor particularly in vocabulary!

I am in Australia over ten years and I have been inspired and experienced tons of stuff, all of which are values.  But even now I am sometimes reminded that my root is Japan in many occasions I get in my day to day life.

On the other hand, once I take a holiday and go to Japan, I found myself be getting off from the manner or pattern that Japan / Japanese follow, and I see myself being fit and comfortable with Australia.

Once I had had felt that I have no home to go mostly due to such reason.

Now I rather enjoy this because I feel I am more free from any grouping or category (sort of..)  :-).

So I will run my blog in either language in responding to how I feel when I write.  🙂
