Chasing reflection on the morning stroll in the Park

I took a morning stroll in the nearest park from my mother’s house.  It was pleasant warm morning that a mild cool and dry breeze stroked my cheeks gently yet you could feel early summer that was being right next to you.

The park has a pond in the center of the premises. It’s being busy with boats and swan boats ‘cruise’ around by visitors during day time.

The one I saw in the morning was incredible, the surface on the pond was sleek smooth as if a mirror installed on the pond. 🙂  Sometimes the mild breeze stroke raised small ripples on the surface of the water.  Evert ripples produced different touch on the water and objects of which were reflected on were seen with various effect.

It was the morning making me proud of myself for catching up this beautiful world of fresh green, on the last day with the perfect weather.

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.

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.  🙂
