Upside down in winter lights

There is a local park nearby my family’s place.  They have the shrine for the goddess of prosperity and growth, and who also is regarded as protecting the park entirely.

I walk in the park when I am at family place, almost everyday, morning or afternoon, ..sometimes even both.

These were caught when I was on my way home from somewhere and was passing the park for taking shortcut.

It was cold but very gentle afternoon, that there was almost no wind that would have stroked the surface on the pond.

This is my belated contribution to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge last month.

Stillness on off duty time

This was photographed at a local park in Tokyo where my family house locates nearby.

It was rather still early and the recreational boats were all rested at small bay on the pond.

The boats interested me as subject to catch because of their gathered form which was nicely aligned.  I took some photos from various angles.

This photo was my contribution to this week’s

Monochrome Madness this week hosted by Leanne Cole.

Monochrome Madness is the community space 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.

By the way, the pond had Swans boats too.  They also beautifully parked in a row.  I would like to post the photo of them soon.

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.
