It had been raining all day, and then, as we settled into evening, the sky cleared and we had pinch of sunshine. And more mysteriously, some mist – which is unusual in July.
Time passes. This photo is from a test roll I did on a (new to me) camera. I think it was mid-evening when I took it and as you can see, the Sun is setting. As I’m writing this, it is a similar time of day – but it is completely dark outside (and has been for a couple of hours). I am almost 50 years old, I know the science, but the seasons still amaze me.
I love the delicate range of colours and the whispy white clouds. So it is a “shapes” photo rather than a “things” photo.
I remember as I was walking around the park, I was thinking, that if we could get everything back to normal by the end of the year – then all the inconvienience would have been worth it. But – things aren’t back to normal!
Another morning walk picture. How has being in lockdown affected you? What do you do differently to before?
I was going to write that I get up earlier, but that’s not true. I used to get up at 5am before, but then it was because I had to get ready for work, where as now, I get up early to avoid people during my walk. I can’t believe how much I do to try to avoid other people.When this pandemic has passed, I wonder how quickly we will settle into being around eachother again?
This is just an a photograph of Mt. Fuji from the shinkansen going to Kyoto from Tokyo. On the train, you catch a glinpse of it quite early and the train takes you closer and closer – until – you have this view. If you fly into or out of Narita airport, you also get a good view (I might post that view at some point). Looking at photographs on line, you can see that Mt. Fuji has a little cloud for a hat. It is bigger than it looks and commands its landscape, silently challenging.
I believe it is possible to climb Mt. Fuji at certain times of the year – and right now – I would really like to go there and give it a try.
