Photography「Full Bloom」Japan (2022)

I was looking at the plum blossoms. These plums bloomed earlier than cherry blossoms.

I was in a hurry, but there was nothing to worry about.

I was passing the time.

So after depositing at the ATM (I think I put in about 20,000 yen), it was no problem.

I wonder how many more springs I will have.

Photography at Shimabara Peninsula, Nagasaki, Japan (2022)

It was a stunning hairpin curve.

There were a few Japanese silver grass blooming in the foreground.

The clear white sky with the ocean in the distance.

My heart was at peace.

I got out of the car with my camera.

There I stared at the mountains, the sky, and the sea in the distance.

Everything was wonderful. Everything.

I am remembering what happened that afternoon.

Photography at Unzen City, Nagasaki, Japan (2022)

Here is a sentence I almost wrote before, but never got around to it.

I was once again recalling my first trip to Unzen.

I remember when I took the trail before sunset.

I came to an observatory from which I could see the old town and the Unzen Hell.

I was walking and shuttering, walking and shuttering.

I thought. My life is here.

Photography at Samurai Houses, Nagasaki, Japan (2022)

I was out somewhere in Shimabara, taking as many pictures as I wanted, wherever I wanted.

I would wander around and pass the time at my leisure.

I would stroll through the samurai residences at my leisure.

I would reminisce about my trip alone at my leisure.

I was taking pictures while holding an umbrella.

I remember that.

Photography at Shimabara City, Nagasaki, Japan (2022)

When I arrived in Shimabara, I first went to Shimabara Castle.

I climbed the stairs of the castle tower up to the 5th floor to the observation deck, where I took pictures.

I am looking out over the Ariake Sea.

I am taking pictures of that sea, a wonderfully beautiful sea.

But what was I thinking at that moment?

I wondered if I could see China in the far distance.
