The camera was an old digital camera.
It was small and black.
I had a felt strap around my neck, and it was securely attached to my chest.
I stood on the Tenmon Bridge in the Fugan Canal Kansui Park,
captured the ship in my viewfinder, and pressed the shutter with one hand.
Then I check the picture.
I watched it from the window for a long time.
What do you think? Did you like it?
I think I did a good job.
But, well, to be honest, it’s not that difficult to take landscape photos.
It’s a different story when the weather is terrible, but I don’t go outside then.
I do what I can inside my house.
You know, things like making coffee.
It was the morning of August 17. When I arrived at Toyama Bay, it was raining.
I was holding the umbrella tightly with one hand. But I love shooting on rainy days.
That’s much I can say.
There is a roadside station called “Amaharashi.”
You guys haven’t been there yet, have you?
It looks like a roadside station. It’s not like that.
There is a terrace outside the restaurant from which you can see Toyama Bay.
You can wander around there and take as many pictures as you like.
I like “Roadside Station Amaharashi.”
If I could live my life over again, I would visit a roadside station more.
I think this will be the last time I see Toyama Bay in this world.
Taking videos and taking pictures is not productive. However, I feel that a wave of commercialism has somehow arrived somewhere along the way. At the very least, I would like to take photos and videos for pleasure without profit or loss.
And I want to look again through a lens of cameras at what I can see with my own eyes because I want to see what I have seen again. Perhaps it is simple curiosity. Or I have a faint hope that I might be able to see something else in the photograph than what I saw with my own eyes.

“Fujimara Yasumasa Plays the Flute in Moonlight” by Yoshitoshi
Theme: Early Summer, 2022
① When the wind chime rang
On the porch, he was hanging
A new bamboo blind
② Reeds, thatch, and bulrush
And rusty water fills them
Certain places were bright
③ In the paddy fields
Weaving in and out between them
The two of us walked
