Photography in Tokushima, Japan (2023)

The Days Goes By

Under the moon, the galaxy flows.

Our memories flow.

I remember. The events of days gone by.

The sun is setting. Illumination begins to shine.

The months and days pass. Time flows.

The sunsets. A gust of wind blows.

Like the flowing stars, the memories die and go.

The wind also dies and dies.

The sunsets. The rain stops.

The months and days pass. She will not return.

The sun leaves. The moon goes.

The memories that have passed.

And old loves. They will not return.

Under the moon, the galaxy flows.

The sun has set. I hear a child’s voice.

The months and days pass. I am alone.

p.s. The photos were taken on January 1, 2023.

Photography in Imizu City, Toyama, Japan (2022)

Every time I close my eye, I think of the harbor of Imizu City. And the waves.

I look at the word “NAVIO” (ship) in Portuguese, then look up the dictionary again.

As I take notes, I realize that I don’t know the word for bridge is “PONTE.”

I had never looked it up before.

I thought about it for a while and then went to work.

Photography at the Fugan Canal, Toyama, Japan (2022)

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.

Photography in Toyama Bay, Japan (2022)

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.

Photography in Seto City, Aichi, Japan (2022)

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.
