Happiness is what we all want.
We seek it out, we neglect our own happiness.
We all need to go out and find a tranquility and happiness.
Happiness can be simple.
Getting a roll of film back from the developers.
Waking up an hour later than usual.
Treating yourself to a nice cup of coffee.
If the simple things make you happy, think about
something that could be life changing would.
I so look forward to that stroll on Friday afternoons. The week is pretty much over, the stresses
that built up over the week dissipate as I wander the backstreets back to Ichikawa station. The rust, the decay, the faded signs, all soothe my soul.
No stress, only pure joy.
till the next time. . . . .
After several complete failures with my vintage Hasselblad 500 C I got though Ebay back in March, I have finally gotten back from the lab a properly loaded and exposed roll. I am pretty happy with the results, they have spurred me on to take out for walks more frequently. Most of these images are from the cherry blossom season back in April.
Got to find my pot under the rainbow.
Till the next adventure.
Back to one of my favorite subjects. The political tricksters ant their posters.
I am not sure why I am so drawn to these gaudy posters. It might be the challenge
in their pure horror, and ugliness to create something abstract and intriguing.
I see photography as a process, which the goal is to create the best possible image.
This of course starts with the way the image was shot, which camera was used, exposures and
what have you, but it does not end there. One needs to keep on pushing and pulling the image
until the image satisfies something in your soul. When it does it is ready to be shown.
The sun was high in the sky. The mercury is surely creeping higher and higher. The haze
that engulfs Tokyo stretched as far as it would let you see.
I journeyed back to Ichikawa station. Wandering thought the same streets as last Friday. The old decaying stores mingle with the freshly poured cement. To wander the streets, is to heal my soul.
Heal soul, Heal.
see you on my next stroll.
