Farewell Ichikawa, Japan, Till April

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

I walked those Ichikawa streets for the last time for a few months today.  The sun’s rays were growing long, and the light was just perfect.  Sometimes, I just see, and observe how quickly the light changes around this time of day.

It is around that time of day, that a few minutes, even a few seconds can make the difference between the most amazing light and just in the shadows.  I love watching those changes.  Light, and seeing light has become integral part of what makes up life.

I wonder to myself, how can people just walk by with out seeing how amazing the light is.  I know other photographers know what I am talking about.  Golden, yellow, orange, white, they are all there.  All one has to do is pause and just open your heart, and see what is happening all around you.

So, for now, I bid a sweet farewell to Ichikawa.  Goodbye!  Take care!  I will walk your streets again come April.

Till April Ichikawa

Stop I Will Shoot

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

The first image was taken at a local workshop in my neighborhood.  I must have passed by this front a million times.  I had never noticed how beautiful and balanced the front was.  I guess the main reason I never noticed it was usually there are several cars and trucks in the driveway.  Today it was as clear as the skies.

The second image the sun was just hitting the stop sign.  You know the way light will just hit some object in the late afternoon or the early evening, this was a perfect example of that case.  I had no choice but to obey the stop sign and and SHOOT.  SNAP, SNAP went the shutter.

Both images are a wonderful example, of no matter how many times we tread down the same streets, unless we can shake of the mundane and truly see, it would be just another day.  Instead if you can beautiful enlightening moments can occur.
