Lost Smile Found

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

This lost and found object really caught my eye today.  I haven’t taken many of the lost and found images over that last nine months or so as I have been exploring other subjects.  This little caught me by surprise.  He was just there.  Perched on the edge of a high brick wall in Ichikawa.  He was laying on his side, with a house key attached to him.  Even though he was lost, on his side and out and the cold, he still managed to smile.  His smiling made me smile.  Because of these chain reaction of events I knew I needed to take his portrait.

We need to never loose our sense of humor.  The unique human quality to laugh and refresh ourselves though our laughter.  I needed a good laugh today.  And this little guy gave it to me.  Even though he is made of plastic, he does not have a plastic smile to me.  His smile was genuine.  His smile was from the heart.

Laugh and smile.

Keyed in Ichikawa

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Rain was splattering away for most of the night and into the afternoon.  Luckily as I headed back to the station the sun was struggling to poke out from behind the clouds.  It didn’t show us that yellow light for very long, but I was thankful that it wasn’t raining.

We all need to search and find the key to our happiness, and be thankful once we found it.  And once we find what we are suppose to be doing, we must pursue it with our whole heart.

Amen

Two lost and found objects I captured in my camera today before the sky turned black and the skies just opened up and poured down cold stinging rain.

Lost Key to Someone’s Heart

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Someone lost the key to their heart.

If it is anyones out there, please contact me.

It would be a shame if that heart can never be opened again.

Have a beautiful day of rest.

The End to an Endless Summer

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

I guess with the silencing of the cicadas and seeing this one on my way home today signals the end to a summer that seem to have none.

I’m Melting, I’m Melting

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Ok, so I am not really melting, but it certainly feel that way.  You know its hot when you can feel the heat though the soles of your shoes.  That is the kind of heat we had today, and If it is a sign of what is to come, I know we are in for a hot Tokyo summer.

At least in the late afternoon, on my walk home, the sun was beginning to come down, and the mercury dropped a little.  The shadows were sharp and crispy like saltines.  The edges so defined between the shade and the lit part of some images.  I prefer the shade, at least to cool my weary head.

Lost keys, a found slapped images of Edison, I think.  If so, why would someone paste a tiny picture of Edison to a light pole?  That is beyond me.

Weeds and a Red Key

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Blazing sun baked this key till it turned red hot.  If the owner doesn’t find it quick it going to melt and become one with the bridge where I found it.  Some neighborhood weeds baking in the late afternoon sun.

Ever skyward

never really lost as long as you know who you are.

Sautéing Skies Under the Overpass

Monday, July 5th, 2010

As the sun was low in the sky this afternoon, the skies looked like onions Sautéing in the sky.  Quickly the skies turned brown, and no long after that they opened up and let loose droplets from the sky.

The alternating light and dark spots were what stopped me in my tracks to snap a picture.

When You Get Lemons, Don’t Make Lemonade, Take Pictures

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

After being stuck on the Tozai Line for about an hour I had to approach my destination on foot, in a sheets of mist.  The skies were so gray and full of moisture.  The density of the air was like that of my hometown of Miami.  So thick that one can take bites out of the air so satisfy your thirst.

Images just popped out at me left and right.  I took many more pictures this morning that I ever would have if I hadn’t had been stuck on the train.

So when you get those lemons go out and make the best you can.  For me that is to take pictures.  For you out there, figure it out and make it part of your daily habit.

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

I have been searching out the lost and found objects for about 9 years or so.  So many object lost and so many of these object found.  All have been gently placed with the intention of them being found by their owner.  Just another two keys that have been lost.  What do they unlock?  Will they ever slide into that lock agin?  Only the most high knows.

This is Not a Toy

Monday, June 21st, 2010

In between the daily rains of recent day I have been thinking of this verse from Isaiah 2:4.  I am sure most of you out there know it.

“and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

Then this item tossed aside on the edge of a pedestrian overpass I found a toy gun that has been tossed away.  Even though it is a toy gun, these so called toys breed violence into the games that children play.  It will be a beautiful tomorrow when there shall be no more metals and plastics used for destruction.

I await that day.

We all await that day.

Yes, she does.  She’s had enough hot air being spilled by the tricksters out there in the world.  Even though she is lost, she isn’t LOST.  She still fully comprehends her situation.  She knows what is to be must be, and that she can change only those things that she can control.

Live it up, enjoy the simple pleasure of a circle, square, and a couple of dots.  Enjoy the elegant beauty of a heart that is screaming out for attention.  Hey look at me I’ve got heart too.

Enjoy, live it up to the fullest.  Each and every single day.

Lost in the Rain

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

The rain finally came down today.  I guess it is a hint at the rainy season that is to come in the next week or so.  The tiny drops flowed from the clouds, and I watched as the pools gathered on rooftops across the city.

A lost monkey in the rain struggling to turn his smirk into a smile.  A bicycle key tucked behind some wire and paired with a silver gum wrapper.  A beautiful blue umbrella gently hung on a fence.  All lost in the rain, waiting for the skies to open and let the sunshine pour out.  When the sun shines hopefully they will find their way to their rightful owners.

Don’t forget your umbrellas.

Lost Your Key?

Monday, May 31st, 2010

If you have lost your key, you need to think seriously and try to find it again.  What is your key anyways?  Have you discovered it yet?  or are you still looking?

Hmmmm, more questions than answers today.

Partial Sunday

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

This Sunday has thus far been gorgeous.  The sun is high, the weather is warm and dry.  I pray that this weather will continue for a while before we get monkey slapped with the humid weather this summer.  So before I head out for the day.  These are some images collected over the past week.  A summary of sorts.  Just another partial Sunday.
