The blue Heron. I’ve been to this park so many times but I have never seen this bird stop by.

Today is Children’s day in Japan and those who have little boy in family usually put Koinobori (carp banner) for their son around late April to early May every year, wishing their son to grow up strong and healthy boy.

I just love the colourful banner.

I don’t know how is it like to live with my parents. I never even met my biological father. But watching that little girl smiling and holding on to her father made me smile and lighten my heart that very moment.

I would spend hours sitting and reading there. It was such a peaceful feeling looking at the grass and there were no people around. Just a nice place to relax and be inspired.

Just a random shot while waiting for the traffic light to go green. From my view, on the left side is a middle aged man and on the right is young lady with a baby and both showing the same similar pose and movement. And in the far back two motor bikes and few cars crossing the streets.

I find it interesting of how simple thing like this can make you think about something you don’t usually realise, that life is full of harmony and balance with or without our conscious. Is there really such a coincident? Or does it really happened for a reason? You’ll never know, I guess that’s the harmony of life.
