Another flower shot from me.
It’s Spring, I can’t help it! They are blooming everywhere and I just couldn’t let them get away :))

PS. I’m currently adjusting my new daily update post time

I didn’t plan to shoot sundown photograph that day because I didn’t bring my regular tripod but after walking for several minutes to the other side of the bridge, I saw the sun comes down slowly. Although, it wasn’t really beautiful like winter sun down but it was a nice feeling watching it from the bridge.

The soft small waves on river looks really nice that moment.

Soon in a few months I’ll come back again to this bridge and watch the summer fireworks festival wearing Yukata (Kimono). No wait, I forgot there’ll be no Yukata because I probably busy taking pictures. I can’t possibly moving around with my gears wearing Kimono :))

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.
