Cosmos (コスモス)

Last weekend we went to a park in northern Hiroshima Prefecture. They had approxiamately 1.5 million Cosmos plants all in full bloom. It was quite amazing. Check out the cosmos gallery on my webpage (link on right) for more pics.
先週末広島県の北部にある国営備北丘陵公園に行って、満開の150万本のコスモスを見た。とても奇麗だった。(もっと見たいなら右の"Giphsub Photography"のリンクをクリックして、”Cosmos - Japan”のギャラリーを見てください。 )

Food Fight: Kites v Crows (鳶対烏)

Last weekend when I was on my way home from the photography club trip, I stopped to watch the kites and the crows fighting over the dead fish that for some reason were strewn all along the river banks. Crows often hassle the kites when they fly through their air space, and the kites just fly away. But this time the tables were turned, and the kites were very aggressively fighting off the crows who were sneakily trying to snatch the fish away from the kites. I was too far away, and the pics are cropped and enlarged, so they are not great quality, but you can still see what is going on. It was very amusing.

Himeji Castle (姫路城)

This has got to be one of my favourite places in Japan. It is said to be one of the most beautiful castles remaining in this country. I used to visit Himeji quite often for work, and every time I would take a wander through the grounds (which are quite huge) and enjoy the scenery. If you ever come to Japan I highly recommend making your way there to take a look.

Photography Club Trip (写真部撮影会)

On Sunday we went to a nearby historic town for our school photography club trip. It was a dark, overcast day, and not too great for taking photos, but I was happy with a few of them.
