When the temperature starts rising and Summertime is coming closer, you see these kind of poster or flag at the entrance of restaurant in Japan.
It says ‘We have started serving Chilled Ramen’. Oh yes, Chilled Ramen! We like Ramen very much and we eat it cold too. It is our Summer Tradition. Summer in Japan is very hot and humid. We cannot survive without eating Chilled Ramen!
Water Feature at Kojimachi Kaikan Hotel, Tokyo
‘Photo101’ – Edge & Alignment
This is one of the Japanese gardens made by the famous buddhism monk designer Shunmyo Masuno. This is built along a Hotel facing to the lobby. There is not much gap between the water feature and the building and water falls down from quite a height. It has a huge impact as water power.
‘Photo101’ – Double & Rotation
New lives were found inside this old crumbling tree. Is this a transmigration of soul? Very mystic.
‘Photo101’ – Moment & Motion
I haven’t succeeded in capturing a movement with slow shutter speed yet. In the meantiteme I thought nothing looks like a ‘Moment’ more than Waterfall. It is very hot today here, where I am so I have to post this photo to feel cool.
The Bridge covered with Moss leads you to a quiet World
Day 6 on “Photo 101” – ‘Connect’ & Tag
This is an ancient bridge over a pond in a quiet Moss Temple in Kyoto, Japan. Under a dense canopy the quiet atmosphere spreads out as if time has stopped. I was alone there. Moss spreads out literally 360°. Not just your vision, but your hearing is also affected in this world. You feel like you have been sucked into another dimension.
This is also a connection in a totally different world in the Netherlands. In this winding tunnel you cannot see where it’s leading you to, but bright sunlight comes through the leaves giving you exiting expectation.
