I have no idea who Sato-san on the left and Hiroko-san are.
But Sato-san seems to live near my office. It says 和泉町(Izumi-cho).
And Hiroko-san lives in 上北沢 (Kami-Kitazawa) near my home.
I hope they are and will be happy together.

Clear sky in the morning makes people happy!
Those trees at the bottom right are rather tall,
but comparing to the size of the sky, they look so tiny.

Do you see the bird flying beyond the trees?

Odakyu department store in Shinjuku.
It was there since I was a small kid.
I remember that I l lost at the toy department there,
and asked a clerk to call my mom.
Even as a child it was embarassing
to hear my name in the announcement.

and the main tree at the temple near the office.
I can't wait to see its flowers.
What you can see on the background is the temple bell.

I shot this sitting at the desk of the office.
As you can tell, it's a desktop calendar,
of which illustrastions are done by a friend of mine.

He has contributed so many illustrations to us,
and is now involved in so many big projects
with vairous companies .

One of them is an animation project.
It is now in production in Spain.
I can't wait to see it!

I thought I might be able to see
one or two hasty cherry blossoms but I didin't find any.
Instead, I saw the moss on their trunks were producing flowers.
They are flowers, aren't they?
If so, they must be the tiniest flowers I have ever seen!

I visited a friend of mine and saw him.
He is one of the two cats living in the house,
and is the older one so he's called "兄 - ani -",
which means "big brother."

It's hard to shoot a cat in a rather dark room,
so I set the ISO to 400, and gained grains here.

An interesting thing about this white flower is
that it was just outside of the flowerbed,
which was occupied by panies.

This white flower might have been inside of
the flowerbed last year, and the seeds or roots
were left outside there. I love its vitality!

Green Flowers

I walked around the office at the lunch time,
but there was nothing much to see in a typical residential area.

These plants were on the track side of a local railway.
They were green but I realized they were flowers
when I saw them closely.
I wouldn't realize that if I hadn't had a camera.

The ceiling of this building looks like a bottom of a boat.
But I am interested in this woody wall.
The lighting is quite nice, isn't it?

If you want to see the ceiling,
seach "Tokyo International Forum" on flickr.
You will find many of them.
