“I Will Rise Up” (Week 41/52) by Milmon F Harrison
The very first moment of my daughter’s Spring Dance performance. One of the first shots taken. This is not my daughter, by the way; she’s in a later piece. I really liked this image because of all the “white” space, and because I “see” light in the blackness of the background; it seems as if she has an aura or halo around her body–or is that just my imagination? I still see her rising as I look at it.
Toyama Sakura by jpellgen Via Flickr: In my quest to visit every prefecture in Japan (I still need to visit 5 more), the last one I had to check-off on the main island of Honshu was Toyama. Luckily, it is easily accessible from Tokyo now by using the Hokuriku Shinkansen. While the sky was somewhat gray this particular morning, the castle and surrounding park provided some lovely sakura viewing.
Toyama City, Toyama.
