Put on a Band-Aid for a tiny scar.
Applied a bandage to hide the Band-Aid.
Wore a cast to hold the bandage.
A tiny scar became a big matter.

Rear Window

Run.. run away.
Throw it away.
You don't need it anymore.
Run.. run.
Don't miss the chance.

Call me when you feel down.
I'll listen to you as much as you want.
Believe me if you have anxiety.
I'll hold you tight as long as you want.
You are not alone.
You cannot be alone.

Baby, Forgive Me

"Love is Love. I didn't mean to hurt you."

"Please don't cry anymore, you are something different."

"Are kids doing fine? Can I talk to them?"

"Oh, come on. You know me. You should have known me."

"Baby, forgive me."

The door did not open by itself
but it was there to be opened.

After The Twilight

He woke up at the same time as he always wake up. It's been a couple of weeks now I met this beautiful woman. Everything was set and was so natural. No one can hardly persuade me that we never met in the previous life. The woman rolled over and her shiny long hair blow up its sweet scent. And her glance comes straight to my heart.

In The Midafternoon

She doesn't remember how many times she's walked this road. Circle, round, the same old tune continue like a broken mp3. After a daydream in the midafternoon creek.

Take Off

So, how far should I get back to start my story? Maybe, the day I taken off?
I had a great photo session a day before my departure, and was looking forward to do my last photo shoot at Kanda-myojin "Matsuri". Unfortunately, couldn't make it but had enjoyed taking on-the-way-photos to DBX(Dubai International Airport).
At Narita, a city close to my home town, has an international airport but no EK(Emirates Airline) direct flight is available, so I needed to take train to transfer to Haneda Airport. The Haneda Airport is located in beside the Tokyo bay and the monorail is the common access to the Airport.

At 8:45pm, I left Tokyo, and arrived Kansai Airport(another international airport in Osaka, Japan)... I forgot, maybe around 10.30pm. It was quite short transit from domestic line to international line. I was runing in the dark airport passage with a big luggage. I was told to bring the 3 notebook PCs to Dubai office staff... they should not have forgotten I am a lady... I did sucessfully brought 3 PCs and my belongings.
I still remember I did not have any excitement nor fear to departure to unknown place. Nothing special, I was walking, beathing, and shooting.

New Life

Starting new life.

I was seeking something that doesn't exist any more.
It was in my history book, nothing is in the reality now.

Hello everyone! On May 14, 5:15am, 30C degree... I arrived Dubai, UAE. As usual, not much special feelings. Just an another ordinary day had started. ;) A driver from our company came to pick me up and checked in the Hotel around 6:30am. Take a walk for a couple of hours and have done some first photo shootings ;) I'm at an internet cafe. Here's our current environment.

MSN Messenger: OK
Yahoo! Messenger: OK
Blogger: OK
Flickr: NG (blocked)
Skype: NG (blocked)

The site which has keyword "proxy" is also blocked.
Anyhow, so far so good. I'd safely arrived in Dubai. ;)

Thank you so much for all your encouragement.
Talk to you soon!

Cold Feet!?

What in the world could I imagine this would happen to me!?
(dear first visitor: I'm living in Tokyo but moving to Dubai in 13days...)
Ok, I need to confess here I was not a good Japanese citizen.
I didn't like Japan.
It was very boring and restricting country for me up till very recently.

I born in a small village in Chiba, Japan.
My family and I left this small community when I was 12 years old.
We move to Los Angeles, USA, had lived 4 years.
Since then, no matter where I go, every time I have cold feet is when I go back to Japan.
I always cried when my aircraft landed at Narita Airport.
"I'm back again...." and a sigh.

I started taking photography about 11 months ago,
and met an unreplacable person 9 months ago through photography.
(of course, everybody around me is unreplacable, but he was something different)
I was considering Tokyo is great place to make money.
There's alot of job opportunities if you try hard. But that was it.
Through photography and him, my mind had changed gradually
and started to loving this country, miss my friends more, miss Tokyo more,
miss him more than I've ever imagined.

Oh yes, I am, no doubt, cold feet.
And I know this syndrome effects only temporary.
Yet, I just don't want to....

Ok. let's go back to packing...........

The Size of Receptor

Everyone seems to have own size of receptor.

For example,

one heart is like a ceramic mug.
It need to be poured alot to be full-filled, and need to pour alot to refresh the liquid inside.
A ceramic mug appears robust, but actually very fragile. It could easily fracture into fragments when it fell down.
The freshness of the liquid inside is unrecognizable from the outside.

Another heart is like a flute glass.
It does not need to be poured alot to be full-filled, and does not need to pour alot to refresh the liquid inside.
A flute glass is delicate and very fragile as it looks. It could easily fracture into fragments by subtle shock.
The freshness of the liquid inside is recognizable from the outside.

One need to give and receive a sea of expressions to stay healthy.
Another doesn't express so much, but doesn't require so much expressions.

It is not the quality of feelings, the quantity of feelings related to the size of receptor.
Larger size you have, take you more time to give and receive, deeper from and to few.
Smaller size you have, no need to spend so much time to give and receive, lighter from and to all.
The similar size of receptor holders are generally comfortable with one another.

But no worry,

you could get along well with any size of receptors, if you understand you and their size of receptor ;-)
Enjoy the different types of good relationships!

Shinjuku Typhoon (JuJu)

In Spring, there's a lot of days that particularly fine, warm and windy.
I was walking Shinjuku street to do some preparation shopping for moving to Dubai, UAE.
My last long stay in the foreign country was Canada 2004-2005, I was preparing tough boots and thick long socks, now I'm preparing breathable athletic shoe and thin short sockes ;-)

When I walked pass the south entrance of Shinjuku station, I was luckily found fantastic guitarist again. The JuJu's soothing blues rock guitar instrument were cutting through the strong spring wind. His sound reminded me Joe Satriani as he writes in his brochure that he had influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Steve Morse, John McLaughlin, Eric Johnson, Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, Chet Atkins, and etc... well, who doesn't like them if you are blues rock lover :P JuJu were there to promote his guitar class held in his house. But not only a teacher, he also plays in the band called SPIRAL, the Japanese style progressive band by guitar, bamboo flute, electric keyboard, and vocal.

He was such a comfortable subject to take photo. I could allow myself to let out my passions through the lens when I encounter the passionate subject.
It was a weekday afternoon, yet still caught the people walking.
