May(1) shadow

 

                                               These are the shadows that walked with me while I was strolling one day when the sunset was shining.

                                                          They are silent and wearing a hat with a wide brim and a long dress.

                                                          Yes, they quite look like me today, too!

                                                          It is always fun to see that light and shadow make a piece of artwork.

a little happiness🎶

Peonies are blooming in my garden this year too.

To decorate the bay window in our living room with flowers, I picked two of the peonies and put them in a glass vase.







 

                                                                                     The military invasion that no one can stop is still going on.

The time when we could understand each other if we talked is over on this small planet?

The cold weather kept me at home last week except one day.

It was warm last Sunday, so I decided to go for a walk around Nara Park with my camera.

The park is about 600 hectares in central Nara City, which is known for magnificent temples and shrines that a lot of tourists visit 

and is also home to hundreds of freely roaming deer.

 



                                                      The field covered with frost was beautiful in the morning sun light.





After I enjoyed taking photos of the deer around the field called Tobihino, I carefully ventured further into the field, following the deer.

It was a bit scary but exciting.

☃ It doesn't  much snow here in Nara. 
So, I was excited to see that snow began falling just when eating breakfast last Wednesday.

I grabbed my camera in a hurry and clicked the shutter in our dining room.

  The snowflakes looked like needles, which were showering on the dead camellia flowers in the garden, in the picture 

as I forgot to set my camera.

                   



After finishing my breakfast, I dressed warmly and walked in the falling snow around my place for an hour.

This is a photo of my favorite bakery taken through the window of the shop.🌭🥐🥪🌮🍞

The inside of the shop looked very warm, and the lights hanging down from the ceiling were lovely. 

                                                                  📸 permitted photo
                                                                                     



My husband and I went to the next town to do some errands the other day.

I found that there is a piano in the station.

 I had not played the piano for a while and my hands were numb because of the cold day, though, 

I played the piano a bit. (Bach prelude No.1)🎵🎶

My husband took this photo with his mobile phone.
