I like to be at waterside, whether the sea, a lake, a pond, a stream, or a puddle.
I like to watch the ever changing water-surface
with different shades and intonations of colors caused by light and wind.
There's something beautiful and enchanting.
On a sunny day of late April, I was at one of the ponds of the Isui-en Garden.
I lost myself to the yellow Koi, or Carp, swimming with ripples in the reflection water.
Guess what are the pink flowers at the pond of Chogaku-ji Temple.
During my trip to Tottori Prefecture at the end of May, I stopped at a little pond.
It was nameless but not unremembered .....
for the fascination of yellow Irises and the reflections.
Here is another untamed, nameless pond edged by White Clovers.
At the water-lilies pond of Gansen-ji Temple in mid-June.
The first image is focused on the aqua plants on the pond;
the second on the little purple flowers at the edge of the pond.
The following two photos are not at waterside or from the archive of this year.
They are from March of 2012 when my daughter had a wedding.
Thinking of reflection photos, I suddenly remembered these ones.
These are the two of the most memorable reflection photos.
The former half of the year 2019 fleeted away
and summer holiday is coming soon.
I'll have a blog break till the end of summer when my grandchildren
return to their school or kindergarten.
Wish you a terrific summer, winter, or any other season
from the center of a little world of Furin, or a Japanese wind-chime.
