Revisiting the Harbor of the Future
People often ask me what do i do during the weekends here in Yokohama.
“Oh I go out to take photos”.
“Really? So you’re traveling to somewhere new every weekend?”
“Erm… no. This is the 4th weekend I am photographing the city area”
Then comes the classic bewildered look and “Is there so much to photograph there?”
Well yes, there is plenty to photograph if one is willing to spend the time to look for them. And I am glad I kept I coming back to the same place (these were taken from Osanbashi Pier by the way) because I was finally rewarded with a beautiful sunset last weekend.
The greatest reward is perhaps seeing the silhouette of the iconic Mount Fuji. Yeah I know it’s really small but hey, it’s a big thing for someone new to Japan like myself.
Sometimes a great photograph is made when we happen to be at the right place at the right time. But that’s not going to happen everyday. It’s all about planning and persistence. And on that weekend, my persistence paid off.
I believe it is time to conquer new grounds.
