The summer-colored memory



In spring, the rice field where water was filled with like a mirror was sky blue.
Now, the season dyed paddy-rice deep green.

The sun draws this earth with various colors.





From here, the farmer plants the seedling one by one.
If it is autumn, he will harvest them in the same way again.

And will go home on this road...





The design of the sky.   The colors of the rice field.
Those faces show various expressions every moment...

In the next season, this verdure will change in gold.





夏草や  つわものどもが   ゆめの跡
   松尾 芭蕉 (1644 – 1694)

Summer grass   Many soldiers   Trace of a dream
   
Matsuo Bashō (1644 – 1694)

  1. Hello!
    I can't write any comment on your last Japanese Calligraphy, so I write here.

    I like isolated "spots" of ink: they look like petals of flowers which fly away...

    And I like these pictures too...

    Thanks very much for your friendly comment about the pretty hands of my grandson...

  49. When I lived in Beppu, I had a view of rice fields from my apartment balcony. I enjoyed watching the colors change through the four seasons. Your shots remind me of those images from my past! Thanks for your visit. Your comment is very kind.
