How often do you stroll around your neighbourhood or town? I rarely do. I tend to drive these days, although I’ve been making an effort to walk more lately. It’s the perfect season for doing so. On Sunday afternoon, I went to a small celebration. I drank champagne at the party, so of course, I left the car at home.
It was a nice day, so instead of getting a taxi, I walked there and back. It took around an hour each way. I stopped at a few places on the way and took pictures. It’s surprising how little we notice when we drive everywhere. I found lots of nice corners I had never noticed before. Corners like this – autumn leaves in spring!
And this – spring green
And these carps flying in the breeze
The wind socks in the photo are called “koinobori” and they are displayed to celebrate Children’s Day. Children’s Day is 5th May, but there were still some carp flying in the wind on Sunday! For more information about Children’s Day, see here, and for more information on koinobori, see here! And here is a shot of the wide spring sky and a traditional house.
And a nice shot of the river.
