LOMOGRAPHY FISHEYE! I bought it at the week before last week at an internet auction. It was 5,850 yen with 6 rolls of VISTA100(AGFAFILM) films. We can't buy AGFA's film anymore because the company went bunkrupt, you know, so I was so happy to get it.
LOMOGRAPHY's cameras are very interesting thought they are toy-cameras. I can't imagine what the printed pictures would look like since it's not the images that I look from finder when I click away the shutter button.
I spent leisured holiday with friends. We were supposed to have a barbecue at riverside, but we changed our plan since it was rain during the forenoon. I haven't spent such a tranquil holiday like today for a long time.
First, we visited the former estate of the marquis Toshinari Maeda. The Western and Japanese-style buildings are open to the public. It was the first time that i saw former estates. They were so impressive and beautiful. The retro-flavored atmosphere was so nice. I love to take photos, you know, I took so many good pictures there.
There were imposing trees around the buildings. I like big trees. Daily irritations of my daily life seems to be not a big deal as compared to big trees' long life. They have been lived calmly over the decades, centuries, and thousands of years. They have not only calmness but also strength.
It was good weather afternoon, so the rustles of trees were so comfortable, and the falling light through the trees were beautiful.
Next, we visited the Former Furukawa estate's garden. (We could not enter the building since time was late.) The Western style garden and Japanese style garden were so large and beautiful.
At night, we went to ALBATROSS where is one of my favorite bars in Shinjuku. We had a nice chat on the roof. It was nice to feel the night breeze.
There are many other former estates that I could not visit today in Tokyo. I hope visit there if I have time.
