I walked along the moat of Fukuoka castle. All lotus leaves died, but there are flower pots full of colorful beautiful flowers. I found a bag on a bench along the moat. I brought it from Ohori koen to Daimyo to find a police box. Since the distance between Ohori koen and Daimyo is so so far, I feel that I should have left it on the bench. I did not know that there are no police box around there.
I took this picture at Kego park at Tenjin, Fukuoka, this evening. This illumination, a chapel on water, is the same as the last year's one. But this illumination only lasts by Nov. 29th this year. From Dec. 1st, this place will be a skating rink, and thus this illumination will be removed. I'm glad that I was able to see it this year again.
Last week, I stayed my parents house and found marbles, which were my favorites when I was a kid. I brought them back to my apartment and made this image. Can you still see your dreams in marbles? Yes. I can.
This Thursday to Friday, I went to Osaka. Schedule of this Thursday was very tough. I had to join a meeting from 9 am to 8 pm. But after the meeting, I went to Dotonbori, where is a famous downtown of Osaka. Above photos were taken at Dotonbori.
博多ライトアップウォーク2011の写真は、これで最後になります。下の写真は博多小学校の校庭に置かれた STAR DOMEという作品。ドーム内に設置されたライティングボードにさまざまなオブジェを置くと、そのシルエットや色彩がドームを覆う布に映し出される仕組みです。ドームに入ってみると、ボールに金魚が泳いでいて、落ち葉や布を移動したり、子供が手や頭を映したりして、参加者が楽しんでいました。映し出される絵はまるで万華鏡のよう。すごく綺麗でしたよ～。
This blog entry is the last entry about the "Hakata Light-up walk 2011". The above art, named STAR DOME", was settled at a school playground of Hakata elementally school. It was like a huge kaleidoscope, which people was able to make original patterns, using their hands/heads, goldfish in a bowl, autumn leaves, and so on, from inside of the dome. That was fun and so beautiful.
I visited Hakata elementally school at the last. Here I was able to see a light art. I uploaded a video that I took. The art name is "White rain". When I was watching, a staff was walked into the light. The light was strengthened around the staff. That was so beautiful.
I took these photos at Myoraku temple. The first photo is photo of shadow pictures. Aren't they nice? At these night, we were able to enter inside of the temple, where we can't enter usually, because of the light-up event.
For me, these only looks like up-and-coming arts. But actually these are old walls called Hakata-bei. I didn't notice that the Kushida shrine has this wall, although I have visited this shrine for several times. I noticed, for the first time, that the shrine has this wall by the light up event. I really appreciate this event.
Last night, I went to "Hakata Light-up walk 2011", which was held at 5 shrines/temples and an elementary school. The above photos were taken at the Toucho shrine. The illuminated shrines were so beautiful.
Last year, I enjoyed watching balloons at Saga international balloon fiesta. Balloons are very sensitive to weather. Tomorrow is the last day of the festival this year. I hope that many balloons will be able to fly this afternoon and tomorrow.
