  1. Looking at common sights with “new” eyes! 😉

  2. I agree with Wayside Artist. I’m especially fond of picture “08” (third up from bottom) because of the gradation in the upper right.

    Good series!

    • Thank you for your words, John! Speaking of which…I recall that enjoyed looking into a viewfinder when I took this photograph. The overlap of the layer of trees was actualized and I felt the depth like a painting in Chinese ink from this scene.

  3. Nice set of pics! Just one of them might be a bit boring, but they work really well when combined! Good job!! 🙂

    • Thank you for visiting my blog and your comment! I’m very glad you feel so…As you say, this series forms one story by combining these eight scenes. They may be not so much photographs as a subjective image.

        No prob, it was my pleasure to visit it! And I’m glad you understood what I meant on my comment! Nice pics, but as a set they work much better 🙂

  4. hello… i love the contrast and the perspective in this series. the lamp posts and the rails, against the lush forest. the hard steel making its way through the countryside. you have a way of seeing and presenting things, my dear. your compositions speak quietly but strongly. love that… cheers! 😉

    • Sorry for the late reply, San.
      I’m always encouraged by your deep understanding and praise…Many thanks!! If I have technology, I will want you to look at these photographs together with music…

      • hello, there, Yuki… it’s alright and you are most welcome. 🙂 btw, one of these days, i’ll do a post about my favorite photography sites and yours will be there. i hope you won’t mind… keep well 🙂

      • Good evening, San. Is that so? I’m very glad you’ll do a post about my blog! I’m looking forward to seeing your new post. Have a nice day!

  5. Hello- I just wanted to stop by & let you know that I nominated your work for the “Blog of the Year 2012” award! More details can be found here: Keep up the great work & enjoy the day! 🙂

  6. Such great shots. Where is this picture taken?

  7. The density and depth of colour of the trees as well as the sequence of images give this series a cinematographic feel that I like a lot.

    • Thank you very much for your comment!!
      I’m very glad you feel so…Because a chain of these photographs aimed at that effect. Therefore, the ratio of these photographs was set to 16:9.

  8. Beautiful. They are like paintings.
