Oda Nobunaga was the first feudal lord to master how to maximize gun's efficacy in the Sengoku period in Japan.
The reason for the overwhelming victory in the battle of Nagashino was the intensive use of thousands of guns.
The three-step shot seems to be a fake story, but the advantages of concentration in the available resources are obvious in Lanchester's laws.

Abstract Art On Walls

b0403692_09101995.jpg


The whitish mortar wall is a canvas on which abstract pictures are drawn.
The strong sunlight in summer draws shadows of trees on it.
The cracked surface and the dirt that accumulates on it also draws unpredictable abstract lines.
When shooting abstract pictures like this, I sometimes feel the passersby's gaze around my shoulder, but I don't mind it.

Cloth At A Closed Taylor

b0403692_09095473.jpg


Once there were many tailors on the street corner.
This photo shows samples of the fabric that was left in a closed tailor.
In the past, people chose fabrics and had them tailored to suit each body shape.
However, the increase in ready-made clothes made it difficult for the tailor to survive.
In the 21st century, business attire has become more casual, so there are fewer opportunities to wear suits and tailors have become even fewer.

Paper President

b0403692_09100233.jpg


There is a word called “Hariko No Tora (Paper Tiger)”.
“Hariko” or "Haribote" is a doll made of paper outside and hollow inside.
In other words, it looks nice but the contents are empty, and it is used as a metaphor for “a person who is weak and deceptive”.
This is Mr. President of a certain country disguised in baby boy Haribote I saw at the summer festival, but it was really sarcastic.

The Land Of Smiles

b0403692_21403731.jpg


Thailand is sometimes cited as “The Land of Smiles”.
The reason seems to come from the upbringing at home of the Thai people.
In Thailand, mothers teach their children "If you have something you feel angry, count to 10 to calm down."
As a result, it is said that there are many people smiling with a gentle temperament.

Scorching Heat

b0403692_09194806.jpg


About a month ago, I thought it was cool this summer.
But as soon as the rainy season was over, scorching heat has assaulted us.
Because I'm used to the cool climate, I feel the heat like never before.
Actually, it was much hotter last year when the maximum temperature exceeded 40 degrees Celsius, but our perception is swayed arbitrarily.

Roses Without Colors

The beauty of colorful roses can be understood even by infants who have only puerile discernment.
However, the beauty of roses without colors can only be appreciated by adults who have matured perception.
The rose petals expressed in the black and white epitomize the beauty of subtle shades thanks to their lack of colors.

A Reminder Of Justice

b0403692_10122608.jpg


A stunning stained-glass window is installed on the top of the main stairs of the Nagoya City Archives, which used to be the Nagoya Court of Appeals and District Court.
The design of this window is based on a steelyard which implies a fair trial.
It is extremely difficult for people to judge righteously other people.
Presumably, this beautiful stained glass might have been installed here to remind us of justice, whenever we see it.

Used to enjoy smoking

b0403692_10113911.jpg


I used to be a heavy smoker.
By the turn of the century, smoking regulations became increasingly strict, making it difficult to find a place to smoke.
I found myself so miserable when I was looking for a place to smoke.
One day, I was hospitalized for 15 days and I made my mind to quit smoking after I was discharged.
I didn't experience any kind of withdrawal, and I have not smoked even a single cigarette for 8 years since then.

Respect To The Law

b0403692_17222577.jpg


The building of Nagoya City Archives was originally built as the Nagoya Court of Appeals building.
The design of the building is authoritative and majestic, and its taste is appropriate for a strict and fair trial.
I believe that paying respect to the law is necessary to be a legal state.
But there are some people in the world who despise the law.

I love photographs carved by subtle light and shadows.
