Dear friends, I just came back from the lake area near Fuji Mountain in Tokyo. It was a great trip, although the weather was kind of bad.... it is simply too foggy to take a perfect shot of the Fuji Mountain. I woke up at 4:30 in the morning and tried to call for a taxi to the shooting location I have in mind. However.....no taxi....at all! As stubborn as I am, I decided to walk for 1.5 hours to the location for the sunrise shot. As I was walking towards to the destination, I have a bad feeling since I can see NOTHING over the lake. The Fuji mountain disappeared. After I arrived, I sat there waiting for the sun to rise. However, there came the sun, and I took my first shot.... here it is... "Ladies and gentlemen, Fuji Mountain Sun Rise!" DSC06961_s by Terence Yam, on Flickr I was disappointed but at the same time.... my stubbornness overpowered my brain again. I decided to sit there and wait for the perfect moment. It was so cold, and luckily I brought with me a bottle of hot coffee.... People started to come in, including some folks who decided to do canoeing on a foggy day. With nothing to do, I took some pictures of them.

Fallen crabapples mix with dead pine needles on an urban sidewalk in Southampton, England. They herald the onset of Fall and the start of the regeneration of life for next Spring. They are earlier than normal this year because of the very low rainfall and high heat but the cycle of life will continue as always. Leica M240 + 50mm Zeiss Sonnar f1.5 @ 250iso. Gerry
