Utsunomiya Animation Festival 2018

This year's animation festival was held  just next to my condominium the other day.

Many young girls and boys wore animation character costume.

They were called cosplayer in Japanese; that is the word of combination of 'costume' and 'player.'

I took some snap shots and short videos on my way back home from a tennis court.

Roses and Cactuses

   Japan is now in the middle of the rainy season. We have three or four rainy days in a week these days.

I went to a botanical garden with my wife on Sunday last week.

I took pictures of roses in the rain and huge cactuses in the glasshouse.

There was a variety types of roses in the park.

Of course, red roses are the most famous, I know, but you can see yellow flowers and pink flowers.

You can even see mixture of yellow and pink, mixture of red and white colored petals at the garden.

Sunlight was not so strong that I was able to take unexpected soft color pictures.
