Title: All Things WTAPS./316th entry「Good old things」

I went to the photo exhibition "Your Choice Know Your Right" which took place at REDOKURO gallery in
Sendagi. It tied into WOLF'S HEAD's photo book from last summer whichthe Director and Shop Staff were also a part of; looking at pieces that are exhibited is different from checking out something published since your eye level is different along with the atmosphere of the place, so it was really a bracing experience.
Afterwards, I felt it would be a waste if I went straight home, so I ventured around the area a bit. I curiously peeped into a store thinking this is it where our Director buys us a little something when he visits Sendagi, and also soaked in the atmosphere of the local shopping street. I came to a conclusion that the core of the old-fashioned hustle and bustle is something that gets passed down from the town, to its people.

Title: All Things WTAPS./315th entry「Another year」

There is a place that I always go to once a year, during a time when it is almost the end of the year.
Unfortunately this year it was raining, the air was cold, and it seemed like there were less people than usual, so while waiting for others to show up, I was able to take my time and observe other shrine visitors and how the street vendors were.
Regardless, the reason people visit here is to come and pray, and since that is something positive, even as I was almost defeated by the cold while I stood near the torii gate, my feelings got uplifted as I saw the almost elated looking bright faces of others. While thinking of all that, the rain stopped, and it almost seemed funny how it started to suddenly get crowded.
When you go to a shrine to pray and the sun is out, I guess you start to feel like something good is going to happen, the air even feels crisp and clear, and I was able to feel pleasantly assured.

Title: All Things WTAPS./314th entry「The color of the sky only during the cold season」

The temperatures are getting closer to winter, and I notice this feeling that I seem to be dressing light. Well after all it is almost mid-November; the end of the year is coming up.
Schedule-wise, things have already shifted into next year, but how I feel things now are quite contrary. It is like I am peeking just a little ahead without looking at my feet; I feel this slight feeling of impatience, is a feeling true to the end of the year.
Things that changed this year, and things that are still the same this year. It seems like there is a lot, but it also seems like it is not only about this year. Either way, 2016 will be over in a month and a half. I was vaguely thinking how regardless of any change or not, what started newly this year will become the foundation for the next year.
