Title: All Things WTAPS./292nd entry「A record」

I always make sure to greet first when I suddenly feel like taking a photograph. Especially in a quiet and peaceful scene, I feel that I might "cause an interruption in the concentration of those there if a shutter sound resounds". That is why I sometimes lag in responding to my urge of wanting to shoot.
But I feel there is an absolute difference in the level of audacity between something shot under the awareness of "I have to shoot" and "I want to shoot".
This is when both cases are under the category work.
I feel strongly about how I should shoot when I have that urge; I realized this as I worked on past archives how when leaving a record, even an everyday scene like a meeting becomes part of a record.

Title: All Things WTAPS./291st entry「As if I am the audience」

It has been quite a while now since I started to get a strong feeling of adoration, like a form of jealousy or even envy, when seeing someone moving about on a skateboard for short distances, and lately this has become prominent. I have an image that "skateboards are things to play with," so I get even more envious when it is used so easily as means of transportation. Things get taken up a notch especially when a beverage in a non-sealed container is in their hand.

Title: All Things WTAPS./269th entry「Exhibition」

There was an exhibition that took place in LA which gathered all of the models from VANS SYNDICATE which is having their 10th anniversary.
Since WTAPS was a part of the line from early on, there was a rush of reminiscence as I saw them being displayed at a place like this.
There was also a slight feeling of loneliness too looking at models and textiles that did not make production that could only be seen here.
It was a festive night where a wide range of people were seriously checking out each model, and I felt how they were only a pair of shoes, but there was no way you could measure the feelings that were put into them.

Title: All Things WTAPS./268th entry「Annual functions」

This year was another year we went to pray at the Tori no Ichi. This year was pretty warm compared to how it usually is around this time of year, and it felt sort of hot wearing our hanten; it was a little weird since Tori no Ichi is usually an event where you feel the end of the year.
But, 2015 will end in a month and a half. I feel that the end of the year is approaching when you spend some quiet and peaceful time appreciating how the year was another year that went by safely.

Title: All Things WTAPS./267th entry「AUTHENTIC S」

The AUTHENTIC S model will be re-released from VANS SYNDICATE which we have been collaborating together with since their start in 2005.
I still wear the same item which I bought back then so I felt sort of surprised when I heard 10 years ago being said.
Mustard color Authentics. A vibrant color that draws attention, but you have to admit that on their own they seem kind of eccentric. But, in my case, instead of an impression of how they look, I have an impression deep down of how this was the start.
