Surprisingly, I find this week’s challenge a little difficult. I want to avoid flowers, trees, grass and the likes because I feel that these are obvious subjects. Instead of focusing on a single element of nature, why not take the whole picture?
This is the view from my dormitory room in Japan–our very own sakura lane, barbecue area and tennis courts. In winter, the sun reflects on the blinding whiteness of snow and students rarely go out. Spring comes and the sakura lane hosts picnics, barbecues and photoshoots. Summer is a time for sports; the tennis courts become busy and lawns serves as a soccer field. Autumn, my favorite season, brings forth dancing colors of red, yellow and orange.
Every morning when I wake up and every night before I sleep, this is my silent companion for almost 8 seasons of my stay in Japan. Silent as it was, the seasons and the changes they bring to the trees, the mountains, the grass are reminders that this landscape is alive, growing every day, every moment like the person who watches it from afar.
