のんびり

City fishing next to Ichigaya station

釣り堀でのんびりやっている人が市ヶ谷ホームから見えます。釣りと電車の対照がきれいですね。

Day and night you can see people fishing in these stocked ponds on the Outer Moat, across from Ichigaya station. The contrast between the busy transit corridor, the beautiful moat, and the leisurely city fishers is enchanting.

Small plum tree bonsai in full bloom

お店の外で、盆栽の梅がのんびりと咲いています。

I love how this extravagantly blooming plum tree is sitting outdoors at night, unprotected and unmindful of its surroundings.
