Unharvested persimmons and big moon over Nakano

日没に、収穫されなかった柿と大きな月が、同じ木みたいです。

These persimmon fruits are well past ripe, and just clinging to the branches. At dusk, the moon seems to be the same size as the fruit.

Sunset on balcony garden adds golden hue

日没に、ベランダの庭で金色の明りがきらきらしています。

Sunset on my balcony garden is often spectacular. As the sun drops behind Mount Fuji, the garden glows with golden light. I couldn’t decide which of two photos to use, so here is both the waist high and from the ground views.

Under dramatic sky, inner west Tokyo looks like a movie set

日没の劇的な空の下に、中野と新宿が映画のセットみたいです。ミニチュアというカメラの設定を使いました。

This “miniature” setting on the digital camera makes the Nakano skyline seem less real. This wild jumble of buildings leads all the way to Tokyo city hall and the Opera City tower.
