Short trip to Manazuru, Kanagawa, Japan.

東京の思い出4・真鶴の友とイタリアの香り

真鶴のお2人とは今まで、国際電話とスカイプで仕事の話を1回ずつ、メールとFBのやりとりを数年、会ったことはないのに、勝手に私たちは親しみを持っていた。帰郷の話をしたら、旧友のごとく自宅に招いてくださった。フィレンツェを発って2週間、そろそろ伊料理が恋しいはずと、何とも粋な計らいで、その朝地元で水揚げされたばかりの新鮮な魚を贅沢に使った料理を披露してくださった。欧州を思わせる邸宅のキッチン一杯に広がるオリーブオイルとニンニクの香り、食後のカフェの味に、フィレンツェにいる錯覚を覚えた。この日は話に夢中で写真を撮り忘れた。大切な思い出は心の中にしまっておこう。

Quai Branly Museum
If you’re lucky enough to have spent a few months bouncing among the 7000 islands that make up the vast oceanic territory we call the Philippines, you’ll have doubtless noticed something extraordinary about this civilization whose artifacts date back some 60 thousand years: there is virtually no ancient architecture. 56 more words

For the artistically stunted among us, the idea of labouring intensely on murals while perched on ladders, cranes and cherry pickers for days or weeks, only to have our beautiful images tagged with graffiti or smashed to rubble, is a profoundly depressing one. 209 more words
