I walked by this building on a small street somewhere in the town of Lima, and I had to stop for a moment.

The front entrance was filled with some really old dusty furniture randomly.  I saw the door was slightly open and I heard some foot steps from the dark room inside.

I wondered what happened there. The old chairs, tables, pots and the sewing machine….. Strange but beautiful, I thought.

I took a short trip to Lima, Peru a couple of months ago. I really enjoyed walking around the city seeing the different old architecture and all the beautiful colours of the town.

More photos coming soon…

Just a little walk

No rush, empty thoughts were up in the air, only the kind breeze was there.

Hearing the sound of traffic far from my foot steps, I thought of home that was far away.

Paris Colours

Posted in Travel No Comments;

パリ最大規模のフリーマーケット「クリニャンクール(Clignancourt)」ももちろんすごかった。大きすぎて逆に何を買えば良いのか分からない程。何回か通わないとここの本当の面白さはわからなそう。

パリには「パリの色」というものがあるような気がします。それは時に淡い色だったり、もしくはポップな色だったり、そして奥深い色調の組み合わせだったり。フリーマーケットをずっと歩いていて目に焼き付いたのはそんなフランスが持つパリ特有の色のバランス。様々なバリエーションの中にもやっぱりどことなくここでしかない絶妙なニュアンスに惹き付けられます。

***

Full of beautiful colours, different shapes and textures.

Maybe it’s the light, or maybe it’s the air.

Every city has its own particular hues.

I don’t know until I see it. Subtle is real beauty.

Colour Block

Straight to the point: Ernst Caramelle's 'Untitled'

Ernst Caramelle (Austrian, born 1952)

カラー・ブロッキング。

はっとさせられるような色と空間の絶妙な組み合わせに出会う時というのは全く思いもかけない時だったりします。

***

A balance between different colours and space.

I know when I see it, but I don’t know until I see it. Sometimes it’s accidental.

Soft in Pink

Posted in Japan No Comments;

ふわっと淡いピンクと灰色のコンクリートが目に留まり、この色の風合いがとても気に入りました。色あせたような,濁ったような。白や黒のバランスも良い感じ。こういう色の組み合わせは洋服やインテリアにも気になるとこです。

Soft pink, grey, white and black. Faded, cloudy and muted. I continuously like this colour combination throughout fall, winter and spring.
