And now, first miracle has happened to me in this new year.
The prologue started in December, 2007.
One day, I was checking exhibition schedule to visit Konica Minolta Plaza to see Okada-san's exhibiton held there.
At the same time, i checked past and coming exhibitions and their photographers.
One of them, there was an American photographer.
I just happened to find his website and browse some photos.
I enjoyed the website, because there were many portraits.
I like both shooting and watching portraits.
That's why i wanted to say something to him and mailed him with only saying like “Your website is wonderful ”.Then, next morning i found there was a portrait of my friend in his website!
I was so surprised.
According to her, she visited his exhibition, then was taken.
I felt the world of photography was connected well.
And that's not all...
Several weeks later from the day, yesterday, as I read his blog linked to his website and his your face, I got some strange feeling.
Because I felt he's a little bit familiar to me...
Once I shot someone, I usually remember his/her face.
Actually I had a clue.
So I checked my old contact sheet and found the SHOT of one spring day last night.
I was quite surprised.
I wondered if “the guy” was him.
I'm in Yushima at least twice a week.
It was Saturday in the middle of April, 2007.
When I was walking from Yushima with a camera, two foreign people were walking from the opposite direction (there is Ochanomizu sta.).
Then one of the guys tried to shoot me when we passed near Hijiri bridge, and I also shot the guy.
It was a moment incident but impressive for me.
This morning I mailed him from contact page of his website to tell and make sure that.
And it was cleared the guy was him by his fast reply!
What a coincidence!!
That is so interesting!
The world is small!? The world is wonderful!!
