This is a picture of Blue Impulse, a Japanese aerobatics squadron. In 2020, due to the influence of COVID-19, all air festivals where their splendid performances can be seen have been cancelled. In 2021, I hope that humanity will overcome COVID-19 and can see the splendid performance of Blue Impulse again.

I am a black and white Photographer from Japan. I became interested in cameras when I was in high school. After that, I didn't shoot for a while, but when I was 30 I started shooting again. At that time, I was mainly shooting landscapes in color. However, around 2018, I started taking monochrome photographs in earnest. I was convinced that taking a work in black and white would more accurately represent the scenery I felt. Since then, I have been shooting mainly Japanese landscapes , streets and aircraft.
