This is a balloon race taken in Nagano, Japan. It takes place on a sunny day in the early morning when there is little wind. The appearance of the balloons taking off all at once is a wonderful sight. However, the athletes participating in this race are fighting fiercely, unlike the calm appearance.
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.
