December 31st 2011. A near deserted beach in Chiba prefecture.
Iron seagulls. Broken shells. Coloured glass tumbled smooth by the sea. Sunlight on peeling sky blue paint.
In December Japan has ’forget the year parties’. Change the mind’s tatami, throw away yellowed memories.
Nothing much is happening here.
Once, I used to psyche myself up to take photos. These days I try to calm down a little.
Photojournalism is news. Happenings, or happened.
Not much in these photos. I’m not sure what makes them worth sharing.
A new year.
