The Purpose

This is from the train between Matsumoto and Shinjuku station,Tokyo.
I want you to get the feeling that this is really a travel, a trip, I went distances, It wasn’t just some instant teleportation from one magic spot to another!
The traveling was more than just the means to go between destinations on a map, it was part of the PURPOSE!
and the Rice paddies… I just love the views of passing the rice paddies…
they have something about them that are very powerful
Rice paddies are somehow emblematic for Japanese society
So intimately connected with work, food and landscape.
The reflections in the water
The peaceful, calm beauty
Rice paddies symbols of Japan:
Beauty, labor, stillness, food…
