Feature Post: The Amateur-Photographer (danywithdragons)

A bit of natural talent can go a long way with some time and passion, as proven to me by one of the most random yet intelligent and original people I know (aka my sister). Today marks my very first feature post about the talents and inspriations that surround me from day to day and for this very special occasion, I would like to introduce you to the one and only danywithdragons, or as you may have guessed, my baby sister.
As merely a high school student, danywithdragons utilizes photography as a way of expression throughout her explorations and discoveries in this journey we call life. With her unique eye, danywithdragons captures not only a beautiful scenery, but maintains the sense of nostalgia, tranquility, and comfort in each photo, transporting viewers into another place and time. With each photo, the viewer can almost feel that light breeze or hear and feel the rattling on the train, and take a momentary time travel back to the good old times.
This self-proclaimed amateur-photographer has barely crossed the starting line. Who knows what she'll bring forth in the future?
 
わたしの周りにはすごいな~って思える人がいるのですが、その中の一人が妹です。
妹はDanywithdragonsというインスタのアカウントで写真を投稿しているのですが、最近どんどん上手になっているなと感じています。
カメラ機能がとてもいい携帯に機種変更してから始まった趣味らしいですけど、これからどのように変化していくのが楽しみです。
 
 

"I got a new phone that had a really good camera and I began taking random pictures. This soon became a hobby because all of them would turn out really well. "
 
 
"Right now, it's just a small hobby. I don't see myself doing much with it, but who knows?"
 


"Lately, I've been interested in incorporating shapes and lines. If you look at my recent photos, you can see that there's often some sort of line running through."
 

"I don't like to brag, but I'm a pretty hard core Netflix binge-watcher."



 
A true one-of-a-kind.

アップするの忘れてたちょっと前の

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。



前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


じゃまた。

Tokyo Career Forum

Saturday:
There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my thesis...like I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…

Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
パリが好きな大きな理由の1つが1人でも街を楽しむことができることです。他の人と探検するのもいいですが、1人だからこそ自分のペースでじっくり楽しめたり、美術家で面白いおじいちゃんと話が盛り上がったりすなど新しい出会いがあるんだな、とこの街にに来て改めて思うようになりました。
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar. (*all of my photos showed up yellow, I don't know why but please overlook it)
そんなわたしですが、ある日とりあえず外に出たいと思い、ほとんどノープランの1日を過ごしました。ずっと前からAngelinaでブランチをしたいなと思っていたので、まずはそこに行くことにし…
