  1. Very nice Kendo series…the theme of stillness and motion is a perfect description. The 1st and 3rd shots are great ~ you can see a bit of the concentration in the eyes and face, very powerful. Then of course the strike in the second shot is really a classic. Well done Takami, really enjoyed these.

    • Thank you for taking the time to look at these and offer your feedback! I really liked the 1st shot, my husband liked the 3rd. I felt (hoped) it conveyed a little of the energy and focus of the match. As for the 2nd one, it’s a simple shot and perhaps not as interesting as the others, but – I loved how the people sitting behind the desks all had different expressions when watching the match 😀

      • The 1st and 3rd shots were my favorites, with the 1st one I think the best (some how the concentration and focus of his eyes seem more intense ~ even though the mask seems to hide them, it also seems to make them more noticeable. Cheers!

    • I am glad you enjoyed the Kendo / martial arts theme. I love making photos like these too, and will try to take more during the year 😀 As always, thank you very much for your feedback & comments!

  2. こんにちは。
    これはこの前の恩師の方の試合ですか?
    お年を召した方のようですが凛々しくてかっこいいですね。
    面からのぞく表情も素敵です。
    集中力が写真から伝わってくるような気がします。

    • あわせかがみ様
      こんばんは。返事が遅くなり申し訳ありません(><;)
      はい、そうです!「モデル(?)さん」はこの前の恩師です☆
      今年86歳になりますが、いざ勝負のときは年齢を全く感じさせないのです(笑)
      本当に、心から尊敬します ^^

    • Thank you, Kanemoto-san. I also think Kendo is a perfect subject for B&W.
      To answer your question…I don’t think I’m “bad” at it, but I’m sure there are many people who are much better/skilled than me 😀 😀

  3. Hello my dear Takami, I have already posted another short story inspired in a fantastic photo of tigers. Also I already put a Japanese version for your friend using the Google translator. 🙂 a little help for your fans and friends to understand the story easily.

  4. A wonderful series, Takami. These shots are perfectly suited to black and white. I like all of your shots–there are so many interesting details to take in, but I particularly like the last portrait–I find it very pleasing. It is amazing to see your teacher, a master at 85 years old. Kendo looks like a fascinating, demanding and challenging practice. Congratulations to you for practicing the discipline for such a long time. Very nice work. :))

    • Aww…thank you (a million times!) for your comment and feedback. My husband really likes the last portrait too 😉

      My Kendo teacher is really a wonderful person with a great sense of humour. I am sure you would enjoy talking to him (and he’d love your photos for sure!) 😀 He is a great inspiration to me, both in “life” and Kendo.

      Next week will be duckies, and the week after that will be a post dedicated to you and another friend who gives me inspiration 😀 ❤

      Wish you and your partner a lovely evening!!

      • Takami, I would love to meet your esteemed teacher. I am certain that he is a teacher of many kinds of wisdom, not just Kendo; and I have no doubt that I too would be inspired by him.

        I’m looking forward to seeing more of your duckies. And thank you for the honour of dedicating a future post to me–I am humbled and honoured. I look forward to it. Wishing you a wonderful day! :))

    • Hello dear Yoshimi!
      It’s rainy in Tokyo because of the typhoon 😦
      I am very happy you enjoyed these photos of Kendo 🙂
      Oh, that’s wonderful your brother practised Aikido, and you also have a boken 😀
      I hope you have a great evening, too!
      – Takami ❤

    • Hello Gin,
      Good evening from rainy Tokyo.
      Yes! It’s Kendo 🙂 I am so happy you enjoyed this series. I thought Kendo is a good subject for contrast, and especially for B&W photos.
      The man in this series is my Kendo teacher. He is 85 years old, and practising Kendo for over 50 years! 😀
      Thank you again for your comment,
      Takami

  5. こんにちは。
    一枚目と二枚目の写真は別の試合ですよね。
    カメラアングルの違う写真の組み合わせが上手いですね。
    私は以前、空手の写真などを撮影していたことがありますが、観覧席からでした。
    一枚目の写真に感じられる静かな中の気迫のようなものはすごいですね。
    すばらしいです。

    • Chunさま☆
      こんにちは。台風の影響で雨が続いていますが、大丈夫でしょうか?
      いつもコメント、ご感想を頂きありがとうございます。
      その通りです!2枚目の写真は観覧席から撮ったものです。見る(撮る)角度によって雰囲気も変わってきますね^^ 因みに、写真の「モデルさん」は私の恩師です、、 🙂
      Chunさんの空手のお写真、ぜひ拝見したいです!
      😀 😀 😀

      • お気遣いありがとうございます。 🙂
        私のところは台風の影響はまだです。
        むしろコースによってはTakamiさんのところのほうが影響でるかも。
        スポーツ写真は静だけではなく動も必要ですね。
        私のように静ばかり撮影していると動は苦手になります。 X)
        でもあなたの写真をみていると、また挑戦してみようかって気になります。
        写真っておもしろいですね。 🙂
