こんばんは!今日も一日お疲れ様でした。曇りの今夜の写真は夜景ではなく、真っ青な空の写真を投稿したいと思います。今回は「屋根と青空」をテーマに。屋根と言えば寺院の瓦屋根が大好きです。瓦の様々な形状や葺いた位置などの違いを眺めるだけで安らぎを感じるのです^^ 晴れた先日は横浜の大本山總持寺に行って屋根を撮影してみました。本当に気持いい天気で楽しかった。


Good evening (or morning/afternoon), everyone! I love looking at the roofs of Buddhist temples. The shapes and layout of the “kawara” or tiling are so interesting I could be looking up all day and not minding at all :) It was bright and sunny here the other day so I visited the Soji-ji temple in Yokohama.

Soji-ji, as with most temple grounds, has a cemetery, and this one’s well-known for being the burial place of a famous Japanese actor, Ishihara Yujiro. I didn’t go as far as the cemetery side, but just enjoyed the buildings and park, and took photos of the roofs, making sure to highlight the blue, blue sky. It was a lovely, peaceful place.
