Time Lapse: Murakami and Kamogawa

My love for reading fiction is negatively correlated with my age.  When I was a kid, I would remember bringing home shortened versions of classic novels from the bookstore.  I had a ton of them.  You name it and I’ve probably read it.

As I grew up, things became very different.  Fiction became literally fiction to me.  It was too out there.  Too perfect.  It’s just one of those moments where you don’t know how it happened.

But then now, reality isn’t really that different from fiction.  There are only moments.  And most of my cherished moments in Kyoto are spent with nature.

Haruki Murakami is the only Japanese writer I know, which makes him my favorite by default.  I plant to read all his books while I’m here.  I didn’t even know he was born in Kyoto until I searched him on Google.  Anyway, I’ve just finished reading Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman about a couple of hours ago.  It was a fascinating collection of moments.  There’s still some beautiful weirdness in there, if you know what I mean.

Here’s this week’s time lapse.  I tried something new today by splitting one sequence into different vibes.

Time Lapse: Rooftops

I didn’t care that much for rooftops until I got here.  The only rooftop that I remembered enjoying back home was the one at my friend’s house in Project 4.

When you live in a city where condos are the norm, it seems that there’s more to it than a smoking spot.

The rooftop of my apartment building is exclusively for laundry.  But that won’t stop me from doing a time lapse on the scenic view from above!  Being on the floor beneath it has its perks after all.

It shows the horizon outlining Western Kyoto.  Captured from 4 to 6PM.

Here you go!
