January is over and my mood is definitely improving. It’s still Baltic but I can see the stretch in the evenings which helps. There have been some phenomenal pink, orange and blue sunsets that I desperately want to take a picture of. Unfortunately, the sunsets happen when I’m driving home and there aren’t very many places to pull over. I can’t just stop and stick on my hazard lights. People do that all the time here, even on corners, but I can’t bring myself to do it. I was taught to never block the road when driving so I see it as a seriously dangerous thing to so. I have a plan for capturing it though so we’ll see how we get on.
I’ve found a few good long walks around Nihonmatsu that I really like. I combined two of them today and took my camera, obviously. I love the way you rarely see two buildings that look the same here. I also love that in random nooks and cranny’s you can find pops of colour and the weirdest, brilliant things.
