天空の本 (The Book in the Sky)


 もやもやした雲の中央上部に、本の形を見る。本好きであるせいか、あるいはむしろ、最近ツイッターにハマって、読書時間があまり取れていないうしろめたさのせいか。(2010年12月1日撮影)

At the top center of the wooly clouds, I saw the outline of a book. This is perhaps because of my love of books, or rather because of my shameful days of not having enough time for reading owing to addiction to Twitter. (The photo was taken on December 1, 2010.)
