Miss Loi 日本日記 – Poignant Memories

(12)
Tuition given in the topic of Study Break from the desk of Miss Loi at 8:31 pm (Singapore time)

Routemap Matsumoto-Hiroshima

A quick hippety-hop onto an antiquated transport

Hiroshima Tram

Brought her to a sacred island by the sea.

Shrine Ladles

Where prayers are supposedly answered,

Prayers

Mandatory touristic shots taken,

THAT Torii

And the ubiquitous locals at ease with visitors.

Deer Posing

Save for the usual egoistical males.

Deer Warning Sign

Feeling energetic,

Miyajima Alley

Miss Loi made an attempt for the summit

Mt Misen Summit

To seek out an eternal flame.

Eternal Flame

Ok she cheated along the way 😛

Mt Misen Ropeway

The view from the top was a bit hazy,

View of Miyajima-Guchi From Mt Misen Summit

As she checked out the latest hiking gear based on sophisticated Japanese technology.

Japanese Hiking Gear

Life’s pretty untroubled now.

Blur Jap Schoolgirls

Compared to sixty-two years ago, when an entire city was obliterated in an instant

Commemorative Watch

By a flash from the sky, as our history textbooks say.

The Holocaust

These days it’s a City of Peace.

Doves of Peace

A testament to mankind’s inhumanity.

A-Bomb Dome

A memorial to those (civilians, women, children and all) whom our history textbooks didn’t say.

Hiroshima Peace Arch

One can only hope their lives were not given up in vain.

Bell of Peace

For each generation must always remember

We Shall Never Forget

That Peace is never overrated

Peace Corridor

And that we are all like fragile paper cranes

Paper Cranes

At the mercy of those who choose to walk away.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park

There lies before us, if we choose, continual progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we, instead, choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal as human beings to human beings: Remember your humanity, and forget the rest. If you can do so, the way lies open to a new Paradise; if you cannot, there lies before you the risk of universal Death.

Albert Einstein
頑張って!!!

    Hmm actually i find the atomic..slaughter to be a good cause. During that time the Japanese were rather egoistic; believing they were better then the western powers. It was only after the atomic display then they came to their senses. So per se it was actually a good thing albeit controversial. Causalities of war.

    ByPasser,

    They were taken using an antiquated Canon Powershot G3. Don't think the photos are anything to shout about. If you look closely, you can even see some specks of dirt from the lens!

    Was hunting for a new cam in Tokyo - but prices weren't spectacular 🙁

    Kiroii, umm ... think the weather's a bit too cold for that particular festival.

    F2, are you an expert in cams? Still looking for one that's fast, with a wide angle lens, and comes with a swiveling LCD screen so that Miss Loi can take sneaky photos of people when they're not looking 🙂

    Expert? ehhhh I wouldn't say that, not a photography buff. But, if you want a swivelling LCD screen, I just happen to own one - an old, circa 1999 Sony Digital camera. 2.1 megapixels (very high end back then) DSC 50. Want it? 😀

    Since then, I haven't seen any digital cameras with swivelling LCD screens. Not on modern cameras anyway. As for wide angle lenses.... you're probably looking at Nikon or Olympia cameras.

    Sorry Miss Loi I can't impress you in this area... I'm a geek (that sucks at math), not a photography buff.... sighz....

    Wah F2, your 2.1 MP 'very high-end' swiveling LCD Sony cam is even more antiquated than Miss Loi's 4 MP 'moderately high-end' swiveling LCD Canon G3!

    Actually Miss Loi did come across two models with swiveling LCDs in Akihabara (Tokyo's Sim Lim Square). They're both from Canon (think one model is called S5 IS or something - should be easily available in Sin too) but found them to be a little slooow.

    Hahah actually 4 megapixels is more than enough for a typical user. My current camera is a Canon too, the Canon Digital Ixus 60 (no it's no longer "very high end"). It's 6 Megapixels, but I set it for 2 Megapixels. I don't forsee ever printing pics anything larger than A4 size, so 2 Megapixels suffice.

    Besides, even my monitor resolution is only 1280x1024 (about 1 megapixel, 1280 x 960), which is LESS than 2 Megapixels (1600 x 1200). So, even if I had wanted to use any of my pics as a wallpaper, the extra pixels are wasted and the computer will resize the pic down and might cause jaggy edges if the resolution is too high.

    I also don't forsee myself getting another digital camera unless this Canon dies and cannot be revived. Same thing for my phone camera - it's 3.2 Megapixels but I fixed it for 2 Megapixels. Extra resolution just waste space on the memory card 🙂

    (sorry for all the geek stuff, just illustrating a point)
