my wife's camera
















妻がカメラを買った。


一眼レフを使い始めて1年半近くが経ち、
入門機を卒業し上位機種を手に入れた。

ここに一台のカメラがある。


一年半近く毎日使い込まれ、妻に写真の楽しさを教えたカメラ。
妻が構え続けたカメラ。
妻のカメラ。

今妻の手には一回り大きいカメラが収まっている。


私の手元にある今では小さくさえ見えるこのカメラ、
妻のものだったカメラ。
いや、それは今でも妻のカメラだ。


ただ役割を妻が撮るためのものから、
妻を撮るために生まれ変わっただけ。

今日から妻のカメラの新しい役割が始まる。


**************************


my wife bought a camera.
it's been almost a year and a half since she start using SLR and
it is about time to step up from an entry-level model to a high-end.

here's a camera.
it has been used for a year and a half.
it is the one taught my wife the fun of photography.
she kept holding the camera every single day.
my wife's camera.


now she has a brandnew bigger SLR in her hands.
the camera I'm holding in my hand looks small now.
it was my wife's camera.

no! it is still my wife's camera.

it just changed its role.
it was a camera for my wife to take pictures.
and now it is a camera to take my wife's pictures.

the new role of the camera has just begun.
