on the top of house of the sun


カメラを持つと人が変わる人がいる。いい画を撮ろうと夢中になり、周囲が目に入らなくなる。たとえば高所恐怖症の人が、ヘリから身を乗り出して撮影をするといったように。

かなりの寒がりの彼女が、標高3000メートルのハレアカラの山頂付近で朝日を捉えようとカメラを構える。アラスカ出身の男も寒さに震える中、寒いよぉ、といいながらも、文句ひとつ言わずその瞬間を待つ。

写真を撮り始めてから一年半。フォトグラファーの風格のでてきた彼女がまぶしい。

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

some people become different persons when they hold cameras in thier hands. too eager to take good pictures, they would be blind to surroundings.
some people lean out of a chopper to shoot, even though they are acrophobia.
the summit of Haleakala is over 10,000 feet and a big guy from Alaska was shivering. even though she was so cold-natured, she didn't make a single complaint and waiting for the very moment of the sunrise. just saying, "I'm freezing" to herself once in a while.
one and a half year has passed since she started taking pictures seriously. so proud of seeing a professional photographer in her.
