こんばんは!How are you doing? Have a good Monday? 😌

Today’s photo is of the sun (duh). ☀️ But I wanted to see how a sunburst would look with my camera, so I stopped it down to f/16 and shot directly into the light. I wasn’t expecting to see a ring like that, but I think it’s pretty cool-looking. I don’t know if the filter causes it, or the lens itself. At any rate, I like seeing the sunburst effect in streetlights and other bright areas in night shots. It looks very nice!

Tonight I watched the first episode of a “taiga” drama. This type of tv program is a historical Japanese story, and it airs for a whole year. I haven’t watched a whole series, however, “Yae’s Sakura” is supposed to be really good, and it stars one of my favorite actresses, Ayase Haruka. This show is 50 episodes long, and the first episode was over an hour! But I am pretty sure each subsequent episode is 45 minutes long. I’ll update as the series progresses, but the first episode was pretty good, and it has a pretty amazing cast. So far, so good!

I mentioned in yesterday’s blog post that I created a flower arrangement for Valentines. Well, here’s the photo of my “masterpiece”! 😜

I think it turned out pretty good for a first effort!

Well, I am off to check my Instagram and read a bit before bed. おやすみなさい!
