こんばんは!How’s it going today?

For some reason, Koa has been watching HGTV lately. I suspect it’s because some friends of his are into or something. But anyways, it got me thinking about my own television habits and the types of shows I prefer.

My favorite programs are travel shows and documentaries, so PBS is my favorite American channel. And even when I watch TV Japan, I gravitate towards the travel shows, which can be so beautiful. They don’t have to feature exotic places, but can be just strolling around a new part of town. I find the Japanese travel shows are more laid-back and quiet, while the American shows are kicked up a notch, with loud music, quick zooming cut-scenes, and a need to keep things exciting. I like both approaches, but it’s really cool when a show can just stay on a scene for 15 seconds, with just the natural sound of the environment.

My favorite TV shows:

In general, I have little interest in American television (except for baseball games) and prefer TV Japan, doramas, reading blogs, or watching YouTube videos for my entertainment. Of course binge-watching Portlandia is an exception! Love that show. 😆

Today’s photo is of my wife’s Fujifilm X-T10 camera. She primarily uses a 35mm f/2 lens on it, which is a great combo! I think the camera looks classic as well, although I personally prefer all-black versions. I’m glad she like her camera!

Hope you had a great day.

おやすみなさい!
