Those Magnificent Men
A beautiful sunny day today and as I was a bit freer I decided to take a walk along the Tsurumi River near Kamoi in Kanagawa Prefecture (the river- basin of which is apparently shaped like a Tapir, at least according to one sign I read) just to see what was happening.
Came across these men flying their remote-control aeroplanes in small a dusty park along side the river. The men were retired and free and enjoyed whizzing their flying machines around the sky in front of a distant Mount Fuji. It looked like fun but Yutako Watanabe, in the top photo, still got a lots of hassle from his wife about the time and money he spent on his expensive toys.
I know the feeling my wife judges every Yen spent on camera gear, that doesn’t earn ten times as much back, something wasteful and thus an expense I had better have some serious justification for.
Anyway I nice day out in the sun, and an interesting encounter with some magnificently relaxed men.
