All Alone

hibiya park

tortoise on the lawn
Today, I went to hibiya park again.
When I went to there, it drizzled.
I saw no one around me.
When I took a photo in the park, I found something small moving on the lawn.
It was a tortoise.
Maybe she came from a pond in the park.

This photo was taken on May 5 , 2009.

That post makes me happy: I like turtles , I love rain , I like deserted places and I like benches!..To be alone in the middle of a park gives the feeling to be so free and peaceful!

Nothing is better than taking photos with nobody around to disturb your framing or crossing your sight.
A bit of rain is nothing in exchange of this...
Very good images, I liked the statue of the fountain and the real tortoise.

Why no people at such a beautiful place on a beautiful day?

Great photos.

It is amazing that such life as the tortoise can survive in the heart of Tokyo. I find that more impressive than the pelican sculpture you photographed so well.

In 1857 Hiroshige showed us the site of what is now Hibiya Park. Then, it was the Edo estate of the Nabeshima clan (of the Saga Domain on Kyushu Island). The white-walled and red-gated estate can be seen here.

That hint of a brown wall with tile on top, seen peeking out from behind the pine branches on the far left of the woodblock print, is where the Imperial Hotel is located today.

It's nice to be along in the park sometimes. I can relax better. That's a cute tortoise!
