A Christmas lunch with Eva e Matteo

As I have visited Italy many times, I'm quite into Italian people, culture, food so much. However, unfortunately it is not quite easy to find out italian communities even near to Tokyo. Even if you find it, normally it costs relatively expensive to join in.

This time, I have spent my money more than my budget (even though my income was really small at that time) because there was an event which was hosted by two Italians. These two individuals used to be on an educational TV show to lecture italian language so, they are famous amongst Japanese people learning Italian language. I wanted get a chance to meet and speak to them in person.












The event is titled "a Christmas lunch from Eva and Matteo". As the images above show, they cooked and served for the guests. Despite its cost for just two hours or so, it was really fun to have the plates that they cooked and to drink a lot of wine and to have chats with participants and the two hosts.

A casual walk in autumn

A park next to my home shows beautiful seasonal aspects throughout the year.

And then the second half, Serie A1 follows.






























































All in all, it is fun to photograph rhythmic gymnastics or sports activities in general. However I'm not that much satisfied with these images also what I try to do through the pictures. Because obviously, there is no story behind. The photographs that I have posted on this article are just moments that gymnasts performing.
Gymnasts, athletes are so beautiful. But I know that what the pictures represent are not necessarily their beauty. You need a hidden story in the images. This is what I could not manage to do in this particular opportunity unfortunately. Should I blame it on the regulation which was exactly the same as last year? Actually I want to because I am happy with the images back in 2012 before the regulation applied, but should not to do so. To seek another chance, another place, that would be a better option to the next.
