It's hard to look right at you


Have you ever had the feeling that you really wanted to get to know someone, after meeting them for the first time? Your heart starts to race, and you get nervous at the thought of going up and talking to them, but you know that you must, you must or you will miss this one chance in your entire life. 

"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen is a song that reminds me of warm summer nights, and the excitement and nervousness involved in taking a first step toward someone you'd like to know more.

Sometimes our first impressions can also be wrong, but it's interesting how much information we implicitly gather during a first meeting and first conversation, about how we fit and connect with someone else. It's not just about the pure looks, the contents of the conversation.. but expressions, gestures and body motions, facial cues, vocal tones, and more.
And then after all of that, our mind and body decides for some reason - go for that one.

Now, I leave you with some photos of rainy Tokyo on a Saturday!

Chigiri pan made from rice flour. This bread is sooo good!!

Pigeon sitting in the rain. It actually looked quite comfy. Maybe it was enjoying the shower!
