I got a film camera from a fellow Filipino graduate student that I met here in Japan. He didn’ t use it anymore, so he wanted to give it another home. I took it as a sign to pick up my hobby again since I used to take photos everyday way back in high school. This photo is from a collection of photos taken in 2021. My friends and I were on our way to see the Van Gogh Exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. The venue had a reservation system with a designated date and time of entry so we took a taxi to make it in time. The tension was up as we silently cheered for the taxi to go faster. I glance by my window and saw two people walking peacefully. I felt the contrast between us. Us, pumped up, them, serene; the taxi, fast moving, the wind, free-flowing.
