continue snowing
降り続ける、雪

I like snow.
No matter how dirty and dark the city is, it makes the whole city white and so beautiful in one day. It dramatically changes the expression of the city. Although it is the same place and same time as I always walk by, the city seems like the most innocent and purest place in the whole world.

Snow absorbs sounds. Snow reflects light and re-bounces back by clouds. The city becomes quite and brighter. I like the contrast between the objects and the whiteness of snow. It shows the silhouette of objects and that seems like telling the characteristic of them.

I have been to many places, but places where I’ve lived were always cold. I think that is why the snow makes me feel comfortable and relieved. I like the sounds of snow. That also make me feel relaxed.

雪は、どんなに暗くて汚れた街でも、白く美しく覆いつくしてくれる。いつも通っている道も一変して純粋でイノセントな場所にしてしまう。

ベルリンの街に真っ白な雪がちらほらと何日も何日も降り続けていました。
雪が積もると、積もった雪が光を反射して、辺り全体が明るくなります。曇り空の日は、空も地面も白くなる。下も上も全部真っ白。光が空と地面を乱反射して街全体がフォトスタジオのような、ぼんやりとした白い光を持つのです。それが背景となったこの地球上にある物質たちに骨格が見えて面白いです。

人生の中ずっと寒い地域に住んでいるので、雪が降るとなんだかホッとしている自分がいます。雪が積もると雪が音を吸収していつもと違う風に聴こえるのもホっとする理由の一つかもしれません。
