I will get closer and closer.
In October 2009CCO creative center Osaka (former Nomura Shipbuilding site)It is my second encounter since I met him.
The overwhelming presence that the high-rise building behind makes it completely hazy.

Ohiru staring at the building.
It seems like it is attacking humans if it comes from another angle. Even if the people who were in the venue become a bunch, it is probably a sight that makes us think that it may be helpless before the duck.
As I was able to shoot almost from the front, cross the Dojima Bridge and observe the ducks from the opposite shore.
The atmosphere that the invaders look alright.
Compared with the building, truth is that duck is small, but still giving a mysterious accent to the landscape, whether it is a strange presence.
I gradually approached the buttocks of the duck.
By the way the other side of the river is such a narrow sidewalk. It is not a catwalk, but the cat was walking along the way.
When seeing from the front, I could not see it with the light, but I could clearly see the line that entered the body of the duck by turning behind.
As I walked along the shore a little bit, I could see the profile of the duck again.

One piece with the Dojima Ohashi crossed over from the top of the Tamie bridge.

While watching while walking, we bid farewell to duck which hides little by little in the shadow of the sidewalk and arrived home.
The exhibition period is until December 25 and the night light up is done from 17 o'clock to 22 o'clock so people who live in the neighborhood may try going out for a walk.
