Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in the city of Echizen-Ōno in Fukui Prefecture in February of three years ago.
Physiographically, this is a basin and becomes a heavy snowfall area in winter. I got down from the station, and was walking along the alley in the city, I met with the spectacle which is shoveling away the snow from the rooftop in the private house. Snow was piling up on the roof deeply. The person in character with the grandfather of this house and two small girls in character with two grandchildren were reaching on the roof. The grandfather had taken down the snow lying with the shovel hard in order to remove snowy pressure. By its side, two girls were playing with snow happily. Somehow, it was an agreeable spectacle. They are serious since people who live in the snowy region have to do snow removal from the rooftop of a house, and snow removal of a road in a daily life.
