I was waiting for the acquaintance in the afternoon in Shin-Urayasu on that day. Since enough time was left before time to meet, I dropped in at Kasai Rinkai Park after a long time. Since it was a cheerful good day on Saturday, there were many visitors focusing on a family and a couple. In the lawn inside the garden, the red spider lily(Lycoris radiata) was in bloom so that the visit of autumn might be shown. Although the red spider lily had an image called a red flower only, I was surprised that yellow and a white flower are also besides in bloom. I passed through the lawn which many families relax or are playing, and came out to the seashore facing Tokyo Bay which exists at the tip of a park. In the distance, the Tokyo gate bridge and the white wind power generation in Wakasu district of Kōtō-ku could be seen. An airplane turns the sky toward Haneda Airport occasionally. A set of parents and children was walking the sands along the rocks of the seashore so that might think about something to small happiness.

Hi dear Mikio. A sensitive photo showing us "small Happiness". Mother and child dressed in similar colours enjoying the sea refreshing and tickling their feet. I love the excited gesture of the child with his outstretched hand pointing excitedly to something of interest.It is terrible to think at times like this about contamination of the sea near (and far) from Fukushima. I do like your informative note Mikio- so much in it.Have a great week. Regards. Klaudio.

An impressive bridge structure across the bay, Mikio, and shown in good calrity on the distance, as well as the windmill and airplane. But, the main subject here, is the mother and child stride along the rocky waterfront, as the boy wass noticing something away from the beach.
Lovely moment collected. In my attitude, I'd probably crop the image to leave the half lower part only.

Excellent composition, immaculate framing (as usual). It is a great combination of different aspects of today's world: Technological wonders in the distance (the bridge, windmill, airplane), beautiful nature for the large part (sea and the seashore) and humanity, that is connecting technology to nature, sometimes successfully, some other times miserably.

The effect of shooting into the light really makes this shot as being the most attractive element and the figures are there to make the flow works as a whole. Credit to your efficient well balanced exposure, contrast and minimal colour rendition which suits the mood, Congrats
