The metropolitan area was the heavy snow for the first time in 20 years on that day. It began to snow from yesterday morning and it recorded the snow coverage of 25 cm in the center of Tokyo. And, the transportation, such as a train and an airplane, got confused. It had stopped snowing on this morning. I went to the nearby restaurant to have a meal during the morning. The spectacle in which residents brushed off the snow on which the passage before the house piled up was seen here and there. Although the snowy road before freezing did not fall over easily yet, I still carried out by walking slowly. When I passed in front of the local park in return. Children together with parents was building the snowman or playing the snowball fight. They looks like playing happily to it. Probably, they will be glad since the children who live in the city do not have an opportunity to see snow rash. At the corner of this park, a set of parents and children were playing the swing. The bonds of parents and a child were felt from their face and it was agreeable.

Une tempête c'est souvent plus intéressant pour les enfants que pour nous et on peut le voir sur ta magnifique photo. 25 cm de neige, chez nous c'est une tempête normale mais je prenais ce matin à la TV où y avait 11 morts au Japon et 1000 blessés.Une belle présentation intéressante et ensoleillée.
Toutes mes félicitations,

Snow can create a lot of problems for modern society but it brings a lot of joy for children. You have captured this little boy's joy very well, and his father also seems to like playing in the snow. The light is very good and the colours have acquired a wonderful clarity and crispness. The yellow and blue details of the playground adorn the foreground.

Gledao sam na vestima da je u Japanu posle 20. godina pao veliki sneg ...
Dobar snimak, kontrast i ostrina, lepo pokazano mesto sa snegom i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobar rad sa lepim fotografijama u radionici.
Sneg napravi velike probleme u saobracaju, ali deca ga vole.
I saw on the news that in Japan after 20 year dropped a lot of snow ...
Good picture, contrast and sharpness, nice place shown with snow and a moment of beautiful colors.
Good work with the beautiful photographs in the workshop.
Snow make big traffic problems, but the kids love it.
All the best.

We are having similar scenes here in NYC this week. We had two snowstorms a few days ago, and another one has just started. I like the happy faces of the father and child. Children love the snow, and seem to tolerate the cold better than the adults! I also like the WS photos. I was wondering if people in other big cities do as much shoveling as we do here in NYC, and I guess the citizens of Tokyo are just as busy as we are. :-)

Super treatment, the whiteout works wonderfully well with the heavy snowflakes. A smashing family having fun and absorbing that really draws my eye, such an intimate moment together. Great daily high spirited shot, very sharp, good colours and lighting. Sometime we love this kind of picture just to revitalise ourself. Have a great day, Congrats

Stunning fresh white snow, and the father and son enjoy a shining day, warm sun-rays, Mikio.
Faces expression of both are happy and content.
Marvelous contrast to the shadowed area on picture, fine sharpness and colors applied.

The news about heavy snow in Tokyo has reached our papers here too. It is indeed very interesting to see this sunny picture with people who really seem to enjoy the snow. The complementary pictures are also very interesting!

Excellent snapshot in very good light & clarity. I believe that both, the father and the don are enjoying this rather rare snow in the city. Excellent viewpoint.
Very well done.

Hi dear Mikio. A sweet image of this young father and his little son.It's not only a playground in term sof the swings, but also because of the snow. I am sure that many fond memories are being formed here for both of them Nice bond as the little one looks up trustingly at his dad. Best wishes. Klaudio.
