F*ck the past

As has been said so many times by so many people, those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. I doubt this young lady had that quote in mind when she purchased this jacket.

Apparently wearing clothes, particularly jackets and T-shirts, with English expressions on them is considered high fashion in Japan. Other countries too it seems. But often times, if not always, the wearers have no idea of what’s written on their clothing.

I recently saw a photo of a young girl of maybe 14 or 15 wearing a T-shirt that said “I’m a whore!” I’m sure neither she nor her parents had the slightest idea what she was proclaiming so proudly across her chest. Life is funny sometimes.

This photo was taken with a Fujifilm X100F, and is the B&W jpeg file out of the camera, cropped and tweaked slightly in Lightroom CC.

I play guitar and take pictures, although I'm not particularly good at either one. I've been living in Japan for more than 30 years and I work in patent law, although I'm now semi-retired. My purpose in setting up this blog is to be able to post pictures and comments relating to my main interests. It remains to be seen how well that will turn out.
