Big wave





They are CM photos from Sharp, one of the best companies in LCD(liquid crystal display) television field.

The upper is the famous Ukiyoe, Japanese wood block prints, by Katsushika Hokusai. He astonishingly managed to catch big moment of the beautiful curving lines. Plus, composition of the wave and the mount Fuji is quite dynamic. This dynamic composition is the essence of his works.

Anyway, it is big moment for surfers, too!

I always thought that woodblock was created through imaginative memory. I had no idea one could capture the same scene via photography! Truly amazing.

Welcome and greetings from Seattle Daily Photo!

Welcome to DP and greeting from Nelson, New Zealand.
I'm born in Tokyo and my family still live in Koto-Ku, near the Kasai-Bashi.

It’s good to see one from near my home town. Tokyo is a big place, so I'm really look forward to see through your view. (and Kyoto, of course!)

Thanks for your comments!!

I feel Tokyo is amazing just after oversea trip, too.

I think Hokusai Katsushika, the painter, would be a great photographer if he lived in 20th century because of the amazing composition.

Hokusai Katsushika is a must. Japanese art is so subtile. Delightful !

HOLEY MOLEY! This is incredible! When I finally get around to this shot I'm not quite sure what I'll do. The abbey is near a river...and I might get one of my Scandinavian friends to jump in a spash around....they don't mind the cold so much. This is actually the shot I'm really afraid of attempting.
I don't actually know if Hokusai is popular in England (I'm from NYC, myself). I just remember learning about his great prints from a class on architectural tourism I took...and Bath also became popular through tourist etchings and prints so I thought the juxtaposition was apt. Thanks again for directing me to this photo. Again, wow.
