Traveling for me isn’t just about seeing and capturing spectacular views. I travel not because I only want to be mesmerized by alluring scenes. I travel because I want to be surprised by things that I don’t expect to see. It’s either they will leave me speechless or bug the curiosity out of me. And when that happens, I’m the happiest!
Remember Danny and I went to Nezu Shrine? This photo was taken on our way back to the station as our little exploration came to an end. Not only did it catch my attention, but also drew questions in my head.
“Is this an abandoned place? I don’t think so. Look at the store! Is the owner weird, untidy or something? Why leave it this way? Maybe not, there must be a reason. What could it be?”
The view wasn’t relaxing like the feeling you get when you see a clear blue sky. It wasn’t superb either. It was rather quaint. As quaint as it was, it still made our little trip noteworthy. You see, the art of seeing is sometimes taken for granted when traveling because one only expects things to be stellar and stuff. Try to look at the “other” things and see what difference they will make.
