惹かれる理由
鳥の撮影を楽しんでいるけど、お気に入りの被写体のひとつはブラックヘッドガル(ユリカモメの英語名)。この鳥に愛着を感じるのはその頭の模様。名前の通り頭が黒いんだけど、それは夏だけで、他の季節は白のベースに濃い茶色がのっている。この頭の模様が目を引いた。この模様を見ると13年間飼っていた鳥を思い出す。その鳥はぼくが9才のときに家にきて、手の中で寝るのが好きで、22のときに死んだ。

I enjoy taking pictures of birds, and one of my favorite subjects is the black-headed gull. I'm attached to the bird because of the feather pattern on its head. As the name implies, the gull's head is black, but that is only true in summer. During the other three seasons, its head is white with dark brown patches on the sides. That feather pattern has caught my attention. It reminds me of the bird I kept for thirteen years. The bird came to my family when I was nine; it loved to sleep in my hand, and died when I was 22.
