This is a photo of Blue Impulse, Japan's Air Self-Defense Force aerobatic team. There was a halo on this day, so my goal was to take a photo of it along with the Blue Impulse. And then the moment arrived. One of the Blue Impulses covered the sun and I was able to see the shape of the halo.

I was born in 1970 in Osaka, Japan. I became interested in cameras when I was in high school. At that time, the goal was to shoot the Blue Impulse, an acrobatic flight team. After that, I didn't shoot for a while, but when I was 30 I started shooting again. At that time, I was mainly shooting landscapes in color. However, around 2018, I started taking monochrome photographs in earnest. I was convinced that taking a work in black and white would more accurately represent the scenery I felt. Since then, I have been shooting mainly Japanese landscapes , streets and airplane.
