Haiga 205


Photo by Natalia L. Rudychev of USA, Haiku by Kuniharu Shimizu
Natalia-san emailed me a note of congratulation for my haiga exhibition. Attached to the email was this charming photograph of a sleeping boy. The photo, according to Natalia-san, was taken at The Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego. I digitally manipulated the photo a little, like darkening the backgrounds of the verses, brightening the above-left corner to suggest "morning", and blurred the edges to suggest "dream".
