”Senko-Hanabi” and “Hakanai”
These pictures are called “Senko-Hanabi(Japanese sparkler)” which is one of things bringing me the real feeling of summer. Especially, the scene reminds me of the end of summer.
Though the size is very tiny, it sparkle intensely and quickly disappear. They are as beautiful as big fireworks in the sky. We can’t catch up on each beautiful moment of sparkles with our eyes but a camera show that they live every moment fully… Their shapes of each moments are stunningly beautiful.
Is it too sentimental?
By the way, I think the Japanese word “Hakanai” is one of the difficult word to explain its meaning in foreign languages.
For instance, the word is translated to English as “fleeting; transient; short-lived; momentary; ephemeral; fickle…etc” in the dictionary.
In my opinion, Senko-Hanabi is also categorized into one of Hakanai things. I’m trying to collect Hakanai things and label it to what make Hakanai.
