” f-stop Gear”

f-stop, a brand that specializes in storing ~ carrying Camera Gears
Mine was under ultraviolet, humidity, weight, centrifugal force, and so on for 4 years
I go shooting for outdoor activities, so that I use it quite random sometime
Well, I have never get any major problems
Trastworth” is serious matter for us, for everyone
Though, all materials have Ageing issue which we normally can’t avoid
I believe that there is no gears which perfectly suit to everyone……
But here, this backpack is almost The One which I only need!
This spring while I have time at home.., changed my partner to new one but same model

I have few other products for different situations
Then I pick this one especially during winter-skiing shooting
Tilopa” from f-stop

Obviously I can see the faded colors
I also find suface fabrics are worn out when I put new and old together

Though, this Tilopa design is excellent since it created
But then I found there is new minor change……
It gets closer to my idealにwhich makes me stoked!
This kind of tiny update gives more extra chance to be calm in nature 😉

Like this amazing Outdoor style brand “f-stop” created New product!
Launched High Quality Mask with 3 layers construction
It should effect well to COVID-19, also good to have it for our future environment?
It gives more chances for my nicer life from Mountains to Town 🙂

Washable means much less impact to our mother nature, I think

“This Information is NOT Forgotten, I Always Calculate It”

Changing Seasons settle like Unsettled these days…… (make sense?)
Ski Feilds kick off the new season, anyway!

My friend’s SNS showing their Skiing Topic everyday
Then I tell myself “Don’t rush, it’s not the time for me”
Because I still want to play Soccer a little bit more 😉

So, here is informations about magazines publication after a while since their publication day

“Throw Back to May 2019”

Our Emperor was changed at the end of May.
Thank you for Heisei, and welcome to Reiwa!
There was strange atmosphere for this winter with some late snow falls.
I spent days at Tohoku area at the beginning
Then I headed to Myoko~Shinshu area for the ending
Though, I hadn’t decide which date I finish this winter……
On its Next day, I visited my friend’s place and helped his preparation for next winter
At home, “BRAVOSKI” magazine waited for me with fascinating gears for ’19-’20
Well, I will enjoy green season with playing Soccer!

“Throw Back to April 2019”

The last month of Heisei era
Always unexpected stuff happens which is not just this month
Happy thing is this unplanned happening turns nicely safely
I can be flexible when I go with less greed
Better to be simple than too much asking for what impossible to get
Can I go unselfish style for the last period of 18-19 winter season, which start with new name of era, Reiwa?
😉

“Throw Back to March 2019”

Plans came in to stay at Main Island most of the this month.
I feel myself soaking in Freedom World but I kind of know that the reality is not that freewheeling.
It’s hard to understand its restriction in the word of freedom and I finally found that my mind get confused by that word, “FREEDOM“!
I guess this mean is proving my growth? I’m still just a boy, keep stepping ahead to be a solid human 🙂

February started flying back home from SIA at Denver.
I just remember a matter that I always find something minor problems on my gears in the last minutes to head for trips.
It was happened this time again.
Thought, it normally not fatal one……, lucky me.
This month’s schedule was totally out of my control.
Well, this mean is I didn’t need to decide by myself what I need to do, where to go, etc.
It’s so easy! I’m not good to decide what to do quickly in good timing anyway, so that this follow the flow style is great for me!?

There were no wrench parting with nice welcoming new year moment at main island, drove on Ferry for Hokkaido.
I couldn’t sort the plan out in my brain at all to do researching locations, shooting, airplane, driving, charging energy and so on, then I don’t want to calculate how many days I spent on that big north island after paying traffic fees.
At least, I should be thankful for this full-life-like days! 🙂


Lots of snow on slopes but still not enough to fill all streams for open those area at this point, stay calm and keep that energy for later

I kicked-off another ski season at Geto Kogen Resort again.
We have lack of snow for beginning season for ski firld in past couple of years, but this place, Geto always start winter with enough amount of snow to open all grooming slopes.
Thanks for this filled knee-or-deeper powder snow on slopes which is so gentle to my body.
While many of you should have exciting plan for X’mas night, I had peaceful & mellow hours with my friend’s family.
Then I was sitting in front of TV for the end of 2018. What a luxury night, it was!
Last several years, I was by myself at somewhere parking lot and fell in sleep quite early time.
Thanks for that huge different to be in this luxury space.
I can say “All’s Well That Ends Well”?
