You all know it’s a national holiday in Japan today – Labor Thanksgiving Day, which falls one day before the U.S. Thanksgiving Day this year.
But did you also know it’s Mon’s 7th and Monta’s 6th birthday?
Here are their official birthday portraits!
Mon actually cooperated and sat still for her photo

And here’s Monta
One more of Monta
Four of these photos are actually iPhone “live photos” so I turned the last one of Monta into a 10 second YouTube video. It’s the live photo repeating itself 3 times, but cute. There wasn’t much action in the other live photos.
Anyway, off to celebrate Mon and Monta’s birthday now!
This was taken just before, by the river. It has a sort of a lonely feeling I think, but the lighting is interesting.
It was very nice weather again today, and I took another bike ride along the river. This time near sunset. Here are a few photos I took with 2x optical zoom mode on my iPhone. Somehow the zoom makes them more dramatic. The middle photo shows the Katsushika city sports center.

It was beautiful weather today – not too cold, beautiful skies, perfect for a bike ride along the Nakagawa. Here are some photos I took in the early afternoon.
