This is a picture of Blue Impulse, a Japanese acrobatic flight team. Normally, they form a formation of six aircraft, but in this "cork screw" performance, two aircraft will fly. One aircraft makes a reverse flight, at which time the other aircraft flies around in a circle.At the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, people around the world may be able to see the Blue Impulse of this acrobatic flight team.

I am a black and white Photographer from Japan.
I became interested in cameras when I was in high school.
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 aircraft.
