Omiya Hachiman Chrysanthemum Exhibit in 2019

In November 2019, I went to the annual Omiya Hachimangu chrysanthemum exhibit. It is usually my first stop each season. And that is why I never get the flowers in bloom, which is a pity. I’m always too early for them. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have unlimited time to do the things you love?

I don’t know how I’ll make that happen, but I’m working on it. Tokyo has so many good blogs that it is hard to get noticed. Many are well-established, while mine is not, especially as I recently moved it back to WordPress. It’s the same with photographers.  There are so many great ones.

So I’m looking at the long game. In this case, it is a call for perseverance. I’ll keep going at what I’m doing and find chances to improve. Of course, I need to look for opportunities to sell myself. That is very important. Keep plugging away, and hopefully, I’ll get to my destination. It sounds corny saying, “Never give up,” but that is what life is about, right?

Anyway, I was lucky at the 2019 Omiya Hachimangu chrysanthemum exhibit. Even though many of the flowers weren’t great, it made me look for those that were. Those that were in good shape were the ones I chose for photographs. I’m pretty happy with this article.
