It was a bright sunny day without any clouds in the blue sky. I was walking the riverside, hearing kids playing baseball. I lay down on fresh green grass, looked up at the sun, which suddenly reminded me of a photograph taken by Hiroshi Hamaya on 15th August 1945 – the end of war date. Then I took a glance at the river, I found a baseball being washed ashore. I picked up the ball unintentionally and threw it up. Only the sun and the ball were in the blue. Instead of taking a baseball glove, I took my camera and threw up the ball again and again to cover the sun.
