This weekend was the 50th 上南戦 (Jounan-sen), the annual competition between 上智大学 (Sophia University) and 南山大学 (Nanzan University). Of course, I took a few pictures of the track and field events, where I attended with the 陸上部 (track club). I didn't actually participate in any of the events, though.

This is one of my favorite pictures of the day:

Click through for the rest, of course.

For the record, we didn't win the event. :(

Also, apparently there's a photography contest for the competition... I need to see if I can submit anything, and pick a favorite picture (or favorites?)
In the mood: tiredtired

I just like the idea that "university" in Japanese is represented by the kanji "大学" which my otaku-Nihongo reads as "big school".

Well, technically, even in Japanese, the word has a Chinese pronunciation.

But yeah. 小学 is exactly what you'd expect, too.

What was up with this stream!?!
Where are the flowers and leaves I've come to appreciate? I couldn't find any. Not even a single shot of water in a gully or maybe a closeup of a manhole cover or some interesting building or shrub. Just a bunch of boring shots of boys n girls running, standing, cheering, etc. Maybe next time you can get a closeup of a starting mark or a water bottle or something cool.


I guess there were a few good shots. Like the people in dresses running and the group photo of the guy looking up. What a mug!
