If you are looking for something positive in this time of uncertainty, this may be for you.
As we can’t physically travel, we might as well travel through the beautiful pictures and videos that others can share online. A Japanese photographer shared stunning footage from Nara Park, and his photos have gone internet crazy!
His photographs show Sika deer enjoying the cherry blossoms.Kazuki Ikeda was organising a photoshoot that day, capturing beautiful shots for a couple before their wedding. And while the pair were the original focus of the shots, in the eyes of the internet users, the deer became the stars of the day.Nara Park is famous for its population of Sika deer.
Last March, the numbers of tourists fell, and locals engaged with social distancing. The deer began to leave the park and roam in the streets looking for food.
A year later, as more people are now allowed outside, it seems that the deer are back in the park and off the streets – settling back where they belong.
The photographer aimed to showcase the city’s beauty and encourage people to enjoy what nature has to offer.
The photographer shared his shots on his social media accounts, intending to encourage people to visit Nara as soon as the threat of COVID had disappeared.
“The pandemic is exhausting the hearts of people all over the world,” the photographer said.
“I hope this video makes people around the world feel at ease”.
