Late to Grow

I took this photo for a Japanese magazine in February.

It was for the April issue, so I had to find spring very early.

I like the fact only one of the stems is taller, when all the others seem to be growing and blooming evenly.

And I also like the fact some of the stems are late to grow, so there are many flower buds behind flowers.

This photo makes me wonder what it feels like to the ones that are late to grow.

If I go back to the same place, probably I can see the "late bloomers" beautifully blooming now.

People in Japan often like "doing the same as others, being the same as others." Good or bad, that is Japanese mentality.

Through this photo, I wanted the magazine readers to know it is perfectly okay to be different.
