These Scenes are part of the days. Where is the boundary between the regular and the irregular? One thing happens all the time, but it is not noticeable. I was taking photographs from ordinary days. Regular sceneries from a bathroom or a bedroom hide some kind of mystery when you separate it from your everyday routine. Even the routine may have conceal different meaning. It is a drama. Drama is a scene off from the regularity. Irregularity. However, the irregularity is not so off from the regularity. They are interchangeable. The boundary between them is less than a mirimeter and we do not know when we got into which sides of phases.
