I was a member of the jury at the Photography Division of the “Kinki High School Comprehensive Cultural Festival” held in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.
I also gave a lecture with my wife as Chika ＆ Ichio Usui. The lecture included a talk with our former teacher from our photography vocational school days. It was so moving for us to be able to work with him. And we received a lot of comments from students who came to our lecture. We were very happy to look at them.
It was our first experience with the jury and giving lectures, but we had fun and fulfilling days there.
We want to keep trying to improve ourselves!
