There are still thousands of images from the Japan trip to sort through. As part of a couple of recent conversations, I’ve been looking through them.
So here are a dozen of these Eastern images.
“Just for grins”, as US Midwesterners say.
Triple hat trick — three threes, at a springside, Fushimi Imari Taisha shrine area. Japan. March 2018.
A woodworker’s woodpile. Full of detail. Chock full. Fushimi Imari Taisha shrine area. Japan. March 2018.
Cat on a warm tin roof. Fushimi Imari Taisha shrine area. Japan. March 2018.
Bamboo torii installation. I love things made from bamboo. Fushimi Imari Taisha shrine area. Japan. March 2018.
Assuming that this is Grandparents and Grandchildren. Modern dress and dress from centuries past. In an alley near Inari Station.
Schoolboys on a lunch break. Bridgeside islet on Kamo River, Kyoto, Japan.
Restaurant display/attentiongrabber. Pantsgrabber, too. There’s a story here, but I don’t know what it is. Kyoto, Japan.
Early afternoon on a Kyoto street. Schoolgirl going home. That backpack cost about $400USD. They were the latest thing.
Geometric street drain composition, with random plants. Kyoto, Japan.
Formal watering outside what must be a very, very nice establishment. Kyoto, Japan.
Park wall. Pretty sure this was in the Tokyo Zoo. I love the “distorted” reflection of the wall that you can’t see in the photo.
Temple handrail detail. Weathering-in and aging — with eloquent grace and dignity.
May you, dear reader, also weather-in with grace and dignity.
