Gary, you are very generous with your kind comment. Thank you very, very, much. I do wish that there were more people posting their p...

A second look

When I walk around with a camera I try to see things differently. I imagine that someone standing next to me would not give these things a second look.

Re: Let the party begin!

Here's what I saw --- she turns to catch a quick glance at someone who may be taking a sly snapshot in her direction, she's thinking "why's he doing that!" as she instinctively places her hand on her backside in a protective reaction, just in case --- Gary, you're close to the truth.

Re: Let the party begin!

I was delighted to see the Brazilian flag in one of your pictures. A lot of Japanese migrated to Brazil, whose culture is probably the farthest possible from culture in Japan, and they have done very well there. - Murray Hi Murray, yes, there is some kind of connection between Brazil and Japan.

Let the party begin!

Every year when the cherry trees start to blossom it’s a party along the ookagawa river. Venders set up their tents and sell food and drinks and people walk along the river and enjoy the beauty of the blossoms. I went last Sunday to check it out. The blossoms are at about 50% toward full bloom. They...

Re: Life seen through the lens

Mike -- what's the logic behind the location for The Best Kiss???? 8) Hi Wendell, No logic that I know of. I was showing my wife that underpass because it helps us avoid a busy traffic intersection and she noticed the graffiti. It's a nice part of town and graffiti is rarely seen, especially in Eng...

From the looks of your pictures you'll be snowbound until August. If I were you I'd be bonkers with cabin fever by now.
