    Richard, I can’t wait to see these at Artwalk. I love the second one here especially.

      = note = 2nd photo from the top referred to above and below has now gone to place 3. Tokyo Station photo is now in place 2 from the top.

      If you’re talking about the second down from the top, then that’s taken from the Shi-jo (“shee-joe”) Bridge, which spans the Kamo River that runs through Kyoto. I took that in the summer of 2003 on a morning walk from the Kyoto Royal Hotel (mentioned in my Three Sisters post) down to the Gion area (mentioned in my “Gion in July” post — currently bottom of the front page). In fact, that photo was taken about 10 minutes before the one featured on that “Gion in July” post.

      Did you receive a message yesterday re: a friend from back in Hyogo-ken days? Email if you did. Or even if you didn’t.

  1. Absolutely stunning photos. First time I’d seen them all as a group. When do you hit the States again; do you know?

      Dale,

      Thank you very much. Coming from the likes of a photographer like you that’s high praise indeed!
      I’m afraid you have my residency situation backwards: I currently live in Birmingham, but I’ve lived
      in Japan twice and for the past 10+ years get over there 2 or 3 times a year. I was last there in
      November and am due to return in about 2 1/2 weeks, guiding a group of Samford Univ MBA students
      through Tokyo, Kyoto, etc.

      All kind things to you and, please, enjoy all the galleries, the stories, and the eclectica all up and
      down the home page(s). Most sincerely,

      Richard

      Well, you’ve now made my day. . . and my week. Thank you so much. These moments really were, really remain, important to me. And, yes, I do want to share them with the world. They are personal. But what good is something beautiful (or important, even if it’s not so beautiful) if it can’t be shared? Sure, not *everything* should be shared with everybody, but these things should be, I believe.

      I invite you to read the stories, too.

      All kind things. And, again, thank you.

      R.
