Osaka Day 大阪の日… in black & white.

The JR Platform. Kyoto. August 2.

.

Not much to say other than today I and my clients went into Osaka (we’ve been in Kyoto the past couple of days) for meetings today.  About a 1/2-or-so ride by JR Shinkaisoku ( 新快速 ) train.  Can’t talk about the meetings other than they went well and were very informative and that they proved — once again — that a person or a company MUST get on a plane and go to whatever other country it is that they want to, or are even thinking about, do(ing) business in.  Until you’re one the ground and meeting face-to-face, you can’t really understand things, conditions, and all the dozens or hundreds or thousands of subtle things you need to know to properly evaluate matters (opportunities, pros-and-cons, etc.).

As for the following photos, mind you, as with all others on this trip, they’re just made with my Droid 2.0 cellphone.  And I was not on a photographing trip today, but had other more serious things to focus on.  Nevertheless, I was able to take a snapshot here and there.  I decided it was time for a Black & White gallery, too.  One thing:  I apologize to Osaka.  It’s a rich, vibrant, exciting, colorful town.  Sorry if the B&W and limited range of photos here make it look overly . . .  well, you decide.

I start out at Kyoto Station, as that’s where we started out this morning —
