Note: the photographs below are not exactly “arty”, nor are they meant to be.  They are, rather, just photos of an innovatively designed house in Kyoto that I want any architects who visit this gallery to see.

    They are all incredible. Such beauty and delight. Serene and historic. Great work!

      Thanks, Michelle –

      Of course the inside of Osaka Dome (you’ll note that those thingies in the middle of the shot are loud speakers*) is note particularly “serene” during a game, but your point is well taken and, yes, there are several photos of quite serene places, and historical for sure.

      Again, thanks for visiting and commenting and all!

      *If you go to the right-hand side of the page, enter “Play Ball!” into the site’s Search Engine and bring up the Play Ball! piece I did in June, you can see/hear a short vid (@ the very end of the piece) from inside Osaka Dome, in the waning minutes of the Buffaloes getting stomped by the Swallows.
