I don’t usually do a lot of panoramas. They take extra work that I don’t always have patience for; more often than not, panoramic sets sit abandoned in my raw photos directory, waiting futilely for some caring soul to stitch them together. However, when I do put in the time for a panorama, I make it count (insert Dos Equis meme here).
Cats, partying, incredible food… welcome to Friday in Japan!
Bonus! I’m taking a quick break from the Japan posts and throwing an extra one out this week. This is to talk about something near and dear to every Northwesterner’s heart: rain.
The Pacific Northwest has been pummeled by record rainfall this week, creating rivers in the streets and flooding in parking lots. The storms have been quite hazardous, and I hope for everyone’s safety. We are fortunate to live on a hill (though not so much to be in danger of landslides), and I work close enough to walk, so I can avoid the resulting traffic nightmare.
Totoro and robots.. why not?
City and sunshine.. and Ferris wheel!
Apologies for posting somewhat erratically here, but I can only do so when time allows (and quite frankly, I’d rather be on vacation than write about it :)).
Yokohama is a very ritzy city just south of Tokyo. It is an area for shopping and quiet dates on the waterfront. It is most known for its iconic clock Ferris wheel, featured in many anime. I couldn’t get enough of the lights and that wheel!
When the winds shift, causing the city to fade beneath a blanket of haze, it spells photographic opportunity as well as portending distant devastation.
