It's almost April and no photo thread yet!

In some parts of Tokyo the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, so I'll start with a few mediocre shots taken on yesterday's commute. Share your pink! :)

No pastime is too exotic: practising the alphorn in our neighbourhood park. :emoji_relaxed:

A few photos (iPhone 6) from yesterday's ride. Felt like summer.

I spent June and July in Hawaii (captain cook, big isle) and while this is not japan, there are also hibiscus here in Japan, so maybe this is okay.

I like this for its imperfection as a bloom, surrounding colors (not only the green), its depth, and maybe its Georgia O'Keeffe-iness. Or just because...

As long as I'm on food, a typical Friday (our temaki day), this one for the two of us, probably a couple few weeks ago.

And Friday came on Sunday this week--an hour or so ago:

This seems to turn into food pOrn. :emoji_grinning:

This must have been the filthiest teishoku place I've ever visited (judging by their kitchen and the restrooms), but the food was outstanding.

I'm out with the dog pretty regularly, so a couple flower pics with my phone:

We went by this same spot yesterday, and if this was there then I missed it. It rained last night, so it's wet.

And our dog was interested. Maybe someone's on-the-sly art installation?

Although I don't deal with pets but I opine, your pet is cute and sweet. Also your room is clean and has a good and pleasant decoration.

I mostly am interested to know what your specialty is? Apparently one of your art is playing guitar and also it seems you are a studious person.

Thank you for sharing this interesting post :)

I was out with the dog noon-ish and didn't have my phone along--and saw one rainbow. Then it started sprinkling so we headed home. A little later, this, out the porch window. Not too strong, but close, and there's a very faint one up higher:

I have a nine year old Honda Fit. It suits me fine for the shopping that I do--groceries, beer, stuff for DIY things around the house, etc.

But a guy's gotta dream, ya know...?

He used jref itself. But they might be hosted elsewhere. Try a different browser. Or perhaps your country is blocking some sites?

Hi, mdchaachi
Now that I returned to the JF they appeared. I think a temporary problem was the cause of the issue, or maybe the low speed internet which I use.

Thank you :)

it seems very new. it is like it is coming out from its factory just now. Is it the same your car or is a new model of the brand?
I wish I had the one.
At present, my car is this type but an older one.
