Thanks--I'm trying to A/B those to decide, and leaning toward your originals. The second, closer one in B&W seems to at least be an okay alternative to your original; the first seems better as the original (color).

That structure seems like something that could be fertile for some B&Ws.

@johnnyG , I like the smiling faces! :)

Is that hot water?

Hot water? No, just out of the tap. (and I thought I'd answered this Q earlier)

One from this morning's walk with the dog--this is direct from the phone, no tweaks at all:

A few impressions from our last trip to Kamakura:





If I only knew what "fufu manju" are supposed to be... :)

These are late this year. As their name implies, they should have popped a couple weeks ago.

There are some white ones around, but much less common.

Here are some others done with the big camera.

Not sharp enough, but I like the composition:

This one I did lighten up the shadows:

Same idea, different background:
white tendrils-B.png


Those are all details--croppings out of a much larger shot.

Nice shots, @johnnyG !

Here the view from Coredo Muromachi. Ehm, yeah, that's from a restroom window. 😅

View towards Tokyo's Edogawa-ku over Edogawa river yesterday. Notice the bent gras, a strong gale was blowing.

Great shot! That’s R14 crossing into Chiba, if I’m not mistaken. I assume you got your bike. ;)
Thank you! R14 it is, Ichikawabashi. As for the bike, i got one, but i suspect that the chain or gears were meddled somehow to prevent speeding. While wheels spin freely without any resistance, pedalling feels somewhat difficult. Is it a common thing among city bikes in Japan?

Pedaling should be smooth and easy (excepting hills, of course!). Also, quiet. Maybe something needs a look and some adjustments?

It looks new, have you had it back where you bought it for an initial check?
