This week: A Shirakawa woodblock, a Buddhist building, Minimalist Shinto, a nice landscape, autumn leaf enlightenment, another Shinto scene, and… rice.
Oh, yes… another week, another name change. One of these weeks I’ll settle on a name I like—promise.
Now, on with the review.
Sunday, Jan 16th—Shirakawago Farmhouse Woodblock
Playing with some textures here to give this an old look. These farmhouses are amazing. (LINK)
Monday, Jan 17th—Pagoda In the Woods
An interesting, unique pagoda hidden at a hillside temple. (LINK)
Tuesday, Jan 18th—Stone Gate Minimalism
A close-up of a torii gate, or part of it anyways. These are such simple, beautiful structures. (LINK)
Wednesday, Jan 19th—Train Tracks & Light
“Follow the light” is really good photography advice. Here I followed it literally, chasing it to where I saw this scene. (LINK)
Thursday, Jan 20th—Red Leaf Enlightenment
A close up of a maple leaf. (LINK)
Friday, Jan 21st—Shrine Gates & Grounds—Let’s Go Pray
An awesome Shinto shrine gate here at one of Okazaki’s more famous shrines. See the post for a neat true story about this shrine involving ninja. (LINK)
Saturday, Jan 22nd—Look at All That Rice
Rice patties are nice and peaceful places to walk, especially if you are like me and love the quiet and beauty of nature. Here is a close up of a few of the plants right before harvest. (LINK)
And that is that. Hope you see something there you liked, and hope you had a great week!
