...and then that's it for a bit.
We're all settled in back at home. All the laundry is finally done and all the gift distributed!! I've even lit my first candle :)
I've had a fun time getting used to driving on this side of the road though. Weird. I think I've hit the windscreen wipers hundreds of times - more than I did in the US!!
This first pic was taken in Kyoto. These guys are hawking for rickshaw passengers. I just love the trees and the light in this shot!
This is a gorgeous tree that I photographed in Kyoto. I think I'm going to have this shot framed. There was only the last of the autumn colours around when we were there. It must be AMAZING in fall.
Ryan is a big fan of the site Engrish.com and this was such a stunning example.
This is one of the Buddhist temples we visited. I had to lie down on cold marble steps to manage this shot. Andrea, Miyao and Ryan were standing below in the cold cold evening and thought I was quite mad!!
A shot of the Great Lawn in Central Park. I had a very well-timed flock of birds fly straight through the shot :)
Ryan's friend, Ken, took us to the riverwalk in Brooklyn and this is a shot of Manhattan from there. I just love the light in this photo. I don't think it takes any skill to take good shots in this light :)
This one is of Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. The coolest thing about it is that it was absolutely pitch dark when I took this and I couldn't see any of the detail! I just gave night vision a go and I love the result!
This is one of my shots of West Point, Virginia, where Ryan's sister lives.
And that's it for a bit. I've left out pictures of people as I don't know if they want them posted on the net. We had such a blast - can't wait to do it again.
Back to work tomorrow - looking forward to it in one way, but gee, holidays are nice!!
Love to all who read this,
