I'm just not a "big picture" sort of person. It's a blessing and a curse. I'm glad that I can find interesting details to photograph, but it's ridiculous to go somewhere and not be able to depict where I was! And I was even really trying this time . . .
So as I'm s-l-o-w-l-y going through my Japan pictures, I see that once again the ones I particularly like are the ones of little details, such as the row of red paper lanterns hanging at the front of a little temple, or a woman in traditional garb walking down the street in front of me, roof detail on a temple, a monk's hat sitting outside the entrance to another temple, and a box that I believe holds brochures, a box that seemed to gleam out at me from a darkened doorway. The woman in kimono is about as "big picture" as I can find in this set of photos.
You'll just have to take my word that right across the street from where I shot these, the Imperial Palace Gardens spread out before me. Heavy sigh.
