Great shots Ray. Love how the shapes are so well defined. Which kinda makes my fav the last because the shadows give it that extra definition. Nice catch with the reflection too, I peered twice trying to figure out where the dome ended and the glass mirrors started

So from protesters we moseyed down to the park
Inoshikara Koen is a local dominated park, popular with young couples
There's some crazy urban myth going on there
Couples who either
a) visit the shrine there will break up due to the envious goddess
b) take a ride on the giant swan-shaped paddle boats will break up due to, whatever
Heh every Internet site had a variant of the above
Didn't stop the masses of teen lovers there, flocks of 'em since it was a national holiday of sorts

>>

Buskers aplenty here, young fellas performing magic tricks
I found this to be amusing because it, well, broke my barriers of expectation (comedy 101)
His sign said Honky-tonk music performer!

I tried many of this scene, was surprised this stitched at all
Manually blended 5 shots for the pose I wanted
Added that girl at the far left, thought the smartphone thumb twiddling was an apt contrast with the oldies dancing on the pathway

The autumn colors were also too pretty to go for the muted approach

Thank you Chin
It took Melody a moment to figure that photo out as well. It is taken underneath the ball shooting upward and the main base is covered, as you mentioned, with mirrors. An amazing piece of architecture.
Very nice stitching on this one Chin. Can't have been easy with people moving around like that!

The young vs the old. Macey is 9 and he is 9 months. He is 3 inches taller and 10lbs heavier but experience counts. The takedown! 80-200 4.5 C Auto

It is nice have the time to enjoy some nice warm images after a cold road trip. I transited about 12 hours after an ice situation and there was a surreal scene of accident remnants along the road. Perhaps I should have stopped to capture the scene, sad as it was.
Thanks Ray for the warm welcome in a warm place.

Ronny I love the white flower but I pause to think - where are you finding them this time of year? Isn't it cold where you are?
Ron it looks like your dogs are loving the snow - beautiful animals!

We'll be seeing photos of folks on ice skates soon Ray… the Scandinavians know how to take advantage of winter. Of course, the Scandinavians from Minnesota where I grew up all headed to Florida Texas and Arizona after the first freeze… Those are my RELATIVES, I'm almost ashamed to say. (Except that I moved to California 41 years ago and experience snow only when I go to the top of very high hills on very cold days…)
