Holy cow, Rick, these things are incredible.
What beautiful bright colors! These are inspiring... the rainy day must be done. thanks, sp
Glenn,Glad you liked 'em. Funny thing is, they've been sitting in my "vault" for a few years because a) I forgot I had them, and b) they were taken before I knew anything about editing photos (=they needed editing which I couldn't do at the time).Sussah,Thank you Sussah. I'm afraid, though, that it's still raining.
These are amazing photos, indeed! I have a question though - is not dragon a traditional chinese rather than japanese symbol?
Hi Psephis,You're quite right about dragons, but the Confucius Shrine was built by Chinese and was originally designed as a place of worship and learning for Nagasaki's Chinese community.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confucius_Shrine,_Nagasaki
Thanks Rick, I should have known - Confucius was Chinese, it makes perfect sense.
Psephis,No worries. Now go stand in the corner until class is finished!;-)
