Weekly Photo Challenge: (Extra)ordinary

Tokyo Cyclist

Tokyo Cyclist

Wet day, dull sky, boring buildings and two bridges with clashing colors that nearly hurt my eyes. Everything was so unappealing to me. But when this cyclist came along, he was like the last piece of the puzzle that pulled all the other ordinary things together. Somehow, it became just right 🙂

No fences. Just walls. Everyone living within their clear-cut boundaries.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration

Ginzan Onsen

Ginzan Onsen

Wooden inns along the Ginzan River, Japan. This is the place that inspired Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿) in making the Academy Award-winning animated film “Spirited Away”. There is a nostalgic charm and it is magical at night, especially when it is snowing.

My response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration … it doesn’t have to be my inspiration, does it?
