Kyoto 2017 – Vermillion Cafe

On our way down Mt Inari we came across Vermillion Cafe, serving artisan coffee (with art!) and beautiful seating area on their porch.

The weather was cool – a low 20s day – and from where we were seated we could take in the fresh mountain air and admire the nature all around us.
Stayed there for close to an hour and would not have minded staying longer, if our stomachs and watches didn’t remind us that it was almost time for lunch…

Revival of Haru the Harinezumi

About 3 weeks ago, when I was still enjoying the period of siesta in between jobs, I opened the drawer one day to find this forgotten camera.

Haru the Harinezumi. Not used since 2015! Or thereabouts. Battery had totally died, and I had to get a new one.

Spent a part of the day at the Botanic Gardens, playing with light, shadows, and the marco mode.

Seems like going back to the simple, raw stuff could really enable us to see things differently.
