Photo – Mad Shisa Before the entrance into Kaneko Temple there is a large set of stairs leading up to it as well as a newer town hall / temple building which the community will get together at for town meetings. At the stairs proceeding up there is this Shisa almost guarding over the stairs to the temple.
Photo – Statue At Temple’s Entrance These statues are at almost every temple however the amount of moss always varies largely.

Photo – Stones To Rails With this photo I must have merged together near 10 different layers to get the colors in the spots I wanted. It took a lot longer then it usually does for me to get a photo ready but i feel pretty happy with the end results.

I hadn’t even realized I took this set but I am glad I did. I remember right behind me there was Chip and Dale which are extremely popular Disney characters here in [...]
Photo – Fujiyoshida Sengen Temple Tori I tried to line the sun up in alignment with the Tori Gate to try to get a sun flarish effect. unfortunately it made the spot in front of the temple slightly misty. When you look at that pretend its a ghost attacking Scott and It makes the picture less ugly.
Photo – Frozen In Time Fujiyoshida Sengen I must have taken 50 different exposures of this statue, and i feel I could have taken 50 more. Something about these Dragons and the water really pulls me in. I might be the only one but i just love the look and feel of them. This is one of the [...]
