This is a little bizarre (as opposed to a little bazaar..) or maybe is not as I have a postcard of this very same print on a wall. Have a couple others too. Goes with the Seurat's 'Bathers at Asnieres' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathers_at_Asni%C3%A8res

and Turner's 'The Fighting Temeraire'

plus a couple of local history ones too. I used to send woodblock 'prints' to people here in London/the UK when living in Japan - even when getting them from the Oriental Bazaar (how bizarre!) on Ometesando they were usually nice and cheap but of course the recipients here would think otherwise - ;o)

Ahem, that should of course be 'OmOtesando', desu ne...

The originals are on display this month in Harajuku at the Ota - of all places. And as I hinted at, tonight is full moon.

That autumn full moon has been a great inspiration here - after this long hot summer I think I understand why.

I am not unphased/unfazed myself by the full moon.

T, I also keep special postcards next to my desk, near my computer, for inspiration.

P, your recent image of the full moon is terrific, I hope many Kurashi readers will head over to your Pacific Island blog for a close encounter of the third kind. Now know what kind of camera I should aim for!

Blush. Thanks. It is really considered a "mid-level" camera by professionals. And I am something less than mid-level as a photographer. :) But glad you like the pic.

Isn't there a spectacular mountain-top observatory in the vicinity of Hawaii. Know there is another mega-one somewhere in Chile.
