Japan 20

Purple Eared Pooch


Field trip to Sensō-ji (a Buddhist temple) in Asakusa area of Tokyo


Better view of multi-color cherry blossoms at Aunt Junko's House.
The color is a little distorted. It was so overcast, I brightened it a bit.

 
not a great pic, but I love the look on my wife's face

Did he Cut One?

LOL--she is giving him the evil eye!

snicker--- I love the regimental look of the class on the field trip--it even looks as if all the shoes are the same brand--expensive Nike's/Adidas somethings!

As always...EXCELLENT!

I love the colors you manage to capture! Absolutely amazing!

Copyboy said...

I can't believe they have real life manga animals posing as pets.

LOL - That was a dog that was waiting for his owner to come out of the store. We had to get a shot of that. Where else would someone have a purple eared dog, just for fun!!!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Do you get to witness "that look" often?

Marlene said...

Your photos impress, as always....love the look on your wife's face!!! Precious!!!

Of course, I love the hilarious comments, too. Did he cut one? LOL!! Manga animals!? ROFL!!

Pat Tillett said...

Cara - Thanks! Nature at work...

John - they all wear uniforms. Thanks!

Copyboy - of course they do! where else, would they?

BMB - as regimented as they are, they seem to get joy from little things like this.

Ms. A - Not too often, I'm happy to say.

Marlene - I like it also. I'm glad I caught it.

Betty - Not the first, and most certainly not the last! thanks! the tree was at my wife's aunt Junko's house. She took great pride in that tree.

Hahahahaha!!! The first photo is so adorable!!!!! Aaawww. I love these photos, Japan seems like a nice country to visit. Hope I will someday..

I love those bikes in the first picture. I have a friend who travels to Japan quite a bit and always brings back pictures of bicycles.

Pat Tillett said...

BD - Oh yeah! I know it well myself...

Biana - Thanks. It's an amazing place. I hope you do get to go.

Aut - Lot's of bikes...everywhere!
Most folks in the city don't have cars.

Neat pictures, Pat... Loved that picture of your wife. The Cherry Blossoms are so pretty... Love it that they are multi-colored. The temple is gorgeous... I love the architecture there. Thanks so much for sharing.

Have a great weekend.

smiles and giggles.

Jimmy said...

I have seen that look on my Daughter-in-laws face looking at my son Ha Ha

Cindy is probably looking at me like that right now :)

Pam said...

Purple pooch is saying to himself, 'What is everyone looking at... haven't they ever seen a bike before'
Your wife is adorable, Pat... are the gorgeous cherry blossoms for her!

buymebarbies said...

@ Mrs. A - Pat was just so happy that it was someone else besides him those eyes were looking at!! LOL!! YUP, gotta say, that was "THE LOOK." ;-) Can't remember if I smelled him or heard him!!

Pat Tillett said...

Faye - I little bit of everything.

Jimmy - I can feel that "look" on me, even if I'm not lookingl...

Pam - thanks! Yup, I grew them just for her...

bmb - I'm glad I was on the other side of the subway car. I never would have seen it if I was sitting next to you.

Aron said...

I went crazy with cherry trees with they bloomed here in New York. I had to hold back from posting more!

Chuck said...

Another great set of pictures...that first one has great colors working. The Look made me feel guilty of something...
