At Kosokuji. Greens and browns replace the reds and blues of Yokohama.
But the camellia are still pink!

The posh shops aren't open yet so the streets are rather quiet,

Earlier this month we climbed a small mountain called Hinode (which means sunrise). As it is a small mountain, most of the views are of, or through, trees. The tall straight trees are the Japanese cedars which will make people in Tokyo sneeze when they release their pollen in a couple of months time.

While last year was year of scary monster bunnies, we are now safely in the year of the cuddly dragon. The timber merchant celebrates in the usual fashion.

Having practically nailed a "BIF", which is internet photography speak for "Bird In Flight" (here on flickr and third photo down on Chrstmas Day post), I was emboldened to attempt the other sort of BIF - Boy In Flight.
The bigger boys went first, As the boys got smaller and smaller I was sure one was going to get wet, but even the tiniest one flew all the way across.
And here is a group of young adults gazing up at the flying boys, perhaps remembering the days when they too could fly...

2011, a set on Flickr.
That's it. I'm stuck. 24 photos for 2011.
The idea was to get down to 12, but the 24 seem to me to better tell the story of the remarkable year that was 2011. It certainly was the most interesting year of my life so far. The photos are presented in chronological order and weirdly there are none in the 24 that predate the apocalypse in March, the first being taken 2 days later.
