Bald Eage

Can Anyone Read This?

DSC01698I know this is a random question, but my Japanese is pretty awful, so can anyone else tell me what this says?   I ran into it at Arashiyama near the entrance to the monkey park, so I’m assuming it has something to do with that. But what are the two firework looking things?  Sorry, but I keep imagining all sorts of responses 😛

The Mississippi Bluffs


The changing elements in the rocks kind of fascinate me.

Bright Orange Train

TrainI know it’s a little blurry, but I loved the brightness of this oncoming BNSF train against the harsher browns of the winter landscape.  It was a happy contrast!
