More Photos

I took a scenic route to uni today , via the park.

It was there that I found some lovely lilies.


and a little boy, holding onto his hat as he chased a runaway kite.


Leaving the park, I passed by our local pachinko parlour (slot-machine arcade), and finally captured on digital film their happy message to the world that shines out brightly just above the front door.

This is of course a quote - the lack of misspellings or grammatical errors giving the game away. They did, however, miss off the last line, which I think I shall paint onto the shop front one night when no-one's around.

“Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.” - George Elliot

Finally, I arrived at Uni. The main hall always makes for a nice photo. I like the way the right hand turret has been left half-demolished, a result of the Second World War. I also like the contrast between this Meiji-era building, and the huge skyscraper just down the road, complete with its rather groovy helipad.
