Restaurant building along the riverside in Kyoto. I'm sure someone else in the community posted a picture of this...

This photo is a bit too small and narrow, but you get the idea. I remember being frustrated at not being able to catch the scale of this scene.

That's the last of these older archive shots from Kyoto that I found recently, it was a nice surprise when I discovered them again!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Look carefully ... You were filmed ;)

@KIJI: I saw! On the left side! But actually just coincidence... I was too far away and it was too dark outside for anyone to see me, plus I took the shot from a very busy area, crossing a bridge!

I like the idea here, I think you found a great suibject matter, so many little gatherings, a window onto the world of others.

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Very well seen. Is it where there are outside terrasses along Kamo river? I use to walk along that river when I was living in Kyoto and go to the starbucks cafe which have a beautiful view on the river.

@akarui: That's the place Olivier! When did you live in Kyoto? What made you move to Kagoshima?

Doug from Long Beach, United States

Ah, the frustration of photography: how it often fails to fully capture what it's like to be there in person. But this is still very interesting.
