A local Naha house with two shisa guardians at the front. These little creatures can be seen protecting buildings all over Okinawa. Olivier has a good collection of shisa shots... http://akaruiphoto.aminus3.com/image/2008-07-30.html

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!

Pixim from Nice, France

Effective post-procesing, maybe too much on walls, imho. I like the repetitions, windows, pink statuettes. Thus a good framing difficult to obtain ;)

@Pixim: Thanks Pixim!

Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

Really intense colors, and again the caged windows, it's a way of life I guess.

@Observing: Yes, you're right about that, I hardly think about it now!
