A shisa stands watch in the late afternoon at this Naha marketplace.

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!

that Shisa has a tough job there, looks like a spooky place to me. very nice composition with all the lights drawing the eye into the photo.

Brilliant composition of old symbols with the modern plinth it stands on. The colours are extraordinarily striking, the blues and pinks contrast well against the colour of the Shisa.

This is a very interesting photo here. The icon seems out of place somehow.

@Laurie: Thanks Laurie. Shisa statues are everywhere in Okinawa, they really are a part of the surroundings!

I like the figure and the balance of the detail in the back.
