Browsing at a souvenir shop in Arashiyama, Kyoto
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!
It looks like the kind of souvenir shops you find at the shore resort towns. Nice composition with the girl.

Great details and colours. I travelled there when it was hotter than blazes. All the little gift shops I entered offered water served in bamboo cups - gratefully accepted!

@Damon Schreiber: Nice gesture! I'd love to see Arashiyama again covered in snow.
I can't see any packets of sesame biscuits there.... :-0 lol
Cool work Daryl.

@Observing: Cheers! Are you a fan of sesame biscuits then Mike...?
Interesting how, without knowing the pronunciation rules for Japanese-English, "omiyage," can be read in English as something like "oh-my-age," or something like the French pronunciation of homage --"oh mage." And of course "souvenir" is also a French word for an object that represents sort of an homage to a place or experience.
