Another view of the garden in yesterday's shot.

Very interesting. I am intrigued by the mural(?).

@Laurie: Thanks Laurie. It's an old painting on the paper screen, of a samurai on his horse (don't know the full details about it unfortunately...)

A beautiful space. I especially like the light on the wood and stone floor.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve, I was very keen to preserve that.

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

This must have been difficult to make composition decisions about but it resolves very well with just enough structure to lead in the eye.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie!

What's it like to be back home now? Does it seem different?
