Kibitsu Shrine, Okayama 7

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 8 September 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The long corridor, following the contours of the underlying land, is another famous feature of this shrine.

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!

This one should be paired with the previous one for comparison! Both are very good in monochrone! The eye can have a great time watching the earth breathing! (BTW: this is how I feel when an earthquake strikes here, my stomach does ups and downs and I no longer know where my heart is!)

Cool perspective, tones, and lines. I'd like to see the top of the frame cropped out. Love the lines to the shrine's corridor.
