A completely unseasonal series of photos, taken at Himeji Castle, Hyogo prefecture, back in April.

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!

Yes, springtime for us northerners does seem an age ago - a world of relaxation while we now hunch against the growing cold. Love the sense of joy in this image.

Reno from Madrid, Spain

The people seems to be flowers to...I like this sensation of simbiosis between nature (season) and people style of living. I don't know if you think about this relationship with this picture. Inspirated image.

@Reno: The seasons really mean a lot to people in Japan Reno, for sure. Every season is celebrated in some manner.
