It's good luck if you can throw a stone and land it on the beam of a torii.

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!

The girls on the right seem to be estimating range. They'll get one up there. Cool shot.

I think this is my favorite shot so far : it has the scale, the setting and the human interest plus plenty of Lucky Stones !
