Day 315 – tori

Tori gates are an ever-present backdrop in Japan, a beacon of tradition intersecting even the busiest street. When I first arrived in Japan I would notice them all the time. After a while however, they started to blend into the background – like a red bus in London, an old american car in Havana or a wandering cow in New Delhi.

Every now and again though, one grabs my attention and I remember that they can make a striking subject for a photo.

    Really nice photo, and I very much like your description: “After a while however, they started to blend into the background – like a red bus in London, an old american car in Havana or a wandering cow in New Delhi” Amazing how something so significant can lose itself in the shuffle of life after a period of time.
