Anthony

These shots are from about two weeks ago, when the leaves were starting to approach their peak. Out for a walk a few minutes from the house, I was surprised to come across this tall grass, and I thought it would make a nice background.

It wasn't really that cold — maybe 15C (60F) — but being the first cold snap of the season, it felt cold. Lately it's gotten down to 6C (43F). It won't get much colder... the low during the winter in Kyoto is about freezing, with the mid-day average about 5C (41F).

Hi,Jeff. Nice to read that it won’t get much colder there. We’re getting blasted here. (76 was closed due to a car carrier jackknifing,losing it’s load and causing a 20-car pileup last night here in Rootstown.) Lots of snow and hungry birds. Called Mike yesterday with a question and found him putting on sunscreen to head to the beach…in Cabo San Lucas! Nearly hung up on him.
We are enjoying your blog. Anthony is really growing up. We do hope you do frame some of your photos. Ask Fumie to pick out the color and style of the matting.That can make such a difference in a presentation and she has a good eye in that regard.

That first shot of Anthony is my favorite of the three. Is that a cropped shot, or is that how you framed it originally with the camera?

That’s how I framed it. It’s my favorite too, which is why it’s first 🙂
