Lobby of the Hotel Okura, Kyoto Japan

On the way home from the park the other day, Anthony and I stopped by the Hotel Okura to pick up a birthday cake for Fumie's mom. Kyoto's Hotel Okura has a first-floor restaurant with excellent (although extremely expensive) food and cake that's part of our Christmas-Eve Tradition.

Not wanting to leave my camera outside in my bicycle basket, I had it with me, and couldn't help but take a picture of the lovely puffy flowers in the lobby. They're all fairly long hand-held exposures, but seem to have turned out okay.
