Today was another busy day leaving little room for a blog post (on the plus side, I cleaned my room, but on the other hand, so to speak, Anthony fractured a finger while playing ball at school), so like yesterday, I'm taking it easy, this time with a few simple images from the Shouseien Temple (渉成園), which we first saw the other day in “First Peek at the Shouseien Temple in Downtown Kyoto”.

I'm normally good about getting an “establishing shot” that shows the context for some detail or other that I want to share, but I seem to have neglected to do that with the stone wall above. If I recall correctly, the wall was about as tall as I am.

Elsewhere in the same wall was an old grinding wheel...

I like the composition of “Bridge”. Nice work.

I think your grinding wheel is a millstone.

Yes, a stone for grinding grain, coffee, beans, and the like. I hope no one thought I was referring to this kind of modern grinding wheel.. —Jeffrey
