This Evening's Sunset in Kyoto

Kyoto had a nice sunset this evening, nicer pehaps than those I've posted about of late (here, here, here, here, and here), but not as good as the best I've ever seen, and not, unfortunately viewed from the photogenic Shogunzuka overlook where I've gotten a lot of nice sunset shots over the years.

Still, it's always nice to have a nice sunset.

Two off-topic questions: are those TV antennas in the second photo? And, in your city do most people see television via cable or antenna? Just curious. Thanks!

Looks like it, but I don’t know for sure. I don’t watch TV, nor do I know much about folks watch it, except that I believe that there are no longer analog broadcasts, so many (most?) of the TV antennas one sees (and one sees a lot) are left over from a bygone day. I recall that there were government programs to help folks replace their analog antennas with ones appropriate for digital, so those certainly do exist, and are perhaps the only way for folks in a private house (as opposed to a big condo unit with wired cable) to get broadcast television. —Jeffrey

Jeffrey – Thanks for the info. We also went through a transition from analog to digital (on our cable), and received a set-top converter box to help the transition. Our cable happens to be a wire, but I recently visited a friend whose connection is via a small, square wi-fi antenna (because there is no cable at his house). Tom

Hi Jeff, Today’s sunset is exquisite. The colors are warm, and the temple in the foreground shows that it was taken in an authentic
Oriental setting. The five shot sequence of the independent little girl and her understanding Papa is heart-warming. Keep up with the
many wonderful pictures of Kyoto. Father Mac in Kyoto
