My previous post told the sad tale of forgetting the camera memory card on a family outing. I did that mistake one better yesterday by forgetting the entire camera this time, dutifully arriving at my destination with a nice array of lenses but nothing to put them on.

After a massage and returning home to fetch the camera, I returned to the Nishi Hongwanji Temple (西本願寺) where several huge ginkgo trees are currently in full splendor.

First the memory card, then the camera. I worry about what I'll forget on today's outing (upon which I embark momentarily)!


Comments so far....

My wife keeps telling me that I don’t forget my head, since it is firmly placed on my neck. I hope I’ll never prove her wrong… ;-)

By the way, the picture with the 200 f/2 is lovely. I really regret having sold mine…

Big yellow tree is a Gingko Biloba. According to scientists it is an ancient relic. I see it as evidence that on occasion Nature creates something so perfect it is around for a very long time.
