Fumie and I spent today, our 9th anniversary, being sick, me mildly and Fumie miserably. Yuck.

This is a photo I took at the Kyoto Botanical Gardens about a year ago, during the first field trip of Anthony's preschool life. It was the same trip with the funky echium wildpretii plants of an earlier post.

I love the rich colors in this shot, although how rich they appear to you depends on your browser, your OS, your monitor, and many interrelated settings. If things are set up to show accurate colors (as I've worked to ensure my setup is), these colors are incredibly rich. What you see is what the camera saw, without any freaky processing or even mild saturation enhancements. Just spectacular colors.
