Photographer's Note

This picture was taken on the edge of the grounds of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. My POV permitted me to view the Nijubashi, two bridges that form an entrance to the inner palace grounds. The stone bridge in front is called Meganebashi (Eyeglass Bridge) for its looks. The bridge in the back was formerly a wooden bridge with two levels, from which the name Nijubashi (Double Bridge) is derived. Buildings on the palace grounds may be seen in the background. The palace buildings and inner gardens are not open to the public. Only on January 2 (New Year's Greeting) and December 23 (Emperor's Birthday), visitors are able to enter the inner palace grounds and see the members of the Imperial Family, who make several public appearances on a balcony.
The palace was destroyed during WWII and subsequently rebuilt. I initially converted this picture to black and white, because of the dull sky. It did not do justice to the bridge or the moat , so you are seeing a beautiful bridge, but not so great of a sky. Again, I used a Nikon F Photomic T with the standard 50mm lens.
