Photographer's Note

Firstly I would like to thank those who wished me a happy birthday yesterday, it makes me feel that I have friends. Only joking.

well on the same day I took this shot, this time the castle being the main focus and not the cherry blossom. Why.... well because there were so many couples surrounding the castle just admiring the sheer beauty of it with all the flood lights lighting it up to its full glory.

For those who might not know, this castle along with many other castles in Japan were destroyed during WW2. This is a newly built castle to realy draw in tourists and boy has it. people flock there from all over the world, every season and festive days.

To be honest, amongst many students that I have taught in Japan, many are not angered by the Americans, alot of them know what happened and I guess forgiving is hard but life moves on. American teachers are liked in the school in Japan alongside the English, Aussies, Canadians etc....

I guess todays note it about moving on with life, war was and is about greed and religion, the Japanese people now are very afraid of anything that could harm them, so instead of having an army, they have a self defence force to protect others and they are doing a very good job about it in Iraq too.

I have not cropped or adjusted anything in this picture.

I hope you like it.

Thanks again,
