  1. How interesting. I thought at first these were bullet holes.

    I remember the Japanese baths or neighborhood baths and the people or whole families with towles around their necks, wearing getas, on their way to the public baths. It was a kind of life I had no knowledge of whatsoever and yet it was so common there that nobody thought anything about it. I went to the public baths once or twice in Sendai-shi and enjoyed it very much. I had to learn how to do it at first and the lady who was in charge showed me what I had to do and once I went through all the steps she stood back and allowed me into the water to soak.

    I was also invited once to go to take a bath in a private home of friends. And the water in the wooden tube was scalding hot. When I came out I was as red as a beet.


    Long time ago.

  2. Nice one, Ben. My kind of pic. You'd have to make another red book for Mom!

  3. I really like all the different shades or tones of red in this shot. At first it just looks red but when I studied it a lot of the nuances popped out.
