Ugh, break-up today.

My fault.

Sigh, like Milan Kundera wrote "We never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come."

Japan of the Moment
So one odd series of photograph I took in Japan were manhole covers. Not every one I saw, but I saw a few that caught my eye, either because of design, or with a splash of cover, or because the hole was in grass instead of asphault, etc...

Kamakura






Hiroshima




Osaka




Ginza


Hakone


Akahabara


Kanazawa






Shim-Matsudo




That last one probably is the one that got me noticing them on one of the first days, but I didn't think to photograph it 'til the end.
