and back to big.
i got a fast speed (1600) disposable camera
after i dropped my little digital camera
and it stopped working.
we were hoping the fast speed disposable number
would make shots pleasingly grainy
and able to be taken in low light.
not all of them worked out,
but some i kind of liked in a subdued way.
an excellent kissaten on the takasegawa canal in kyoto.
another version of kissaten, this one in a random small town in wakayama whose name i can't recall.
the view was over the small train station. from our 2nd floor aerial view it looked like a tati film set,
with the form and function of the train station and people going about their business everywhere.
i think julian took some photos of it, will try and post later.
i like a sink outdoors
yunomine no yu in the mountains of wakayama prefecture.
in usual style, we didn't have a place to stay organised, and the friendly people recommended a little minshuku there for us.
it was lovely, quiet, great breakfast. loads of gaijin (ie 3), so i guess it is also in lonely planet.
it was called yamane minshuku, and is cheaper if you only get breakfast, not dinner and breakfast.
the blue tiled simple bath was really nice, the waters very restorative. the bus ride into this mountain onsen town is also beautiful,
following the sulphur coloured river into the depths of the mountains.
