Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
This is another photo from the owl cafe I visited in Japan. This little fella here was cute but the blackness of the eyes was somewhat creepy.
I live in Ireland - a place where thunderstorms are rare! When I was living in the states for a while, especially in Utah, I witnessed a crazy storm that lasted for hours. I was sitting on the balcony with a friend of mine and some beers until it got so crazy that we had to move inside. I did not even dare to have the tripod on the balcony all the time, fearing the lightning might find its way. Ultimately, it was a night I shall not forget so fast.
A thing I really love about Japan is the way that you find restaurants. Take this door for instance. Looks like a tiny door leading to either nowhere or a tiny space. However, I learned that these seemingly tiny places can be humongous once you go in and downstairs.
I find this interesting - you dont see what you get into before you actually walk downstairs. In good old western tradition, I was searching for restaurants where I can see what going on, check the ambience, if it looks cozy... well, not in JP!
