Urban and City
This image is a happy ending to a failed plan. This is Kiyomizu-dera Temple, which is more than just famous and HUGE! The pagoda in the picture is not eve the part I wanted to get a picture of initially. There is a main hall just behind me (from the point of the picture) that would have been even more stunning for a sunset. However, as usual when I make a plan like this, the main halls exterior was completely covered in plastic and is being renovated. Hugh.
Being sad, I walked back towards the entrance when this scene unfolded in front of me - and I was happy to jump on that op!
Going to Venice off-season is a treat! Not many tourists and plenty of areas to explore without being disturbed in any way. This Gondola has just been parked here and the 'Driver' went straight into a restaurant, presumably to get some nice lunch. I love this relaxed scene so much :)
Dublin has loads of little parties and festivities over the weekend - if you are willing to go through the rain, that it. In this case, I found this guy during the so called Large Boat Fest (do not quote me on that). I just got a quick shot before he moved on to supply a somewhat younger audience with some fun - but it was enough time to get the shot I wanted.
