    Great photos. Great for you. Have always wanted to go to Japan.

    Last night Lori and I had a fire in the fireplace, sat on quilts in front of it, ate Chinese food, drank some heated sake and, well, I'll stop there. It was a great evening. Great. Outside there was a foot of new snow and temps in the 20s. Bright, clear sky.

    Not quite Japan, but quite all right, thank you. I wasn't envying anyone.

    Beautiful pictures. What type of camera did you use? I guess like everyone else it was digital. I wish I could afford a SLR digital.

    Hey Undecided,
    It was just a little Sony Cybershot, 3.2 megapixels, a couple years old. It really does a great job. The secret is to turn the flash permanently off, as it totally screws up the lighting. The camera is smart enough to keep the shutter open appropriately, so if you have steady hands, you can take good shots even in low lighting.
    I have to say, though, I was envious of my traveling companion's camera. It's basically the same model as mine, but two years newer. The physical interface has some improvements, but the biggy is that it is very slim - about the form factor of a deck of cards. Mine felt like a big old clunker in comparison. Of course, the concept of being able to take great pictures with a camera that (easily) fits in your coat pocket would be unthinkable ten years ago, so I guess I shouldn't be complaining. :-)

    Simply beautiful...thanks so much for sharing. I've always wanted to go to Japan too. My grandmother's aunt spent some time there and I have some of the gifts she sent my grandmother from there (some 75 years ago).
