The garden of Sanjusangen-do Temple.
You can't take photos of the Buddhas with thousand arms,
but you can of the beautiful foliage (28 Nov 14)

Pianomania has been away for a while, which explains the absence of reviews between late November and early December. And this is the reason: a short week-long vacation to Kyoto, Japan to see the autumn colours. Here are some of my best pictures. The visions simply defy words, so I shall not comment further, except as to state where these beautiful trees may be found.
