First Impressions of Kyoto

I am only just now restored to connectivity, which means that I will be playing catchup for the next two weeks and for which I humbly apologize. I am in Hong Kong right now; I’ve finally found a good SD/USB widget, so this borrowed PC that I’m working on will now deign to let me back up my photos, an enormous relief to me. My home machine is for some reason inaccessible, a cause of some distress, but I now have backup space available to me, for which I am grateful.

Remember, kids: If you don’t have your data twice, you don’t have it at all.

Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, a morning in Kyoto:

An Alley In Kyoto

Prayers and pine needles

    I’ve been enjoying your pictures a lot–they make me very nostalgic for the far-off days of, err, last summer, when we stomped around Japan and saw a lot of the same sites.

    Thanks – I’ve had a great time taking them, as you might imagine.

    Unfortunately, actually mailing-away my storage is a non-starter. Turns out, sd cards are quite a bit _more_ expensive here than it is chez home, and I don’t want to strand myself without any. I’ve already burned through more storage than I thought I would, so it’s looking like dvd+postage is going to be the way to go.
