There were blue skies (Minato Tokyo March 13, 2011)

Tokyo 3-13 1

March 13th and the news was not good. But I didn't fly all the way to Japan to sit in a room watching news. One thing to remember, I couldn't do anything to help, very few people were in a position to help at that time. Plus one had to eat. So after receiving a little information from home where a market might be, I headed out. At least a few trains were running even if very few people were out.

Going a different way I got to see some new things. One of the things I love about Tokyo is how inventive architecture is seen as a good thing. You never know what you will find.

The old with the new. Traditional with not so traditional. And even in the most densely packed places there still is some green.

I was shooting these beautiful ume trees from out on the street when the woman sweeping there invited me in to take more photos.

While there may be a cemetery and a shrine here, it was so beautiful and I was touched by her kindness.

With all that was going on to find life in the blooms of the trees and kindness from a stranger was moving.

For some reason the name of Double Tall Mom amused me.

Two nonplussed Japanese bobtail cats. So nice to see a couple of neko.

They didn't seem to be bothered to see me either.
