Old Friends

I have discovered that memory can play tricks. The images from our first trip to Japan have been pushed aside as later trips took precedence. It was only two years from our first trip there to our fourth, so the first is both a recent discovery and an ancient memory. The biggest difference was in my processing. Very harsh and contrasty. A gentler approach has revitalised them.

Osaka stood out as the most photogenic city.

I have missed these images. 

First, a burst of orange.

Finally, some mad compression, so common in Japanese cities, but Osaka did it as well as any where.
