Day 188

Japan is the only country in the world where you can drive a Bentley, park it on the street with your Louis Vuitton handbag on the front seat, with the doors unlocked, the keys in the ignition AND the engine running while you go into a shop for a while and expect it to be there when you come out.

Day 104 - Birmingham

Birmingham is a big mix of modern and historical architecture filled with a population as diverse as its neighbourhoods including places like Aston, Bourneville, the Chinese and Jewellery Quarters, Gas Street Basin and the shopping metropolis that is the Bull Ring. Even though you could visit Birmingham without even noticing the canals, they are still very much in use and an important feature of the city even today.

Samurai Gelato ice cream shop, Tenjin, Fukuoka (Mamiya 645 Velvia 100)

Samurai Gelato ice cream shop, Tenjin, Fukuoka (Mamiya 645 Velvia 100)

I think I should point out they don't go around with samurai sword chopping up the ice cream. After a chat with the shop staff about my son who was asleep on my chest, he got it down off the wall just for a photo. Unfortunately, the bright sign confused my camera's meter a little and I didn't compensate enough for it. But still I like the photo anyway.
