My Favorite Photos of 2009 (2/3)

I've looked through all of the 1000 plus photos I took last year and found my favorite 30 shots. This group starts after Yuko and I returned to Japan from the US. You'll also see some photos from my trip to Kyushu. I hope you enjoy them. This is the second set.

The light and composition is wonderful in the photo of the Gyoza chef.
The photo of the apartment buildings which are very " Le Corbusier" is also one of my favorites.

Can't wait for the third set...

I am going to zoom through some of your older pictures and find the one that I always remember I think it is in your Kobe set.
