Surrounded by Colour

I do believe in the importance of the colours we place around ourselves, this is my favourite place to practice yoga right now.

Rescue Bike

This bicycle was on it's way to the dump, I begged the owner to let me try and see if it was rideable.  First changed the brakes, then the cogs, and gear wiring, was given new wheels and finally a year on, the finishing but essential touch, a new saddle.  Very happy cyclist here.

Akebia

One of my favourite things to eat right now.  Inside the flesh, although filled with seeds, is deliciously sweet.  The skin, bitter, but am hooked, especially when fried and smothered in garlic, the fact that it is the most beautiful purple hue helps in the attraction of this strange fruit.

Okama Lake

This gem is at the top of Mt. Zao. My local boarding mountain in Yamagata City.  It is a dormant volcano and this is the crater, fingers crossed it doesn't wake up anytime soon.

Beautiful Coloured Rocks

Looked even better through my polaroid sunglasses, oranges, purples and gray-blues.

Still in Sakata Museum

Blown glass scattered with garden back drop.  This was all so much better than the actual exhibition.

Sakata City Art Museum

Just loved this building, it was made to feel as though you are taking a walking through the forest.  Very nicely done, inside yet out.  Had a mini nap on the sofa!  Mind you, would much prefer to actually be out in the forest.
