Kyoto

I'm in Kyoto.  One of my favourite cities.  All the touristy places were very crowded tonight.  I'd advise anyone with vacation time to go to visit Italy right now because I think every Italian is here in Kyoto with me.   Because of the crowds I wandered away from my usual areas (Gion and Higashiyama) and wound up finding some very beautiful and fairly quiet areas to walk through.

A quiet back street.





A cemetery going up the side of a hill and lit up with lights. 


You get some interesting results with overexposed pictures at night.
