Off the Beaten Path, Japan #21: Neighborhood Garden

Brilliantly orange flowers in a garden in Kinshicho

While wandering my local neighborhood of Tokyo, Kinshicho, I found these orange flowers growing in a garden outside an elementary school near my apartment. It looked so good I had to take a shot, and this is what I got. It looks so perfect you’d think it was photoshopped, but actually I only added some relatively heavy vignetting to cut down on peripheral distractions. What do you think?

Model Gwyneira Li poses with flowers

When we visit Japan, all too often we get so wound up in the tourist destinations to get down to earth with everyday life. Today, we take a trip to Tsukuba University, where model Gwyneira Li, a exchange student from China, poses by a patch of flowers on campus shortly after her graduation ceremony.
