Omotesando

. . . down Omotesando Boulevard in cool air, bright sun, most leaves fallen from the zelkova trees … people’s feet soft on the sidewalk, conversation soft in the air . . .

Aoyama, morning

. . . down the designer fashion street in the cool air, bright sun warm on my face . . . window displays passing by . . . autumn sidewalk leaves . . .

… diamonding …

… sunlight diamonding the water as the bus to Tokyo from Narita crosses a series of bridges into Shinagawa …

… nice moment …

. . . down the Aoyama fashion street to teach a morning class … bright sun, blue sky, helicopter lazy-riding overhead … display window floor spread with autumn leaves …

… Omotesando, fall …

… walking Omotesando … cloudy, damp … fallen leaves, pretty colors … sweet-sour starting-to-decay smell …
