Just a couple photos I took today. It has been raining steadily for the last couple days and the morning was more of the same. Just after noon, the rain stopped and the sky was mostly clear. While out on my walk after my workout, I saw how clouds of mist were hanging in the mountain slopes. I got my camera and peddled south towards the mountains to get a shot. Unfortunately, the houses and power lines were in my way and I never found that shot that I was seeking. However, I did happen upon these two opportunities. You can maybe even see the mist in the air.
Tonight is the parade for Chichibu’s annual festival. My first year here, I attended and posted some photos on my Flickr pages. They are a part of the Japan 2007 set. You have to click on the “more sets” link to get to that set. It’s a very nice set. One of my favourites.
