"While on vacation in Japan in October 2018 one early morning I was meandering around a koi pond at KinkuJi the Golden temple. A Japanese woman was strolling in front of me in her colorful kimono and I thought what a wonderful reflection she would make in the pond. As she stopped along the edge of the pond I snapped a few quick pictures of her and then shared them with her, showing her the back of the LCD on my camera. She loved them! I have flipped the image as that's how my eye saw her walking and it registers with my brain better this way."
