Concrete コンクリート

The Japanese landscape has many colors and if you wanted to capture them and the only medium you had on-hand was crayons, then you better hope that they have one entitled "concrete." Not just for a city scape, because every corner of Japan has been touched or covered in this utilitarian compound of rock aggregate and water. Which is not to say that concrete is not sometimes beautiful, it like the crayons are mearly a medium, and it is ultimatly the job of the construction worker or concrete artisan to shape it.
