Geta 下駄

Located in the garden of the Kyōto house that I mentioned in the previous post. The light was not fantastic so I turned to the black and white mode on my camera, however I was attracted to how the late afternoon sun struck the geta situated just outside of a sliding glass door leading to a rock garden in the center of the house. The glass in the entire house was original, the leaded variety, warped due to time and environment. Usually reflections are a nuisance, I don't generally take photographs through glass if I can help it, but I like how the distorted glass actually added to the overall atmosphere of the image - the blur and streaks at the top.
