when you reach Kyoto send a postcard if you can, and please convey my fond regards to Chih-Hao's girl Yu-Lan
Some potentially good shots marred by lack of sharp focus. I should have read my camera manual before going down to Mt. Airy, I guess. In case anyone is wondering, the heading of each day's entry is a line from a song. This one is from Brian Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy). Eno is largely known for creating "ambient" music and producing the Talking Heads albums, but I really enjoy his late 70's pop music--very clever and idiosyncratic lyrics/music. Those of you who have driven through Cana, with its fifteen foot high plaster chickens and simulacra cowboys, know it's fitting music for the place.
