    This is further uphill and closer to Tokugawa Ieyasu's relatively modest tomb. Chinese Gate (Karemon)

    A car built by Sebring in England or perhaps in Sebring, living in a residential carport in Nagoya, Japan. Toyota City is a suburb.
    In the Nagoya train station, Studio Ghibli (across from a larger Disney) has a Cat Bus where you can sit and be photographed.
    Totoro, same movie.
    Also in the station, a whole basement full of food. This patisserie is a big deal in Paris. I've run into its branch in New York.
    Also in the station, Krispy Kreme

    Topaz editing software keeps getting better, so I check high quality older edits against ones done with the latest from Topaz (and Adobe Lightroom). This photo isn't the best from June 4, 2021 at the Newport Wedge, but it has the advantage of being very sharp and relatively free of noise. So the original, first edit, and latest.
    This is getting fussy, but it's taken a while to easily upgrade faces while getting them to look natural, not molded from plastic.
This one has the overly sharpened face and hands
This "final" one could use slightly darker, greener water. I like the face and body. Face and hands look more natural.

    Beach sunflowers are happening. Feb. 6, 2024. Almost certainly truly wild plants, not planted, on the edge of the dune vegetation.
The clump was all but buried in sand a bit later.

    Brown thrasher atop the live oak planted 10 years ago in the front yard. I thought I heard a mockingbird. Got something more interesting.

    Possibly my sharpest moon yet. Full image and cropped portion.

    New Yucca long blade swim fins, fresh out of the box, with an older try at making a long blade fin that didn't quite work. Foot pocket was too narrow.
    White/rust Esteban (ultra soft flex), regular-length yellow w red patch Mobley (ultra soft), and an orange/blue Helios (soft flex).

    Bunny, photo from my front door, and a coral honeysuckle at Heathcote Gardens. The evergreen vine ranges from central Florida to Texas and southern Ontario.
    New sea grape leaves on a huge bush that's been pruned low at South Beach Park. They're already bright green.

    A very formal photo, early morning before opening, at Heathcote Garden in Fort Pierce. The giant red leaves are a caladium variety, white flowered bush to its right is Lantana involucrata, a Florida coastal species that makes a fine yard bush. The arbor has young coral honeysuckles.
    On the lantana bush, a little Atala butterfly.
