Art in Yushima Seido

湯島聖堂 (Confucian temple Yushima, Bunkyō, Tokyo, Japan – 2010)

More than 10 years have passed since we lived in Japan for a year. 2020 is the year in which every day seems the same. 2010 was far from this reality. Every day was different. Take the day I took today’s photo for instance. I probably wasn’t teaching, and the weather was not good. So I got on the train, rode it to a station I hadn’t gotten off of before, and then roamed the neighborhood–discovering new places and eating at new restaurants.

I wandered into a Confucian temple called Yushima Seido where many art pieces were on display, most getting wet in the downpour that was happening.

Sorry, I don’t have the name of the piece or the artist’s name. Now I know better and take a photo of the name of the work and artist whenever I shoot a piece of art.

Today’s photo comes from more than 10 years ago. Have you ever spent an evening on a Yakatabune? I haven’t. Yet another reason to get back to Japan someday.

Throwback Thursday

早稲田大学

Today’s photo comes from seven years ago when I was checking out my old stomping grounds from ten years ago. Alas, I have, unfortunately, not been back to Japan since.

I’ve been using Topaz DeNoise for several years now. They have a new version called DeNoise AI that also comes with Clear AI, and it’s $20 off for another week or so through this link. Enter BATCH15 at checkout for another 15% off bringing the price down to $50.

Before using Topaz Denoise AI (and Photoshop Adobe CC to straighten things) on the above image, the photo looked like what you see below.

If you click on the images to get to their full sizes you’ll be able to see the differences better.
