@dj.tigersprout: Thanks for visiting. In fact, my camera (not me) does green really well. Before I bought the Nikon d300 I rarely tried greens because my older camera (a wonderful Lumix) didn't do greens well, but did wonderful blues and purples. Anyway, now because of how well my Nikon does green I find myself trying them more than before. Anyway, I can't take any credit. It's just a good camera.
This is like a scene in a video game- a hidden castle waiting for your visit. Beautiful and crisp shot.

Wow! Another beautiful shot! Are all these shots in the same area or different spots?

@Disoriented: Thanks for your comment and for coming by the blog so often. My shots are mostly taken in the area near where I live, called Iwakura (岩倉). It is in the upper northern part of Kyoto. Yet of course I do get out and wander about other parts of the city, and this shot is from the far west.
Like old Chinese ink paintings. The humble house among nature.
Your question about the design - it is the standard photoblog (only one) for Wordpress. I actually hadn't (or can't) tweaked any of the design elements. So congratulate Wordpress, not me, for that. I prefer Wordpress's design to Aminus3 but I love the community nature of Am3. Wordpress is still a platform for text blogging not photoblogging.
