One of my favorite photographic subjects! I always love the simple geometry, clean lines and the way light and shadow play with those forms. First of two shots.

NIKON D300 1/320 second F/9.0 ISO 200 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

This does look very Japanese - simple yet beautiful. I love the style.

Gorgeous! You know I love windows and this one is so quaint tucked there between the two eaves. Well seen!

Love the various blacks and the touch of red within the brown. And the composition of vertical layers.

These shapes of clouds are magnificiently seized, I like much the repetition. I particularly like this small window between two, beautiful management of the light Bravo ;)

If you look at the Kanji for warehouse-倉- it looks exactly like the picture you got here- two-tier roof and whole bunch of stuff beneath the roof. I too agree with your comments- clean and simple.

@Howard F.: Yes, yes. This is one case where the kanji matches perfectly. Very easy to understand!
