New Growth

One of my all-time favorite subjects: the traditional storehouse (kura, 倉) ! These are attached to old houses and because they are built of mud and are fireproof (their walls are thicker than the length of your hand) they are used to safely store family treasures. From my viewpoint, there is something so pleasing about their geometry and color, and especially the way they interact with sunlight. I have inflicted many on you in the past, I know, but they just call to me and even as I'm saying to the storehouse "but I already have ten thousand photos of you guys and I don't need anymore," click goes the shutter anyway.
