Sannomiya - 三宮 Movie sets

Some scenes near Sannomiya in Kobe were as though they were movie sets.

Wonderfully organic looking air conditioning conduits + cross processing filter:
Blade Runner or perhaps Aliens

Dust and desaturation: a still from an animated film

Transit of Venus

I had originally thought was not successful in recording this event but thanks to a friend complaining that he did not get anything in his shots, I took another look at mine.  One of the shots was successful, though using a 50mm lens it was rather small, Venus being about two pixels or so on the sensor.
 Super cropped but still visible.


Sayama Shrine in Tondabayashi.  
In addition to the red and white ropes on the feet of the a pair of guardian statues, all of the guardian statues and stone lanterns had had coins placed upon them.
