Face to Face

Love this shot of an old man looking at the suit of Samurai armour in the old Nomura Samurai house in Kanazawa`s historical Nagamachi district.

Kind of sums-up Kanazawa  don`t you think? This really is the place where you can get face to face with Japan`s Samurai history.

Good day today, got the shot I wanted. The old man was happy to pose by the way, somedays you can just wait much, MUCH too long for people to get in the right place by themselves.

It is nearly 2am got to go to sleep.
