Traffic at the Foot of Yasaka-no-to Pagoda by Nathan Ceulemans
Via Flickr:
While most pagodas come complete with temples, Yasaka-no-to Pagoda stands mostly alone, the buildings of the temple of which it once belonged (Hokan-ji Temple) having been destroyed by fires, earthquakes and wars over the years. [insidekyoto.com] I’m revisiting some old shots from Japan this week, with a few new post-processing techniques I picked up since. Hope you like it!

Dusk on Mount Fuji by NOAC_

Taken from the Arakura Sengen Shrine, at the Chureito Pagoda. I was ecstatic to be at this place, but the mosquitoes ate me alive. See my other photos from Japan in this album! Find me on: 500pxInstagramrel=“nofollow”>Instagram

A few more Bronze Age things and then some Egyptian art! The little pair of hands is so adorable <3 And who wouldn’t love the little Bastets?

That blue glass jar is cool, but the real reason I took a photo of it is because those are ashes and bits of burnt bones in there. Probably the most badass thing I saw that day.

…I also took a picture of one of the famous Nefertiti busts and got yelled at because the only “no photography” sign was all the way across the room and facing the opposite direction. Womp womp.
