Ok, I'm back. Problem is, the weather's turned rainy here in Kagoshima, and there haven't been as many photo ops recently. Plus, my camera got dropped and I'm still waiting to get an estimate on how much the repair will be. Additionally, I'm running low on my backlogged articles and with the New Year holiday (typically the first 3-4 days of January), there's less going on outside to write about. So, being back doesn't necessarily mean I'll have that much to work with for writing new blog entries.
Sometimes, I just find the boxes at the back of buildings rather artistic.
