Bonnie, our friend who is a Hawaii transplant thriving in New York City and writes about her kayaking and sailing adventures on the blog "frogma" tagged me for this.
In general "I don't do tags". However, I will make an exception in this case, since it is such an easy one. The instructions were: "go into your photo archive, pick the 4th folder in the archive, select the 4th picture in the folder, and write about it. A person then needs to tag 4 other people to do the same". The only hard part is choosing people to tag as I have turned down so many others.
I was pleasantly surprised that the photo turned out to be one I like very much.
I took this picture of the Haiden (worship hall) at Kashima Jingu shrine (the major Shinto Shrine in our area) in late 2005. This picture was later (as discussed in my post "Pandabonium Goes Poetic" June 20, 1006) chosen by San Fransisco poet Joanne Olivieri to be the cover for Ya'Sou! Ezine online poetry magazine.
I tag Moody Minstrel, Snabulus, NZM, and Olivia (who can't seem to settle on a blog name as she keeps moving around!).
