Nikko, Japan repeated...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 14 January 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

...I posted this earlier in B & W, but was asked if I might post it in its original colors.
With my colorful frame of the earlier version, the original watercolor colors just did not work.

This is my photo of a watercolor, where my husband's grandfather stayed around the year 1900.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS 1/60 second F/3.5 15 mm

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Of course! I think it is WORTH showing the watercolour with its right colours! I have this one in my file already! I loved when I first saw it and I love it now!!! Being an heirloom, make sure that it stays in the family! Bridget might love to take it on and keep it....

@Japanalia: I know I had sent this to you a few years back and I'm happy I reposted it. For your birthday 'card' the bright Japanese paper 'frame' just wouldn't work unless the image was converted to mono. ... Yes, I think Susan and then Bridget will keep this one.

Abena from Illinois, United States

I find that so interesting, it has a history ... gorgeous image, I prefer the b&w, but color also does look good in it's own right and way.

15 Jan 2013 3:32am

@Abena: Thank you, Abena ... glad you like the B&W, and I'm sure you could see why, with that colorful Japanese paper frame I used for my friend, I could not use the original colors. ;D
