At the Sunrise Diner...

... we're open late. You will notice the social distancing: Moderated comments. The old back-and-forth is not happening. You can see that as an opportunity if you are an optimist. And do consider doing your shopping — if you've got any — through the Althouse portal to Amazon.The photograph of the relentlessly Type #1 sunrise was done at 5:37.

The silence of suburban Tokyo bus stop seats

Tokyo is an extraordinary city with a lot of similarly extraordinary people, yet on the whole it’s the rather more regular, day-to-day sights and scenarios that appeal the most. A factor that has definitely made the last two months of locally restricted walks and bike rides more bearable. Among other things, there has been an old housing complex to document, a wonderfully bleak park and the terribly sad discovery of an abandoned little bar. On these almost daily excursions, I’ve also noticed the...

At first I thought this door was a storage entrance but it turned out to be the entrance to RER C, the train that goes through Paris and then to the outskirts of Paris.
