A Few

I have a few photos to post. It’s been raining a lot here so I haven’t been out much. This photo is obviously not taken in France. They do have pumpkins here but not in piles like you see in the States. I love Autumn. A full moon rising on the night I went to see the Eiffel Tower lit up in pink. A rainbow sort of piercing a cloud after a rain storm and as the sun set.

How Vividly Colorized Photos Helped Introduce Japan to the World in the 19th Century

Since the mid-20th century heyday of Sony transistor radios, the world has associated Japan with high technology. But between the mid-17th and mid-19th century, the world could barely associate Japan with anything at all. The isolationist policy of sakoku, or "closed country," kept the Land of the Rising Sun virtually free of outside influence — especially Western religious and colonial influence — until, in 1853, the American Navy commodore Matthew Perry rolled up in his "Black Ships" a...
