Kyoto: The Ancestors Are Watching (Photo, 52 Make-up Week 18) May 23, 2017

Catching up with posting the pieces from the 52 Make-Up Challenge. This entry and the next are from my recent trip to Japan; for more on the background of this photo, taken in a cemetery in eastern Kyoto near sunset, see this post. (Click for a larger version.)

I took a bit of a wrong turn while trying to get to a famous temple. And to see this view, I had to turn around and look behind me. So I suppose the lesson is, be willing to get a little lost sometimes, and take your eyes off the road ahead to look behind.
