Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan
This stunning bamboo forest is located in the Arashiyama district on the west outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. It is one of the most amazing natural sites in the country. An interesting fact about Sagano Bamboo Forest is the sound that the wind makes while it blows through the bamboo. Amazingly enough, this sound has been voted on as one of the “one hundred must-be-preserved sounds of Japan” by the Japanese government. Another interesting fact – the railing on the sides of the road is composed out of old, dry and fallen parts of bamboo.
My idea of a perfect Saturday afternoon?

Stop what you’re doing and look at this. Banded, backlit and beautiful, this verdant view of Saturn — just released by CICLOPS — is one of the most remarkable images of the planet ever captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. And trust us, that’s…
Amazing on so many levels.
It’s time for Round 2. I’ve eliminated the two options that were never actually in the running (sorry, hipsters).
X, Y, or Z?
(Yes: X is a dark blue frame, Y is a greenish tortoise shell, Z is all green.)
It’s hard to look like an angry drummer while wearing an argyle sweater and a warm scarf.
EDIT: …and slippers.

I stopped in to say hello to my mom on my way home from work today. She gave me a bag full of old photos of me. One of them was an 11x17 copy of the greatest photo ever taken in the history of photography, ever.
That pretty much made my day.
The beach at Cornado was sunless and cold at sunset this evening.

I think I’ve finally found myself a new winter jacket. The sticker shock is slowly wearing off as I remind myself that it’s been several years since I last bought one and this new one should last me a good long while.
Now I can’t decide which color I like best. I can get the black or grey in-store locally, but the green would have to be ordered online.
