The scupture reminded me of the kind of toy you see on someone’s desk but greatly enlarged. The giant chrome tubes, moving in concert, gave the sense of a school of fish suddenly performing an evasive manuver. Yet, in truth the whole of it was always rotating at a constant pace.

Caputred at the Hakone Open Air Museum in Hakone, Japan.

Crazy American Tourists with Rafukun

Crazy American Tourists with Rafukun

Originally uploaded by Bob Owen

Everything in Japan seems to have a mascot. Narita Airport had one that looked like an airplane. Tokoyo Tower had one that was a little disturbing.

This one is Rafukun, the little blue dog mascot for Fuji TV. He’s framed here by two crazy American tourists who were in Japan on their on thier honeymoon.

You can recognize crazy American tourists by the fact that they flash the “V” sign in every picture thier in.

Rafukun was posing outside the world headquarters for Fuji TV which is on the island of Odiaba in Tokyo Bay. Odiaba is the largest man made island in Tokyo Bay and it an amazing planned community that’s seen a few booms and busts. Now it’s mostly a live/work playground for the population of Tokyo. While there we also saw Venus Fort, the Sega Joypolis, and had what I think was the best sushi on the trip.

Individually the sculptures are facinating. Together, they create a dizzing and amazing texture with real sense of movement.

Usually when you find an Armadillo in Florida, it’s on the side of the highway and not in very good shape. Here at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, they must take great care of them. I’ve never seen one this tall before. And the coloration is amazing. It’s easy to see why the common tourist might mentally anthropomorphize this beautiful animals.

The warthog behind her is pretty amazing too. 🙂

I love the texture in this shot of the bead curtain that separates the space at Flick Hair Studio. I think it’d make a nice background.

The charming view outside Osteria Del Figo in the Edgewood shopping center. The Graffiti artist have given us something to ponder.

Any Italian speakers know what this means? 🙂

Oh, and even if graffiti isn’t your thing, up in the top left corner some enterprising soul has left us information about how to make $10,000 a month AND loose 2 -3 sizes in 10 minutes. Sounds win – win!

Flick is a great place to get a hair cut and more. It’s in the Edgewood shopping center near Little 5 Points in Atlanta.

Walt Disney World is rightfully famous for it’s topiary. The plant based stars on display play as much of a role in creating the magical atmosphere as the more animated charachters in the theme parks.

For most of our Backstage Magic tour, we were admonished to keep the lens cap on the camera. Thankfully, in this one spot, our tour guide gave us permission to set the shutters free.

What you see here is pluto growing the final touches to his costume before getting ready to go “on stage” at one of the theme parks. An Aladdin bound for Adventure Land in the Magic Kingdom and a butterfly bound for Epcot are getting similar treatment.
