Tokyo Eyes, To-Kyo + Kyo-To

I have never been to Kyoto, but would love to someday. All these are from Tokyo many years ago.

One word can just ruin a whole piece.

The old and the new and the bird that saunters by not concerned or even aware of your life, gaze, mind.

Feed the cats, toppins a bag. Toppins, toppins, toppins a bag.

My taxi is a boat, my home is an office.

The "Perp Fork" is a tool used to keep the perpetrator against a wall at a distance from the police. I saw it in action on this guy...

Aoi was her name, so the drawing is called Aoi too.

I forgot the other ones name, lets call her Consuelo.

Then the drawings got cut out and given away, then later trashed no doubt.

So much electricity, Tokyo buzzes with it.

So much beauty. Strange spaces filled with unique nature, things, human markings.

I have never been to Japan.
Despite the dreary feeling I get in my stomach with the above pics I still want to go someday.

You're so lucky, Ed. I've been wanting to go to Japan forever now. I got a friend out there who shreds!
