103 - casual dress day
102 - While the burgers in Japan were great, I couldn’t help but miss what California had to offer. And after a discussion regarding Fast Food joints and secret menus (In and Out Secret Menu and a list of other secret menu items from other restaurants), I decided to grab a double-double animal style with chopped peppers.
101 - They’re building this thing pretty quickly. It was just barely above the green tarp before we went on vacation!
Motivation to find things to photograph took a major hit since coming back from Japan, though. Bleh.
097 - Peep this huge parking space for an electronics store. This random title generator is hilarious, by the way.
096 - At about 1:30 in the afternoon, the arcade at Passca was packed with players watching and playing this gundam arcade game. There was another bank of game cabinets on the opposite side of these.
094 - Windy and rainy for a good portion of the day, kept us indoors today. But Old Snake reassured us that he had no hand in the bad weather.
PS - Lumix LX5 is a badass little camera
093 - Following an awesome sushi lunch, we headed to a nearby convenience store. On the way there was this short rack of brightly colored bikes. Colorful coordination.
092 - Wife’s friends were kind enough to take us to Osaka Castle. It was the first time we took a car ride during our trip. ‘Really made miss being able to drive.
“The main tower of Osaka Castle is situated on a plot of land roughly one kilometer square. It is built on two raised platforms of landfill supported by sheer walls of cut rock, using a technique called Burdock piling, each overlooking a moat. The central castle building is five stories on the outside and eight stories on the inside, and built atop a tall stone foundation to protect its occupants from sword-bearing attackers.
The Castle grounds, which cover approximately 60,000 square meters (15 acres) contain thirteen structures which have been designated as Important Cultural Assets by the Japanese government…”
090 - Wife was able to find a couple of arcades that had a game I like to play. I spent a couple hours playing Street Fighter while my family shopped at a nearby mall. It was nice to play in an arcade setting again after so many years.
This is a photo of another player, straight ahead of me. Not sure what he was playing, though. I hope I can get some time playing again before we have to leave.
