Always very popular throughout its history – a view of the crowds in the stands of a major horse race in the 1940s.


Keeping a close watch on her horse – 1950s (maybe).

Happy SUNday! – Dolls from Yokohama and more.

When Carol and I lived in Yokohama in the late 1970s, a wonderful local artist made these dolls for us. We’ve kept them in a glass display cabinet all of these years and they remind us of how much we enjoyed our time there. Such artistry! Dolls photographed with my Samsung Galaxy S4 camera.

Morning glory on the garden shed – Yokohama 1978. The door was salvaged from the local Navy Lodge from their vast trove of bits and pieces in the maintenance office. This image is scanned from a picture I took with my Kodak EK4 instant camera on Kodak film. Kodaks brief foray into instant photography.

Unrelated to the dolls, here’s the garden shed that I built for Carol. The Housing Office on the Navy base that we lived on in the Naka ward in Yokohama had free wood that you could use for projects such as this and the fence you see to its right. The lumber was free and so was the paint – only one color was available so everything was painted the same color in the neighborhood!


Stacked sky high!

While on a walkabout on the backstreets in our neighborhood we discovered this “wall” of crates just outside of a bar. The image was taken with my Canon F-1 on Kodachrome film – 1978.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day! – Chris
