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.
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!
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
