Friendly Friday: Photo Walk

Come and take a Friendly Friday Photo Walk with Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere

My starting point for a walk. Overlooking Shinjuki’s Concrete jungle.

Snow and I co-host a Photo Challenge, Called Friendly Friday, alternately each Friday (Saturday for some time zones). Although I have linked the response to this week’s prompt of a photo walk, to an earlier walk I took through the Gyoen National Park in Shinjuku, Japan, this prompt from Snow was one I couldn’t resist joining in with again.

Hosts are allowed to join their own challenges, aren’t they?

Japanese know their horticulture and how to make it a work of art. The trees perfectly frame the pond and the manicured trees int eh distance. In a week or so, these trees would turn brilliant red. Oh how I would love have seen that.

A row of Japanese mountain Maple trees – more LOTR trees,

A fellow Aussie blogger liked my comparison of these trees to Lord of the Rings.

Here is some more, Chris!


No problems to sit here for a while and absorb the ethereal light.

More spam of my absolute favourite Sycamore, (or Plane trees – thanks Manja)!

Proof it is a real kind of Photo Walk
Friendly Friday
