Taken in Saitama, Japan very near my home. A symbol of winter, here, this beautiful white bird very obligingly moved into a dark part of the stream. I managed to take two shots before it flew away.

    wow… so pure… i’ve never been to saitama, but was a part of a group art exhibit last summer held at the museum of modern art, saitama…. heard it is a beautiful place… : )

  • Thanks Mimi. I live one station away from the museum of modern art. If you ever exhibit there again, let me know. I’d love to see some of your paintings for real.
