Kintaikyo (Changing Direction)

I set a goal to write a blog post every week on the recommendation of Wait But Why’s article on not procrastinating, which I think contains some good advice; however, writing and choosing pictures to upload takes a lot of time, and I have other priorities right now, so I don’t plan on posting on a weekly basis anymore. Thank you everyone for following my blog and being interested in my pictures and what I had to say. It was so encouraging to hear from family and friends who visited my blog and liked what they saw!

For today, here are some pictures I took recently at the Kintai Bridge. I went there with friends from church, and we took pictures of the clear, post-rain scenery while we waited for the moon to rise up, because it was supposed to be really large and visible that night.

The water was so blue!

Sometimes I feel like it’s boring taking pictures of the Kintai because everyone else is just there taking the same pictures, but I’m glad I copied my friend and took this, because I don’t think I realized how cool the water looked.

We almost missed seeing the moon rise because we were so focused on the sunset lighting up the clouds across the river.
