But am very easily distracted by the whole composition. I really, really like this photo. The blurred figure, the double canopy (the small roof and the umbrella). This is one of my all time favorites from you, Casey.
(Apart from that, and on a more mundane note: why the noren? to keep dust from entering, or a "ceremonial" thing - it could not be privacy. And, also, doesn't that lamp runs the risk of being toppled by a bike or something?)
