Water 2 / 3: Aqueduct - The Water Bearer

Posted by Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 2 May 2007 in Architecture and Portfolio.

This is the second of a three-day international project organized by Damon, on the theme of water.

This is the famous aqueduct behind Nanzenji Temple, Kyoto. It was pretty spooky being there alone at midnight. There wasn't a soul around and it was totally silent, as if the whole place was holding it's breath. The atmosphere is heavy with the weight of history. Not even the tree branches were moving, as you can see from this 10 second exposure.
So, Damon? I'll be sending you my laundry bill!
