Kyoto Randomness

Just call me a 京都バカKyoto-baka, or a fool for Kyoto, I just can’t stop finding beauty everywhere in this traditional city of an interesting mix of old and new. In this post I want to share just a few shots I’ve taken over the years (and especially recently) of scenes that inspired me.☺
