WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

More fall colors...
Filed in: Current Affairs, Japan, Photography

Dsc_0015

It wasn't blossom season in Inokashira Park - but the colors were just as beautiful. It began at the entrance to the park...

Dsc_0017

Many people come to the park on their bikes...

Dsc_0023

A deciduous 'evergreen'...

Dsc_0030

These cherries aren't in blossom - but they might as well be - it's about the same riot...

Dsc_0053

Even the ducks like to enjoy all the colors of the leaves...

Dsc_0055

You've perhaps seen some pictures of mine from the other side of this bridge...

Dsc_0056

The pathway fairly borders the east end of the park...

Dsc_0058

Sunlight on maples works anywhere ...

Dsc_0062

Here's that bridge spot - but it's not all green...

Dsc_0072

And the issuance from the pond toward Tokyo...

Dsc_0073

Another of those evergreens that lose their foliage in the fall....

Dsc_0075

An enormous Ginkgo in the late afternoon light...

Dsc_0092

Stark contrast in the late afternoon sun ...

Dsc_0093

As the light fades the colors become more vibrant...

Dsc_0096

This weeping tree seems to sag right down to the water...

Dsc_0136

The temple on the west side of the park - it's nearly dusk and the leaves of fall provide a very different cast than the springtime here as well ...

Dsc_0159

Those leaves are nearly glowing ...

Dsc_0160

This tree features a nearly violet underleaf...

Dsc_0161

A beautiful variety in their riot ...

Dsc_0171

The koi provides a very Japanese effect to the scene ...

Dsc_0174 

There's that weeping tree again - it's almost dark ...

Dsc_0191

Really pretty dark now - the lights across the water provide backlit illumination to the sparse tree in the foreground.

Dsc_0195

Blossoms in the park - in November - had to take this with the flash - it's dark - time to make my way back to the Kichijoji Tokyu Inn with my new memories ensconced in the camera...

The evergreens that lose their foliage are Larch trees. Great pictures!

They could also be Dawn Redwoods, but they're much rarer, and I don't know that they lose their foliage, it just turns autumn colors.
