Comments - Handsome view of Kanetsuki Hall Bell Tower in Okayama on a rainy day. A lone figure makes his way down the narrow street lined with shops at left, reflections of the buildings shimmering on the wet pavement as raindrops slant across the sky. A beautifully detailed, quiet image with fine bokashi shading. A lovely lifetime edition print.
