Japan: Culinary Adventure (23): Curry Restaurant

Savory Course (Curry Restaurant) - Japan  2014

Dessert (Curry Restaurant) - Japan  2014

Not what you might think of when you think of a "curry restaurant." Very subtle flavors, upscale all the way, located in the Shinjuku Station complex.

Pine Tree, Lake Tahoe - Sierra Nevada  2014

Taken during an early morning hike from our campsite to the lake. Very nice . . . no one else was there, with the exception of a few kayakers off in the distance.

Lake Tahoe #1

Lake Tahoe - Sierra Nevada  2014

It's been quite a while since I visited Lake Tahoe. I guess the most recent trip to the area was to Fallen Leaf Lake (adjacent to Lake Tahoe) in 2008.

Back then I was using an Olympus DSLR (E-510) and the famous 4/3 12-60mm lens. This trip I mainly used an Olympus E-PL5 with an Olympus "micro" four-thirds 12-50mm lens.

Campfire, Tent - Lake Tahoe  2014

Hali and I went camping in September at Sugar Pine Point State Park on the west side of Lake Tahoe. A more luxurious experience than my minimalist backpack camps.

Golden Gate Bridge #2

Golden Gate Bridge - Marin County  2014
The sun was just starting to break through the overcast. For some reason you can't walk to those buildings directly underneath the bridge, this is about the closest you can get.

Jubilee Jumps

Jubilee Jumps - Marin County  2014

. . . as seen by Mike a short distance from where he had set up his Farmers Market photo booth a few Sundays ago. This was early on, before the crowds.

Very little sales . . . people were finding it hard to concentrate, don't know why. Photo taken using the iPhone pano mode.

Dog Hiding - Alameda County  2014

Saw this after I parked my truck in Oakland for the Grand Lake Farmers Market. You have to drive to the booth location, unload all your stuff, then drive somewhere else to park.
