Kyoto Collage, Colors & Forms – 2 京都之色彩与造形 – 2

This is fun!  I had a good time putting this together. A few of the photos are actually from Nara or Takayama. To me, they are also part of  Kyoto. Please click on the photo to get an enlarged version which I believe is better.

這個拼貼蛮好玩的, 很多張看起來跟单独時不一樣, 非常有意思。
