Flickr is awesome!! So many fantastic photographers from all over the world sharing their work for us to admire! 10 years ago you couldn’t do this – you’d have to buy photobooks for $30-$50. albertlaw took this one of Nagasaki, Japan. Hard to believe this place was hit by an atomic bomb 67 years ago…

Flickr has some beauuuuutiful photos. This one of bamboos from Kyoto, Japan, by albertlaw, reminds me of the movie House of Flying Daggers (which is an amazing martial arts flick, by the way – see the trailer further below). Who else has seen this movie?
