"Að stríða við sjálfan sig er erfiðast af öllu; að sigra sjálfan sig er sá fegursti sigur."
To fight oneself is the hardest battle of all.  To accept yourself totally as you are is the sweetest victory.

"..vagueness has been good for me. The word means
two different things in Tokyo and Osaka, you know.
In Tokyo it means stupidity, but in Osaka they talk
about vagueness in a painting and in a game of Go."

The metropolis of Osaka is a photographers dream. Contemplating this unusually  human-free spectacle in the heart of the city I was minded of the Ansel Adams quote:

'There are always two people in every photograph:
the photographer and the viewer.'
