Another beauty. Well done.

Being a Japanophile, I was particularly attracted to this picture. Tea ceremonies are exquisite but my old American knees and hips won't fold under me in the proper way (not even close) so I've always felt like I'm offending them.

This is a really beautiful photo. Love the subtle color and reverence. Itadakimasu.
