The flamingly beautiful autumn leaves at Kiyomizudera.

Osaka breaking news: A mysterious sighting of a humongous “Spider-crab” making its way up the building…

    Those pictures of the trees are just amazing. What color you got there. I remember seeing that picture of that giant crab on a travel-food show I watch here. I have never had crab before I don’t think. Very nice photos.
