Cats - Sora and Nefer

(no subject)

Just noted that I could Google using Google Maps for the moss garden temple we visited near the fox shrine. :D

This is large (roughly 250K), and composites two Google screens together. I'm not sure exactly where the shrine is on it, but I can at least say there's no way the fox statues are guarding against evil from the northeast, so that little bit of folklore is thrown out as regard this.

Now, using the Hybrid function, which overlays a satellite map with the names of places, we get another large file:

I've pointed out what I think may be the wooden shelter's roof. It's across the street from what I think is the doll museum.
Cats - Sora and Nefer

Yaaay!

A $20 SD card reader and I was able to get the photos from the two SD cards I used in Japan. There are still a lot of individual pictures that got corrupted, but at least the ones that were OK to start with didn't get messed up. Yay.

Now to go work on the photos. Expect them to be posted at some point in the near future.

(movingfinger, I tried the PhotoRescue, but it turns out that the cards themselves were unaffected, and the problem lies in my camera, so the corrupted pictures never saved correctly in the first place, so there's nothing to rescue. Ah well.)
