Photographer's Note

I have been wondering all along which kind of image I might post as the first image in 2012. I had considered another image last year, but I would like to present to you an image that is very Japanese instead. If you remember the two images of “En-Musubi I and II” from my previous presentations almost at the end of the year 2011, one can easily identify the lantern in bamboo called Andonn in the presented photos. The world economy is in very serious recession, and the Euro is experiencing difficulties. Not that I think it would make any difference, however, I would like to present this image as a symbolic guide to navigate through this difficult moment. This close up image of an Andonn (a bamboo lantern) will be hopefully helpful in a most symbolic way to guide our way through this difficult moment and to go beyond.

A very Happy New Year 2012 to every member and non-member of TE once again, with my utmost and sincere wishes, I present to you a Guiding Light.
