This photograph is taken in the cemetery in the back hand of Gokoku-ji in Bunkyo-ku. This Buddhist temple was established by the fifth shogun Tokugawa, Tsunayoshi, who dedicated it to his mother. There are many treasures, such as an important cultural property, etc. besides which collected the essences of Genroku culture of the Edo period paintings and calligraphic works and fixtures in Hondo(main building). It is a temple which tells the image of Edo. I took a walk the cemetery in a back hand, after inspecting Hondo. There is located many celebrities' grave as focusing on politicians in this temple. When I was walking along the narrow alley in a cemetery, the white cat was sleeping pleasantly on the gravestone. When approached, the cat waked up and was gazing toward me as if it noticed me.

Since I like cats I enjoy watching them in almost any situation. This one looks very comfortable on the flat stone that has probably been warmed by the sunshine. The trees frame the central part very nicely and the Japanese characters on the large stone increases the attraction of the composition. I also like the workshop very much. It is good enough to have been a regular upload.

A very thoughtful capture and meaningful sight to you, tightly croppedl. The soft colors, textures, the setting and importantly the script pn the stone that you have included is good referece point. It centrally fitd the view making it very prominence and the white kitty provides effective contrast while the shot conveys the atmosphere surounded by tranquility just what a graveyard -religious site should look like, a place of peace, serenity and rest. Well done,Congrats.
