Perfect is the enemy of good.
— Voltaire, philosopher and writer
Don’t let the imaginary ideal make you stop, hesitate or second-guess yourself, whether in life or love.
Good is the enemy of great.
— Jim Collins, business consultant
Don’t let the comfortable status quo prevent you from pursuing excellence, whether in life or love.
Japanese aesthetics, that is. Whenever I post pictures I get a good response, so here we go again — this is a sample of photos that I took in beautiful Japan:
Seeing red — Hozomon Gate, Asakusa
Lanterns galore — street food in Asakusa
Calm of night — Asakusa
Seeing double — Tokyo Skytree at night
Maid in Akihabara — colourful signs in electric town
Street art — in the side streets of Harajuku
Spidey senses — in the streets of Harajuku
Rilakkuma madness — Kiddy Land, Harajuku
Splashes of colour — along Meiji Dori
Warriors — outside a sumo stable in Ningyo-cho
Path of gold — ginkgo leaves blanket the footway at the University of Tokyo
Lights, camera, action — revellers at Womb
