伏見稲荷大社、京都、日本
Fushimi-inari Shrine, Kyoto, Japan.

There were quite a few people walking past when I took this (it was a Sunday), but because of the 30 second exposure you can't tell. If you look very closely you may spot a couple of ghosts in the background.

I realise this place has been photographed to death, but I couldn't resist! Every time friends visit me I take them here, so I must be into double figures by now. Still not bored of it though.

That is a really great photo. Even though it has been photographed many times, this picture really stands out!

Hey Tim! I just did the walk today. Wonderful place! It started getting cold so we decided not to do it in the evening. Tomorrow we head to Gion and hope we can snap a shot of a Geisha...but we'll see.

This place has been photographed to death, but it is just so much fun to shoot! I'm happy to see you could get a nice shot. When I went it was cloudy and all my pictures came out blurry. :(

Sure is!

The tripod helped me there, otherwise this would have been very blurry.

The ghost?

People walking past. Because it' a long exposure (30 seconds) they turn into ghosts.
