Torii With Lit Trees
This is the entrance to the Japanese Gardens (which aren't lit up).

Helen And Mark Breaking In
The Torii were close enough together that you often couldn't get between the. This was a rare chance to put two heads in the scene.

Sun Breaking Into Tunnel
I like the little lantern to ensure there is enough light.

The Torii are purchased by visitors and the messages are written (for a fee).

Stone Lantern With Snow On Top
I call this a "Chicken Cordon Bleu" shot - take something cool and put in in the foreground (but not in the center) and then add something else cool and use it to fill the background. If you don't like the chicken, maybe you will like the ham.

Gate Breaking Down
Torri rarely fall to this level of disrepair. I really like the moss growing on top of the posts. The stones on top of the cross bar is a common theme in Japan - often you get a reward (luck, a child etc) if you can throw a rock and have it land on the cross bar. Often there are additional requirements - off hand, stand behind the line, etc.

Sponsors Visible
Each Torii is sponsored. The Sponsors is written on one side of the Torri so the Torii are clean going in and the credits run on the way out.

Trees Around Tunnel
I like how the sun fights it way into the forest.

Sakura With Torii
Classic "it's out of focus (and cropped), but you still recognize it. I shot this with a long lens and after I shot it, I noticed other photographers standing in my place to take the same shot.

Torii Detail
Carving this would have been some pretty good work.

Buried Torii
The concrete pillars and long since broken plastic chains really detracted from this sight. It doesn't help that it's sandwiched between a school and some other building and really is blocking a useful path.

Shrine And Tree In Pool
Many people, when entering the pool for the first time, went to the shrine, prayed and then clapped.

Andrea Throwing Stones
This is Un-dameshi-no-Torii. You can see a hole in the center - if you throw three stones through the hole while making a wish, the wish comes true. Andrea tried lots - it's had to get just one through.

Floating Torii From Side
We didn't have the nice light to really make the torii stand out, but this is an angle I hadn't seen before so I guess I can call it mine.
