Snap and Savor: Day 47

The Snap

Of course there is room for a second car here.

The Savor

Sites that once shocked us, now blend into the environment around us, going unnoticed as unusual or unique. So today, as we walked through the back streets of Tokyo, we made an effort to take note.

We remember the age old shrine nestled into the heart of a modern neighborhood.

We see the decibel reader on the wall of a construction zone, always considerate of their neighbors.

We remember the bicycle and mass transportation culture as we pass hundreds of people living their daily routines and commutes.

And then we see the cars, stacked one on another. We think nothing of it at first and then realize, hey, this is not normal. Snap.

To remember the creativity that can take place when the limits seem set.

To remember that many people can coexist in a much smaller space than I previously thought feasible.

A reminder that not all parking spots are created equal.
