Don't know if this is interest, but I thought to put up some photos of Japan, with a truck and other machinery bias. I live in Yamagata and like to photograph everyday things. Went out for a roam with the camera today, snapping cherry blossom. Came across this well-worn Acty with a load of mountain vegetables drying. In spring as the snow melts, lots of people follow the snow line up the mountains, collecting first growth shoots. Traditionally the first fresh vegetables after living on preserves all winter. This is the reason I was out, to snap the cherry blossom (sakura). This is our local train, the mini-shinkansen. It fits the standard loading gauge, so can get through the mountains to Yamagata, but still runs up and down the east coast main line at 300kph plus. Croquet (called gate-ball here) under the mountains. Still some snow about.
