Flower Petals on a Garbage Heap

At Kurodani in Kyoto

(Also known as Konkai-Komyoji, this temple was founded by Honen and is a Pure Land (Jōdō) temple. My recent trip to Kyoto was the first time I went here, and I only noticed it because it was near where I was staying. Coincidentally, I already had plans to see an exhibit about Honen at the Kyoto National Museum later that same day.)

Faded Sakura

Because in most pictures the cherry blossoms are always in full bloom. . .
