Are You Superstitious?

This is a continuation of my last post of my walk to my friend Toshi Nagai's photo shop. I took a bunch of photos of the different cats I came across but there were so many of them, I chose just a few to share in this post.

For some strange reason, these photos reminded me of the fairy tale of the Pied Piper. Although in the tale of the Pied Piper, the animals he enchanted to follow him were mice, there were so many cats out today and it kind of reminded me of that.

In the bright sunlight of this day, this cat looked a like it had a bit of brown in the color of its fur. When it was in the shadows, it looked completely black.

Heathcliff the Cat

This fella reminded me of the comic strip cat Heathcliff. He didn't seem too care much about me as he strolled along.

A Princess Out on a Stroll

This was a beautiful cat. I didn't actually check to see if it was a him or a her, but it just looked like a girl cat.

Taking a Rest

All of the pigeons I've seen in Amami are pigeons that are raised and cared for. There were three other pigeons in this park and they all had collars on their legs. You can't see the collar on this one, as it has its collared leg is raised.

Most places here in Amami have nets and cages to put your trash in for the trash collectors to pick up, but some places like this still don't have such things. The crows congregate and tear open the trash bags scattering trash across the street which leads to awful messes. This isn't a problem just here in Amami, but all of Japan.

So those were just a few more of the photos I took on my way to my friend's photo shop. There's more to come.
