UNESCO Katsuren-jo Okinawa, Japan: Travel Photo Thursday
It was a catchy title and the judges liked it when I entered it in a contest but, I was only foolin'. Heaven ain't up there. I checked it out for ya. It's a good climb, up all the stairs, and you get a great view of the surrounding area on a clear day. Maybe, even meet some pretty girls up there. But, there's no ice cream or even a place to buy coffee. That's how I know it ain't heaven.
This will be my weekly contribution to Budget Travelers Sandbox TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY
If you're really interested in visiting the Five UNESCO Castles on Okinawa CHECK HERE for the details and you can get my directions, advice on what to wear, costs and even a link to the Official Government Website, just in case ya think I'm foolin' around, again !
The Quarter Million Views must have happened while I was asleep last night and the crazy meter just keeps on going. I'm still waiting to see if anyone snapped a screenshot. I hope someone did, because I really appreciate people visiting my blog, looking at my photos and maybe, even reading the nonsense I ramble on about. Thank you all !

Heaven or not, still a pretty shot Mike. Thanks for post at Travel Photo Thursday.
Sorry I missed you making it to a quarter million. Congrats!
Thank you for getting me involved in Travel Photo Thursday. I've made some great friends there.
OMG! Have I missed you? Yes I do! Your photos are a work of an excellent photographer that always give an awe... It's always awe-inspiring! Love it! Thank you for sharing...:)
Great Post, Great Photo, Great Blog, congrats on your first quarter million viewers!
Thank you. Shadows and light, shadows and light, shadows and light that's what it's all about.
Just have to catch them at the right place at the right time of day!
I mean Doc, thanks. It's getting to be the time of year to go out and shoot the castles, all over again. You ready?
Great photo, Mike! The colors are so vivid :)
This looks like such an interesting place. The color of the sky is absolutely gorgeous.
I'm really disappointed that I missed the quarter million screen shot. I had "SnagIt" ready to go!
They really knew how to build entranceways to castles in those days- obliquely so as to shower down rocks and arrows on to attackers, and the odd vat of boiling oil...
Like this pic.
What was it Belinda Carlyle sang? Heaven is a place on earth, guess I'll just have to keep looking.
Thank you. I thought you'd be one of the screenshooters, for sure.
Hope ya ain't holdin' out waiting for me to shoot better !
Well, keep your Snagit thing handy and we'll see what else I can come up with for you !
Thanks for being a regular here, too.
Yeah, those were the good old days!
Ya got me but, I'll keep on lookin' anyway!
