THIS IS ONE VERY PRECIOUS PHOTOGRAPH. I can almost feel the joy that was in this youngsters heart and mind when he was scaring the photographer. Who is this little tiger? None other than Koji Kanemoto, my Flickr friend 54 years ago in Tokyo. Who would have guessed that our paths would have crossed at some later time in life?

This is photo that touches the heart. I find it a darling photo of children. Taken in 1957 at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. Thanks to my friend Mustand Koji. Check out his Flickr Photostream.
When I was in Japan during the early 60s, children in these cute hats were everywhere, smiling, laughing and in love with the sights they were seeing. They were children on school outings and admired by all.

The toddler is my Flickr friend, Mustang Koji, Koji Kanemoto. Take a few minutes and enjoy his vintage photo. Mustang is a car enthusiast and has some great shots of custom shows, people, places and family. He has shared some of his photos on his Flickr photostream that are heartwarming, historical and photos that will cause one to stop and think about our wonderful relationship with Japan during the past 65 years.
