What I would not give to have a studio like the one above, the corner apartment. It would serve me well and would allow me to spend the next few years painting a country I love like my own. I love America, I love to write and I love Japan.

MONSTERS IN MOVIE HISTORY
This 1954 movie produced by genius cinematic artists in Japan brought us Godzilla in 1954. Most older Americans, or anyone in the world in the elderly category has surely seen this thriller. When it premiered, it was a spell-binding thriller and scarred the hell out of most of us at first glance. Now, however, the monster movies are darker, and mostly inspired by a kind of evil that is really researched.
Like goodness, evil is also a subject that reaches out and attracts those who are seeking something missing in their lives. This, of course, is only a personal opinion. However, like the video games so popular today seem to have a kind of attraction that is hard for most adults to comprehend. RLH

wired - tokyo
A plethora of power lines dangle over a congested Tokyo thoroughfare.
What a puzzle! It is like a web woven by the shops to get energy for electric debit cards. I can imagine there is a noise factor too.
One very excellent photograph. I get a real buzz out of photos like this one.

HOW SWEET IT WAS, PLEIN AIRE PAINTING
Saturdays were days when we traveled around Yokohama and concentrated on sketching and painting on site. We usually attracted an audience. This did not bother us. She spoke Japanese and I spoke English, thus we could answer most all questions.
It was one of the memories I cherish. I still have this original. It was done with tempra and tube watercolors. I believe the first vessel along the dock is the Hikawa Maru, now a museum. It has been moved several times in the last 50 years. We last saw this ship and area in December of 1963 when my tour of duty ended.
The park along this part of the waterfront is called Yamashita Park. It was established in 1931 and has undergone numerous transformations since the 1960s. Sometime, I hope to return for a last look at this area that holds so many youthful memories. By editor, Robert L. Huffstutter
