Leaving the shrine and a tree

 From the entrance to the shrine grounds, the torii and the building are barely visible. Actually, the grounds are very quiet and peaceful. If I lived nearer, I would come here often.
A couple of months ago I showed this same tree but before the leaves had come out. Because the branches are so severely trimmed back, these trees take on an almost surrealistic shape. By the way, the circular red sign on the right is a notification that there is a fire hydrant here. In Japan most of the fire hydrants are level with the sidewalk so they are hard to see. Thus there are large signs so that the fire department can find them easily.
