Our oldest son has been experimenting with welding geometric shapes, these are octahedron made from stainless steel (one is made with individual triangles and the other is folded, then welded). He has plans for a large sculpture.

We just got back from a couple of weeks in Japan (amazing trip!),  so I thought I would share a few pictures -

Tokyo from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, with Mt Fuji in the distance
Skytree Tower in Tokyo, along the Sumida River (near where we stayed for a week in Tokyo)
Great Buddha of Kamakura

Beautiful fall gardens in Tokyo -

Moat around the Imperial Palace, Tokyo
Himeji Castle
Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Dome
Hiroshima Peace Garden (chains of origami cranes) - one of the many reminders of the importance of peace.
Inari Shrine, Kyoto (near where we stayed for a week in Kyoto)
Walking up the mountain at the Inari Shrine
