Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

Each week Cee challenges bloggers to share black and white photos based on a theme. Last week the theme was bathrooms and outhouses and I thought I didn’t have anything. Then I realized how often I do photograph bathrooms when I travel.

Japan’s #1 Hostess

A hostess in Japan is a modern equivalent of a geisha without the training in dance and music.

I’m surprised they can earn $46,000 USD a month

    on average.

I wonder how many years hostesses average in this career.

I definitely think they cherry-picked the customer, who was so young, rich and good looking. Why doesn’t he have a girlfriend? Perhaps he does.

Hermit Rehab

Asian Boss fascinates again with a look inside a Japanese rehab center for hermits, not religious hermits, but people with social anxiety that manifests as withdrawal. (Religious orders don’t just let anyone become a hermit; you must show emotional maturity and psychological health.)

With so much social media addiction, I wonder how long before we need these in the West.

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.
