I’ve found the story of the abdication of Japan’s Emperor Akihito. He’s the first emperor to leave office. Akihito is 86 and decided to abdicate due to his age and health. Many thought he should stay in this role till his death as is the custom. This weekend on NHK, the Japanese PBS channel, they offered several documentaries on the Emperor Emeritus’ long reign.
In Japan the year is determined by the current Emperor so this year will be Reiwa 1. Emperor Akihito’s era was Heisei and till April 30 the year was Heisei 30.
Odd poses? Let’s see what I can dig up with that.
It looks like Billy Sunday, the professional baseball player turned preacher, is doing yoga in a suit in his home.
Of course, a dancer like Ruth St. Denis would strike some dramatic poses like this one for her Burmese dance.
I wonder whom he’s calling? Did they just have phones on poles like this scattered across the region?
My query for “pose” yielded this. Everyone’s so cooperative looking straight into the camera. I’m struck by the kids’ shoes. No velcro there. Also, the boy’s outfit sure shows the era.

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.
This week I’m sharing photos of Suzhou, China, which has many small canals in it’s Old Town.
