Catch the Rainbow

Used to listen to Deep Purple quite a bit while growing up...
Their guitarist left and formed his own group, Rainbow... thus the above title song...

Days in Japan lately are hot as hell...
While gardening on weekends, my sweat literally 'rains' from within...
The real rains, meanwhile, are few and far in between...



So, was quite lucky to get caught in a drizzle while cycling home one evening...
And woah... stopped right on my tracks upon catching this big R... two, actually, if you care to observe...
Rainbows are rarely seen at where I live...



This particular rainbow seemed to be just about two kilometers or so from where I stood...
See how it shone 'in front' of those table-top hills?



The setting sun cast a golden glow on the metalics of the bridge...
At the bat of the eye, I caught this cyclist breezing by...



Closer to home, was beckoned by this pretty sight...
The island you see was previously used as a rehabilitation center for lepers until recently...


Meanwhile, yours truly shall be heading back to Malaysia for a short holiday...
Shall be cruising the oceans in East Malaysia before zooming back to my village...
Shall also drop by KL briefly before 'hitching' a ride back to Japan in early September...
