In last week’s picture we had a nice example of ‘colour resonance’ and here we have another one, again in Kyoto. Was the first one at Kinkaku-ji, this time it’s in Ginkaku-ji.

Even more than last week I suspect the lady here of having dressed in this blouse on purpose, so well it matches the colours of the decorated wooden panels between which she’s standing. She receives the visitors of the pavilion at this spot and knows the beautiful entourage of her workplace only too well.

Being a maker of images, I may have developed a special sensitivity for this phenomenon of ‘colour resonance’, and therefore risk accusing the ladies wrongly of complicity. But somehow I can’t really believe their choices are unintentional. We must be grateful for their delicate attentions to us.
