Photo of the Day: Punch Perm Daibutsu

imageThe punch perm—a hairstyle popular in days gone by and worn by only the coolest of cats. And the Daibutsu.

Okay, his isn’t a punch perm, but in the graphic novel series, Saint Young Men, by Hikaru Nakamura—a manga series about young Jesus and young Buddha rooming together in the modern world—his hairstyle is described as such.

This is a closeup of the Daibutsu’s head. I’ve never really looked up close before, but found all sorts of details that I–perhaps naively—wasn’t expecting (besides the punch perm. I knew he had that). Just take a look at those ears! My favourite part, though, is his expression. I found that I felt very relaxed and calm after gazing at the Daibutsu’s face for a while.

I was invited by Terri over at Perspectives On…Life, Work and Leisure to participate in the Five Days Challenge, which asks us to post five photos, one per day for five days, and to write a story to go with each photo. For each day that we post we are supposed to invite one person to participate.

Today I’m inviting Stacey from Can The Kids Speak Japanese? Stacey writes about life in Japan with kids and the family’s relocation from Australia to Japan. Stacey, if you would like to participate, post a photo every day for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. Your story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page, or a poem. Each day, please select one person to carry on the challenge. The challenge is not mandatory and can be refused. I hope you accept and have fun!
