In front of a lumber shop

In front of a lumber shop, Kyoto, Japan
This was taken in front of a shop selling lumbers for housing and used to be one of typical scenes in Japan. Wooden was very popular material for making houses and constructing buildings. Passing through such shops, the good scent of raw wooden pleased our noses. But today, wooden has replaced with steel and concrete. So such shops are becoming less in the street. I miss the scent!

I like the colorful bands on the bunches of wood. And the ladder is a nice contrast - wood waiting to be sold and wood being put to use. Nice photo!
