In Tokyo, Ginza is an upscale shopping district. In DC, Ginza is a lovely boutique in Dupont Circle with all things Japanese. This image is my interpretation of their beautiful merchant tansu.

Wabi Sabi II
This kimono was created on the train from DC to NYC. There was great freedom in knowing from the start that the result would be imperfect.
Apps: Filterstorm, Scratchcam, Artista Oil, Snapseed, WordFoto, Superimpose
This kimono isn't perfect, but I just like the wabi-sabi nature of it.
Apps: Filterstorm, Superimpose, Touch Retouch, Snapseed, Artista Oil, Scratchcam
It was great fun to assemble this kimono from a Hipstamatic image of the steps leading to the garden at Croydon Hall in Somerset.

Barn Kimono III
This bold kimono came from two images of the hay barn captured in ProCamera and merged in Superimpose - my new favorite app!
Apps: ProCamera, Superimpose, Pic Grunger, Filterstorm, Artista Oil
Barn Kimono II
Up close, the side of the barn revealed a native calligraphy suited more to a Japanese fabric than a structure for housing hay bales.
