The joy and pleasure of street photography is in finding little scenes that are usually overlooked by passersby. This urban micro-setting captured my attention while wondering the streets of Tokyo, Japan in May. The cluster of flower pots and the cute, diminutive statue of a dog, arranged on one side of the concrete dividing wall evoked in me a curiosity about the person who created it. Did he or she have a cherished pet, now passed away, for which the statue is a tribute? Or are the flowers simply a way to brighten the entry to a rather dull, urban dwelling?
