Mike's Ryukyu Gallery: Shuri Castle Pond Again and Again and Again (Photo)

This is a scene we've been working on for months, now. There is a photo I'm trying to duplicate for the Then and Now Series. 

A Flickr Friend named, Okinawa Soba, gave me a black and white photo of this scene. My goal, is to recreate the photographic shot, as it was originally made. The photo, from his collection, was taken sometime, before World War II.

Shuri-jo Castle was leveled by bombs, during that war. The reconstruction of castles, on this island was accomplished by looking at old photos and sketches. It amazes me, how much the re-constructed buildings, look like the originals.

So, I try to do the best I can at duplicating the old photos.
