A: Do you know?

A shisa is a asian lion/dog commonly found throughout much if Far East Asia but perhaps most abundant on Okinawa, Japan. Virtually every house has a pair of these characters guarding the entrance to the home. These two practically blend into the rock on which they are set. The clear blue sky and the brush offer a nice contrast in color.

    I personaly like the contrast of the photo, though, you may have wanted to wait alittle longer so the shadows wouldn't have covered the shisas. But over all, good job.
