    Roadside Flower

    There is beauty all around us on Okinawa. Sometimes, we must seek it out, while other times we pass right by it without realizing it as we're wrapped up in other aspects of our lives. On our way back to the car after a waterfall shot in Tomigusuku, I noticed the roadway lined with these...
