In an attempt to add more structure to this blog, the only sensible thing is to add in more random factor, so here’s to the first Random Pics Friday. Theme = tortoises.
In Japan and China, for example, Genbu/Xuanwu, the Black Tortoise of the North is basically on the same level as the Vermilion Phoenix of the South (Suzaku/Zhuque), Azure Dragon of the East (Seiryuu/Qinglong) and the White Tiger of the West (Byakko/Baihu).
So… Random pics.
