July 25, 2007: Rice paddy drawings



Zippyt finds this at a blog called pink tentacle. So you know what HE surfs for.

Quote:
Each year, farmers in the town of Inakadate in Aomori prefecture create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed tsugaru-roman variety. This year's creation -- a pair of grassy reproductions of famous woodblock prints from Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji -- has begun to appear. It will be visible until the rice is harvested in September.


We'll have no claims of Photoshopping here, this stuff is real. The second and third photos here are the same location, but in previous years.

If I didn't know any better, I'd think I'd been at the rice wine - that's amazing!



Uisge Beatha  Wednesday Jul 25 12:19 PM

Then again, although very cool it's a lot tougher to view than Diamond Vision.



Anada  Wednesday Jul 25 12:38 PM

what amazes me most about this, is that the final result of this effort cannot be seen from the ground, a high viewpoint is needed, isn't it?



Shawnee123  Wednesday Jul 25 12:40 PM

Wow! The contrast is amazing. Neat stuff.

That's called a "vanity google". He just checking out how popular he is "out there".

Hey, couldn't you have waited until I finished my water? Now I have to explain to the boss why I sprayed him while laughing hysterically!

Reminds me of the work of the Midwest's own Stan Herd, although with typically Eastern obsessive attention to detail as opposed to Stan's plow it up methodology.

Tons cooler than crop circles. Them Japs must get a cooler class of aliens stopping by.



limey  Wednesday Jul 25 03:41 PM

well done zippyt! You are WAY cool (but then I've always known that!).

This one is called, "A Giant Wasp With a Holy Flyswatter, an Octopus with a Stethoscope & Backwards Baseball Cap, and Two Apples, Fights a Ninja With a Short Sword, an Apple and a Rectangular Shield With Sponsors Names Like NASCAR."



mrputter  Wednesday Jul 25 10:53 PM

So I occasionally tend to fixate on small, unimportant details.

Such as, in this case, the fact that in the two (chronologically) earlier photos, there is a line of telephone poles running along the road that bisects the field. Yet in this year's photo, the telephone poles are gone.


Hmmm...

I heard they're makin' a movie based on that.

The pictures in the link cover several years in several locations.

BZZZZZZZZZZTT WRONG! Please sit down.

They are still there... This year's picture is just more on this end of the field... And the poles for some bazaar reason start half way down the field. I think they're street lights.


Clodfobble  Thursday Jul 26 11:15 AM

Nope, SPUCK, I see it. This is the same building in these two pictures. But I don't think it's photoshopped, I think they just took down the light poles. I guess we can wait and see if they're there next year.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jul 26 02:08 PM

Well, you know all the Oriental(buildings) look alike.
Evidently they yanked the street lights.

edit
They are in the 2003, 2005 and 2006 pictures.



mrputter  Saturday Jul 28 05:31 PM

Thanks, Clodfobble.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to claim it was a photochop or anything -- I'm reasonably happy that they aren't. I just thought it was interesting. Like I said, just fixating on small details.

As pointed out, the poles in this year now start across from the little bride. But in the two earlier pictures, there are poles across from the building circled by Clodfobble, and then another one in between the building and the bridge. Now those first two are gone. I just thought it was strange, 's all.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jul 28 05:44 PM

That's OK, mrputter. We know you're not one of those trouble makers from Quebec.



SPUCK  Monday Jul 30 05:48 AM

All righty then... Nice weather eh?



Yeah I see it now, thanks Clod.
