THE LAST SHOT Copyright Jim West I shot this photograph in Kyoto, Japan. I love the colors, the moss on the top against the cement wall, and I find that rusted metal is always great. After a closer examination of this photo, I was stunned to see something completely amazing in the center of the wood. If you stretch your imagination a little, it appears that the Christmas nativity scene is present, with Joseph on the left, Mary on the right and baby Jesus in the crib in the center, complete with halo over his head. Of course this was not intended, but as in life, when you look closer at something, you can always find another meaning to things. - Jim West
