Arutemu! Lovely as always. If sometime you are free, I'd love to tag along to shoot alongside with you. I think I could learn a lot, especially in terms of urban shooting and cityscape! Love your work.

Ever visited that Hikawa Maru? Seems Charlie Chaplin traveled to Japan on it back in his day. Pretty cool first class lounge to see.....everything is quite small, the fist apartment I rented in Montreal was built in the the `20`s and all the door handles were just a couple of inches lower.

From Wikipedia:

The most common is that ships were thought of as floating castles, and the word referred to the defensive "circles" or maru that protected the castle.
That the suffix -maru is often applied to words representing something that is beloved, and sailors applied this suffix to their ships.
That the term maru is used in divination and represents perfection or completeness, or the ship as a small world of its own.
A legend of Hakudo Maru, a celestial being that came to earth and taught humans how to build ships. It is said that the name maru is attached to a ship to secure celestial protection for it as it travels.
For the past few centuries, only non-warships bore the maru ending. It was intended to be used as a good hope naming convention that would allow the ship to leave port, travel the world, and return safely to home port: hence the complete circle arriving back to its origin unhurt.
Note also that Hinomaru or 'sun-disc' is a name often applied to the national flag of Japan.

Don't know which one is the reason, but they all seem reasonable.
