The Five Story Pagoda of Sensoji

If you read my blog regularly you know that I recently purchased the Nikon D610 and sold my D7000. After selling the D7000, I used the money to purchase Nikon’s 16-35mm f/4 VR lens.

Narita Gion Matsuri

This past weekend I went with fellow photographer Anthony Wood to the Narita Gion Matsuri. Since coming back to Japan in 2012, I haven’t been to that many festivals, so when Anthony invited me to join him at this one, I was excited to take him up on it. And this one did not disappoint!…
