Blue Pontocho

This photo comes from Pontocho – a row of restaurants that line one of the rivers in Kyoto. Visitors can dine on these platforms and enjoy the great atmosphere, which is especially enjoyable during pleasant weather. On this particular evening it had been raining for most of the day, but as you can see the...

  • Gaijin au JaponI really love your work and what you are doing.
    Do you think it will be possible to know what you exactly did on lightroom on this shot?

    Thanks a lotReplyCancel

    • leslieIf I can remember what I did! 🙂 I think the main edits were for white balance to give it a bluer feel, split toning to make the lighted area a bit warmer, and then some edits for specific colors using the color adjustment module. I guess that’s not very specific but hopefully it gives you an idea!ReplyCancel

Shoot For The Moon

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” This is a photo I took in Choshi earlier this year. As the day came to an end, Anthony Wood and I found ourselves on the rocky Japanese coast line, with this lighthouse beaming a light through the night sky. It was...

    Shiraito Falls

    In May I took a trip down to Shizuoka Prefecture for a meeting, and anytime I travel I can’t help but hope to use the chance to also take some photos! Thankfully, the meeting ended in the early afternoon which left me just enough time to take a short trip to Shiraito Falls. This lovely...

    A Lovely Spring Day In Satte

    Got to spend a beautiful Spring day in Satte today with my family. Satte is in Saitama Prefecture, and although it’s only an hour or two outside of Tokyo, it’s not nearly as crowded but (in my opinion) more lovely than anywhere I’ve seen in Tokyo. Especially mixed with the yellow rapeseed blossoms, the large...

      The Sakura Big One

      Cherry Blossom season is upon us here in Japan! It started late last week, while today and tomorrow will likely be the peak days around Tokyo. I was a bit concerned after we had much rain and wind yesterday, but thankfully the blossoms were very early in their progression and managed to hang on. I’ve...

      • AndrewLooking good. I will be in Japan in a few weeks so just missed out on hanami this year!ReplyCancel

        • leslieThanks! That is too bad but there is plenty to enjoy in Japan at any time! Will you be in the Tokyo area? If so you should check out the Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture. It’s about a 2 hour trip from Tokyo, but it’s lovely. I did a post on it several weeks back: http://lestaylorphoto.com/a-day-at-hitachi-seaside-park/ReplyCancel

      • Blossoms Like Clouds » Les Taylor Photo[…] are so many different ways to look at and enjoy them. This shot comes from the same tree as in this picture from a few days back. That one was taken with a wide angle lens, while this was taken with my 85mm (which on my cropped […]ReplyCancel
