Fushimi Inari Shrine In Kyoto

On my first morning during my trip to Kyoto, I had planned to start shooting for the digital workshop I’m currently working on. Unfortunately, the forecast called for rain, which meant my morning plans were not to be. Thankfully, I had planned out my trip pretty well so I had some places I could check...

    Ride Through The Bikan

    This photo comes from my family’s trip to Okayama Prefecture several weeks back. I didn’t include it in the Kurashiki Evening post, I’m not sure why, but anyway I like it a lot. Sometimes as a photographer it’s good to get as low as you can, but in certain places that can be a challenge....

      Shimotsui Sunset

      This past week my family had the opportunity to travel back to Okayama where we lived 3 years ago. As you can imagine, I was really excited to take my camera around many of these places that I remember so well. For one, there were many spots that I never shot and afterward really wished...

        Salaryman’s Winter

        Although Spring is just around the corner here (actually it’s officially tomorrow!) but today it is rainy and feels much like Winter. I suppose that’s fitting for the end of this Winter, as it’s been quite cold and we even got a lot of snow. I took this photo during the first snow in Tokyo...
