Autumn Beneath The Meganebashi Bridge

After a day  in Kawaguchiko and another day in Karuizawa, fellow photographer Anthony Wood and I found ourselves traveling along the mountain roads of Gunma Prefecture. The area was remarkably similar to some of my favorite places in the US, and with the autumn colors going strong, it was hard not to stop every half...

    Chapel at Karuizawa Kogen Church

    One of the places high on my list to visit and shoot during my recent trip to Karuizawa was the Karuizawa Kogen Church. As a Christian myself, I have a keen interest in the few Christian locations that exist around Japan, and as a photographer, I love to shoot them whenever possible. This particular visit...

As an American, autumn is also special because it marks the beginning of our country’s most holiday filled period, with a major holiday taking...

      Bamboo Forest of Hokokuji

The grove connected to Hokokuji Temple in Kamakura is a great example of this. Although Hokokuji itself is rather small and a bit out of the...

      • Where Earth Meets Sky » Les Taylor Photo[…] This Thanksgiving my family had the chance to enjoy a final get together with some good friends of ours who have been living on Yokosuka Naval Base. They’ve blessed us each year with a chance to come down and eat with them, to enjoy a true American Thanksgiving meal. They’ll be headed back to the US this month though, which is why it was our final time together. Anyway, since we were down there and they are about to leave, I did a small family portrait session for them in one of their favorite places – Hokokuji. After we were done taking family pictures, I hung back for a few minutes to take some photos of the lovely bamboo, so that’s where today’s photo comes from. This wasn’t my first time to Hokokuji, but every time I go I can’t help but photograph the beautiful bamboo. […]ReplyCancel

      A Day at Hitachi Seaside Park

      One of the things I love most about Japan is the number of places that seem like they could have come straight out of a fantasy land in a book. One such place is the Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture. Certainly, Ibaraki isn’t the most popular of prefectures in Japan, but perhaps some of...
