A Bridge In The Woods Of Nagano

I’ve tried to be more pointed in my photography throughout this year. That is to say, when I go someplace, I try to have a better idea of what I want to shoot, rather than just wandering around aimlessly shooting anything and everything. That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with shooting like that, but...

    Where Earth Meets Sky

    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...

      Sunset on Usui Lake

      The last stop on my most recent photography trip ended up being a lovely little lake in Gunma Prefecture called Usui Lake. It was really the perfect ending to the whole trip; the lake was calm and quiet, the autumn leaves and sunset were both vibrant, and there was plenty of time to take in...

        Autumn Lane In Shinjuku Park

I do love a good winter snow storm, and of course adore the cherry blossoms and other flowers of spring, but nothing compares for me to the hues in the trees combined with the crisp...

          Bamboo Forest of Hokokuji

          Although the bamboo forest of Arashiyama in Kyoto is likely Japan’s most famous bamboo grove (and for good reason), there are many other splendid bamboo groves around the country. 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
