Kawazu Sakura in Macro

Towards the end of March, just as the Sakura were beginning to blossom, I made an evening trip to Asakusa to see what I might find. As I was walking along the river, I could see some trees across the way that had blossomed quite fully already. These weren’t the typical Somei Yoshino kind you...

    Blossoms Like Clouds

    One of the many things I love about Sakura is how there 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...

      Everything Beautiful – Preparing For The Cherry Blossoms

      Now that we’re in March, the Cherry Blossom trees will be blooming in just a few short weeks, so I’m preparing my photographic eye for the occasion by practicing on the lovely Ume (plum) Blossoms that are all around the area right now. This particular photo was taken at a little park in Tokyo’s Minato...

        A Pensacola Beach Sunset

        I talked a little yesterday about my experience living in North Carolina, so I figured I’d continue my trip down memory lane talking about my hometown of Pensacola, Florida. This is actually the city I was born in, and though I moved around a lot as a kid, it’s where I spent much of my...

          Flying Through Tokyo

          This is another shot I took last week from the World Trade Center in Tokyo. I saw this road between two tall apartment complexes, and I knew I wanted to get a shot of it, but I wasn’t really sure how. You can’t really tell in this photo, but to the right of the frame,...

          • JordanI really like this one. I hope to make my HDR skills as impressive, one day. Great photo!ReplyCancel

            • leslieThanks, Jordan! I think I started w/ HDR when I first saw Trey Ratcliff’s work back in maybe 2007 or 2008. But my original work was … less than impressive, we’ll say. Over the past few years I’ve done a lot more of it and improved my skills there. Actually with this one I used a new program called Perfect Effects by OnOne. They were giving away the program for a few days so I tried it out and I’ve been pretty impressed. Usually though after Photomatix I use Topaz Adjust, so this was a bit of a change for me.ReplyCancel
