  • Fushimi Inari

    Fushimi Inari

    Last weekend I was able to go to Kyoto and visit the Fushimi Inari shrine.  It is perhaps most famous for its rows of Torii Gates, which line the path up to the shrine itself.  I’m not sure exactly how many there are, but there are at least thousands of these gates along the path….

  • Kintai Bridge Redux

    I recently learned some new techniques for post processing my images, so I decided to go back to some old photos I had done that I didn’t like very much at the time to see what I could do.  I was pretty happy with how this one turned out! If you don’t know, this is…

  • Shimotsui Sunset

    Went up the sister mountain of Washuzan, and got to watch a beautiful sunset this evening.  Only bad part – apparently this spot is a mosquito hang out.  I’ve not been bitten by that many in who knows how long.  Still, I think I got some good shots! Hope you agree!  By the way, this…

  • Seto-Ohashi Bridge – Lights On!

    Every Saturday night (as well as during some special times of the year) the lights on the Seto-Ohashi Bridge are turned on.  I finally decided the other night to make the bike/hike up to Washuzan Mountain to take some photos.  Pretty pleased with the way this one turned out.            …

  • Yours Truly

    Took this photo tonight while out doing some photography of the Seto-Ohashi Bridge at sunset.  It was actually quite the challenge to get from the camera to the ledge in time without falling to my demise.               By the way – stay tuned for some of the photos I…

  • Seto Ohashi Bridge & Shimotsui

    Back when the Herrington family was with us, Paul and I went up Washuzan Mountain one evening and Paul was gracious enough to lend me his tripod that night.  Anyway, got this picture that evening and really liked it.  I desperately hope I can go back up there one evening – maybe when the bridge…

  • Bikan Bridge 2.0

    The more I looked at it, the less happy I was with the original picture from the Bikan Quarter I put up here.  So, I did it over, and I think this one looks a bit better.  Hope you think so too!

  • More Bikan District

    Here’s another photo I took from the Bikan District the other day in Kurashiki.  I wish the sky had been prettier, but I like the way everything else turned out really.  Hopefully I’ll get to go back some time before we leave … maybe I need to go very early in the morning (ugh).

  • Bikan District

    Went over to Kurashiki City today (actually Kojima is a part of Kurashiki City) and got to do some photography at night in the Bikan District.  Here’s one of the photos I took.  I have several others, but I need time to edit them.  Until then … enjoy!

  • Water Under the Bridge

    Under the Seto-Ohashi Bridge in Shimotsui.  Need to go back when it’s not rainy season.
