Artist's Description

From my “Autumn in Japan” series.

I’ve wanted to visit Asia since I was a teenager, and in October of 2010, my wish finally came true. I spent about 10 days in Japan.

My fascination with Asian culture and traditions finally became a reality to me, and the photographer in me went into overdrive. In 10 days, I captured 2,500+ pictures. I hope you enjoy my first (but hopefully not my last) perspective of this beautiful & amazing country.

I captured this image from this angle purposefully to give the idea that the giant metal rose was almost as tall as the surrounding buildings. I thought it to be quite random – just a large metal flower stabbed into the concrete outside a shopping center. Then, when I worked on the post-processing and added this grunge frame from Altered Bits, the whole scene reminded me of a whimsical tale from a story-book.

Taken with my Nikon D90 in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo, Japan, in October 2010.

Post-processing done in CS5.
