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 found most parts of Tokyo and Kyoto to be spotless. Walls of buildings were free from graffiti and the streets contained no litter. This man sweeping behind the hotel I stayed in was part of the reason for this immaculate country. Captured in Nihonbashikakigara, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, with a Nikon D90 in October 2010.
Post-processing done in PSE 8, grunge texture added from Altered Bits, and Japanese writing added from my own texture, which was from a sign found in the reserve where this image was captured.
