Autumn in Japan:  Writing Letters by Jen Waltmon

Autumn in Japan: Writing Letters by 

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.

Not much of a story here. I just saw this post “box” on a street in Tokyo and liked it because it had “Post” labeled in both Japanese and English. Captured in Nihonbashikakigara, Chuo-ku, in October 2010 with a Nikon D90.

Post-processing done in PSE 8 and typewriter texture added from Altered Bits.

Featured in the “Photography Japan” Group, April 2011 – January 2012

Photography to me isn’t just about capturing beauty or magic. It’s about capturing life as it is. Whether that’s ugly, dirty, beautiful, complicated, simple or slightly altered – it’s the perception of the person behind the camera. That’s what makes the art of photography so real and unique, and that’s why it’s a passion that drives me and leaves me wanting more.

    Hi Jen,
    I had just gotten to the end of my comment and the battery died in my computer so here I am back again. Just as striking second time around. I love the everyday things that jump out when in a foreign land. The Japanese for some reason makes this really special. I love your idea of layering the type as a texture too and the black letters against the red really ages this. That is brilliant. Great work.

  • Wow, thanks Jodie! What an awesome comment! Thank you, merci and gracias! :)
