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 actually planned on taking photos while aboard the “Shinkansen” from Tokyo to Kyoto, but once I realized how fast the bullet train was moving and felt slightly sick when I tried to focus on an object outside the window, I decided against it! Instead, I waited until we made one of a few stops in between the cities. I can’t recall what city this image was taken in, but I loved seeing the English word, “Boom” on a huge billboard. Captured with a Nikon D90, in October 2010.
Frame added from Photo Radar. Selective coloring and gradient filter added in CS5.
