Part of 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.
This image of a vending machine outside a home surprised me at first. But….after a few days in Japan, I realized that vending machines seemed to pop up anywhere and everywhere. I found this random vending machine by accident – when I got off the “shinkansen,” I walked in the wrong direction. (Eventually I figured out that I wasn’t getting any closer to the Imperial Palace and turned back towards the station, crossed through it and continued on). Captured with a Nikon D90, in October 2010.
“Grungey texture” added from Altered Bits. Filters added and adjustments made in CS5.
