Autumn in Japan: Protector of the Temple 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.

Birds flocked to the roof of this temple, and this was just one of them. He seemed to be looking down at me, as if to protect his temple.

Captured with my Nikon D90 in Kyoto, Japan, October 2010 at the Higashi Honganji Buddist Temple.

Solarization and layers added in CS5. Grunge frame added from Altered Bits.

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.
