Neither life nor art travels in clear straight lines. While he has spent his adult life developing a career in pharmacy, his interest in the arts has continued to grow. Paul’s passion for photography combined with his love of travel has produced a remarkable portfolio of images inspired by colour and movement. In a small way capturing images satisfies his curiosity about people and their culture.

    Thank you Mel
    Yes the orange torii’s wound their way up the mountain side amongst the maple trees and bamboo. I could have stayed there the whole day!

    Really great photo Paul!

    I really wanted to visit this place on my trip to Kansai, but unfortunately time was short.

    Well composed. I like how you’ve used the paving below to dictate the horizon, not the wood above.

    Thank you Stephen – I actually had to use a slow shutter speed to capture this and hence have some photos where people came around the corner – leaving a blur in the photo. If people are keen I could upload that version too.

    I think I’ve been to where this was taken. Japan is a magical place. Great shot!
