Artist's Description

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.

When I took the Shinkansen to Kyoto, my main motivation was to see the Imperial Palace. But getting there proved to be a bit of a challenge. After heading in the wrong direction for about 1.5 hours after leaving the train station, I walked back through it, and down the street to the other side. I was anxious to get to the palace, but couldn’t help but stop to take pictures of all of the interesting shop fronts, people, buildings, temples and shrines along the way.

This image was captured in what looked to be an old herbal remedies shop. Hundreds of weird and wonderful seeds, roots, liquids and who knows what lined the windows. It was timeless, and I was curious.

Taken in October 2010 with my Nikon D90. Typewriter texture created with a paper my Grandfather wrote while working on his Phd. Layers adjusted in Photoshop CS5.
