Reflection of Osaka Castle

When I think about Japan, one of the things that stands out in my mind is its architecture, and more specifically, its ancient architecture.  While I was visiting, I wanted to capture something that just said "Japan" to me, and while Mount Fuji is unmistakably...

The Tō-ji Pagoda

Prior to leaving for Japan, I asked my friends who had been there what all I should see, and what I should avoid.  Almost universally, people said 'avoid temple-fatigue' in Kyoto.  As it turns out, there are more temples in the Kyoto area than you'd ever want to...

The Splendor of Mount Fuji

Confession time!  Sometimes, I just have a hard time picking favorites.  This week is definitely one of those times.  I got a collection of images while in Japan that include Mount Fuji, and I just can't make up my mind which ones I like better than the others.  So,...

The Sakura Stream

If you talk to people who have either been to Japan, or at least have a deep understanding of the culture, it seems that inevitably the cherry blossom (Sakura) season will come up.  The blossoms are an interesting part of the Japanese culture, and to be quite honest,...

JAPAN! Japan has been on my list of places to go for a while, and it definitely did not disappoint.  In fact, as I mentioned last week, I got a good number of images from there that I'm excited to share, and I'm struggling to decide how to chop it up for content,...

Camp Manitou 2018 – Destin, FL

My family is a week late celebrating Father's Day this year because Holly and I were in China last week when Father's Day actually was.  I suppose it's the height of narcissism when you forget when a holiday is in fact, because that's not when *we* are celebrating it!...

Haha, you guys remember when it was super cold out and we all couldn't wait for it to get hot?  Yeah... me neither!  🙂 I started this series of local images back several weeks ago with a black and white image I captured at Foothills Parkway, and so I thought I'd end...

Have I ever mentioned that I love renting cameras?  I feel like I have.  Anyway, earlier this year I finally got around to renting the camera I've been talking about buying for quite some time (quite some time because Canon took FOREVER to release it), the Canon 6D...

Up-close to a Cyclamen

Alright, so last week I shared an image of a wild flower that grows here in East Tennessee, and this week's picture is of a flower that doesn't grow here... but the picture was taken here... so that counts as 'local', right?  🙂  Close enough for me!  Anyway, this is...
