Well it took a little while but I've finally finished keywording, captioning and uploading my recent batch of images from Kyoto, Nara and Sapporo, Japan.
Regular readers of my blog will know that my wife is Japanese and we go up there at least once, sometimes twice, a year. Usually we just fly up to Sapporo to visit family but this time we spent a week with my father-in-law travelling around the ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara.
And what a treat it was. Heading into spring meant that all the new growth was out and everything was bathed in a luscious green. The image above is from the Kasuga-Taisha Shrine in Nara, which is famous for the thousands of stone lanterns, known as 'ishidoro' which line the main path on the way up.
It's a beautiful. peaceful place interrupted only by the marauding deer that nearly bowl you over in their quest for a feed!
So pop on over to my Latest Work gallery where you'll find some of my favourites.
Also I have been regularly posting new photos from this trip over on the Have Camera Will Travel Facebook page. So if you haven't Liked us yet pop on over. I regularly pass on little tidbits and pieces of photography news that I discover on the web.
I look forward to seeing you there and having some conversations!
