Travel Photo Series – Kyoto


As I’m always running after more time – to read, to take or edit photos, to write, to live, perhaps to sleep – I’m always behind in my blogging, with hundred of drafts clogging my WordPress and simply too many ideas and things to do for the short 24 hours a day holds. I decided to try something new around here and publish photo posts every week. As a new way of creating content, of sharing moments on the road that were special and unique, and as an incentive to sort through my gazillion photos. This might actually give me the push that I need to finish those drafts!

So, without further ado, I’ll kick off this new series with a photo from a place of which I’ve spoken very little on the blog: Japan. This photo was taken in Kyoto, where we had spent the day exploring around, visiting mainly the breathtaking Fushimi Inari Shrine. At the end of the day, as we were wandering the streets of the old town, I caught a glimpse of a Japanese man pinning a poster on an outside wooden wall. I thought the scene was superb: candid just the way I like them, with a great frame and just enough mystery. I had to snap quickly so I wouldn’t miss the moment, and realized only after that one of the posters on the wall was of an exhibit of Henri Cartier Bresson’s photographs.

And though I hold no pretention whatsoever on the quality of my photos or my eye, I take great pleasure in imagining that that day in Kyoto, I was somewhat guided by the master while photographing this scene…

    Love the photo, and the concept. I keep thinking I should do this – just post a photo once per week, but then I add some text, and a few more photos, and more and it’s a fail for me. I hope you can keep it up, and that it encourages me to do the same 🙂

      Thanks so much Rhonda! Yeah, I know the feeling! Do you also have a TON of photos to go through?! We’ll see how I can keep up, but I have the best intentions! 😀
