At the edge of the world, Biei Hokkadio
If you know this shack or have even seen it you are indeed lucky. The lady to the left was harvesting soy beans and was impressively old to be doing so.

Up early plying our trade in Aomori, Japan
I had taken the 11:00 pm ferry from Hakodate arriving in Aomori at 3:30 am hoping to catch the sun roll in over the mountains on the opposite side of the bay. There was nowhere to sleep on the ferry so I spent most of the night drinking warm beer and eating squid guts, served on a cardboard box table with some of the truckers.
The fisherman must have been out long before I arrived perhaps much of the night plying their trade, perhaps wishing for beer and squid guts. So much in awe of this lone boat I had almost forgot my trade.

A Sakura Dream in Ueno Koen
I spent the day with my family and Friends from Hokkaido at the Zoo in Ueno Koen as we headed toward the car park a gorgeous little weeping sakura tree caught my eye. We shared a a quick day dream together.

First off the Sigma 35 f1.4
I love the Landscape genre and it is Sakura season, but street is in my blood. This the very first shot with the Sigma 35mm F1.4. Looking forward to putting this lens through its paces in April as I embark on a new street project.

Tokyo's Dentsu Building
A gorgeous building in the Shiodome area next to JR Shinbashi Station. I often take photo tours to this exact location. Yes the building is impressive, but what I and most clients enjoy is the fact one can photograph anywhere from the B1 floor to a second story pedestrian walkway. These many vantage points give an icon building a number of fresh ways to see and capture it.

Long Exposure Okinawa
Although Cherry blossom season is just around the corner, I find my thoughts drifting to the all too short Okinawa trip.
All thanks to +David Orr for his generosity in sharing this Island with me. Feel very much indebted Mr, Orr.

All night drive to break dawn in Aomori
After an all night drive to the crater lake Towada on the borders of Aomori and Akita we (+Jeff Matsuya +Jason Arney +Agustin Rafael Reyes ) were greeted by this grand cloud that hung over the lake as dawn broke.
A majestic moment that erases your all night drive and fuels you for some time to come.

My Sakura dream
If your fortunate to be photographing Sakura don't forget to look up. For me that is always the best way to view these dreamy little blossoms.

2012 was a particularly great year for cherry blossoms in Japan. The viewing season was long and the flowers gorgeous. This was taken early in the AM, just after the sun had risen at Asakuyama Park, Oji.
Aside from myself and a few brave individuals staking claim to prime space for that afternoons picnic the park was empty. The relative solitude was great way to enjoy natures delicate beauty.

It seems so much longer then it is, but today is the 2nd anniversary of the 3/11 Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. Myself as well as number of talented photographers in Japan have donated our images to raise funds for the people of Tohoku. If your in Tokyo this week a gallery show will be held in Azabu, as well prints and books are available through the MyJapan website link below.
Even taking just a moment to like their page on Facebook would be greatly appreciated.

Ume is here and Sakura is right around the corner. What could be better?
Cats in napping Sakura trees would be the correct answer. Taken last year in what was one of the best Sakura seasons I have seen in quite some time at Ueno park.

The gorgeous scenes of Biei, Hokkaido
This sunset taken just minutes from the pension that bordered me. Those rolling fields surrounded by mountains covered by the grandest sky intoxicated me greater then any previous high.

As seen from the observation platform of the Shinhotaka rope-way (http://www.okuhi.jp/Rop/english.pdf). The rope-way's final stop is at a height of 2200 meters and offers some spectacular views.
The down side however is that the final descending gondola departs at 4:15 pm which is to earl even for a winter sunset. In order to capture what I am sure will be gorgeous sunset/sunrise scene one must both hike and camp on the mountain.
I hope that +Tom Taylor can help out with that?
I was fortunate enough to travel here with +Jeff Matsuya , +Jason Arney , and +Agustin Rafael Reyes . All of whom have fantastic images of Japan to share.

Tokyo commuter ghosts
Have a great weekend and happy commute home. Taken at JR Komagome Station on the fabulous Yamanote line. If you have a chance to sit in the first class car, you wont be disappointed.

First Sunset in Okinawa
As it turned out this was the last sunset too. When we approached the beach there was a lot of cloud cover, aside from the occasional sun ray bursting through it looked as though we may not get to much color.
By the time we set up the clouds began to break apart in clusters revealing a gorgeous blue.
The sun nor the colors lasted to long, but that is what makes this kind of experience special. A fading moment that you have the wherewithal to appreciate within its short existence.

Reflections of Spring in Tokyo
The Ume(plum) blossoms are starting to bloom on the tree in our yard, which means spring is afoot. Greatly looking forward to what this year has to offer.

From Okinawa to the Japan Alps
All in the span of a single week. It may in fact be what has drawn me into more landscape photography that Japan offers such an abundance of natural beauty. Actually found myself pricing camper vans today.

After losing my pants to the sharps rocks we setup on, I kept shooting. This being the result. The fisherman standing nearby must have had a good chuckle at my expense, at least I hoped they did.

Spending some time on the Tokyo Streets
This is a personal favorite of mine from Kanda station area on Tokyo's Yamanote Line. Always a great spot, but even better in the rain.

For the commute home in Tokyo
Looking for rocks in Okinawa, but all we found was this bridge over turquoise water. Enjoy a great weekend after the long working week.

Big waves and Big rocks in Okinawa
Standing out on the rocks and watching the waves crash in on a blustery day was Zen, but it cost me my pants.
Squatting on the often sharp and uneven rock formations jutting out of the Northern tip of the island, I momentarily lost my balance. I regained it just in time to avoid injury, but had split my pants from the belt to the knee. These were my favorite photography pants. From the islands to mountain tops these pants had seen and photographed a lot.
Having just eaten lunch, and being closer to nowhere then somewhere I would spend the rest of the day in my split pants. Two images were created that I was very happy with, allowing my pants not to die in vein.

Last Stop Lighthouse in Okinawa
It may very well be the first stop for many photographers and tourists alike, but it was my last as +David Orr helped me to circumnavigate the Island of Okinawa, chasing light, clouds and waves. Can't wait to get back and explore some the other islands.
You can see a similar version of the lighthouse in B&W here: http://www.facebook.com/jeff.austin.372661

No sunrise, but moody Okinawan Skies
A momentary burst of sun through the clouds was as close as a sunrise I would see in Okinawa. It made for a great weekend of long exposures and the occasional sunburst like the one here. If I spent more then a few days there I am not sure I would be able to leave, perhaps for the beauty of Hokkaido.

Old man and the sea at low tide
Shot near Naha, Okinawa. A fisherman gutting a fish caught from one of the pools of sea water left during low tide.

Return for Refund in Okinawa
On my first day of a recent long exposure tour of Okinawa, the weather although beautiful was not so cooperative for the type of image we were after. A glass coca-cola bottle washed ashore east of Naha, had me laying in the sand with the macro lens hoping to salvage something of the afternoon. As it turns out we were gifted a spectacular sunset that evening followed by several days of optimal long exposure weather. Days that yielded several exciting images.
As I look through that collection of images I am very happy to have this one. *It reminded me to always shoot what is right in front of you*
Posted for Okinawan macro shooter +Naoko Orr . Many thanks to you and David for opening your home and sharing the beauty of Okinawa with me. Also a big thanks to +Kazuma U for showing us around the southern part of the Island.

One of Japan's 100 most beautiful villages. I am not sure of its exact ranking , but it must be near the top. Although it lacks the beauty and charm of Biei in Hokkaido it does carry the weight of tradition.

Back to the sunrise in Okinawa
The moody skies suggested we turn our back to the sunrise and shoot on the opposite side of the island. Several of my favorite images are from this beach. A big thank you to +David Orr for taking me here.

"I`d rather shoot a rock,"... in Okinawa
A big thank you to +David Orr for inviting me and taking around his beautiful home of Okinawa. David is a fantastic photographer so if you do not have him in your circles he is a must add.
This being my third trip to Okinawa, but first chance to shoot for myself. David had a knack for hitting the best spots at just the right time.

Blue Pond, Hokkaido
A location I wanted to visit at least twice this summer while in Biei and Furano are of Hokkaido. However the beauty of these two villages was so captivating that I spent most days shooting from dawn until dusk.
So cast in Hokkaido's spell am I that a return trip can not come soon enough.

A Christmas present for +andrew holian
I believe these bags of torsos were found in either Hiroshima or Fukuoka. I was working like mad photographing hotel Interiors in both cities and took to the streets when ever I had a chance. Hope you enjoy Andrew.
