Yesterday I had the pleasure of capturing this image in Nara, Japan, on Coming of Age Day where women who turn twenty years old wear their kimono, put on their best makeup, and go to the local shrines and temples. While there were many kimonos to be photographed, this was my favorite photograph I took of people during the day.
This is a scene which would be hard to replicate outside of Japan.
I was fortunate enough to meet some fellow travelers who helped me get onto the roof at the Marina Bay casino. I’ll never forget this. Once I return, I’ll have high quality photos. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas.
Ships pass through Shanghai in the morning hours. On December 22, 2013.
I went to M on the Bund for lunch today, a place recommended by a friend of mine who visited Shanghai two years ago. The view was amazing as was the food. Highly recommended.
An elderly Chinese man flies his kite at sunrise on The Bund in Shanghai, China. An iconic scene.

Day one of an epic journey- Shanghai.
I went to Kobe Luminaire tonight with a few friends. I’ll have a new article posted this week. As you can see, truly breathtaking.
