9 days to go now. I have all the details, finally. The job type, where I’ll be living. I get to ride a bike to work! Yes incidental fitness!
No more from me until I’m moved into my new apartment and with internet connection now. I’ll be back in the habit of taking a billion photos a day, at last.
Thanks to the (so far) 922 people following me. This blog has always been my own work and nothing else, so I really do appreciate every single one of you. I hope you like all things Japanese. Until April/また４月。
Here’s a photo of my cute little town. It’s close to Kobe, and not too far from Kyoto and Osaka. It’s surrounded by forested hills (perfect), all of which I plan on hiking. The roads are ideal for a single speed; I think I’ll restore a second-hand racer as a project. What else? Be happy, have fun. Life is nice. I earned it.
Humans. Don’t understand them.
I can’t wait to retire. Cabin in the mountains. No people. Just trees.
I’ve just finished what I think will be my penultimate Nepal post (one more to come, covering the Nepal Tattoo Convention). It covers the iconography and meaning of Tibetan artworks (monastery Thangka). If anyone has any input or comments, I’d love to hear them. Thanks to everyone who has read my nonsense thus far. I hope that Japan 2014 will be another (very long) adventure that I can share with y’all.
It seems that ‘photography bloggers’ actually charge people money to tell them how ISO and aperture works via Skype.
Or you could spend half that amount on a basic ‘fundamentals of photography’ manual. Or you could find it for free online, or in your camera’s instruction manual.
Hacks masquerading as masters. Who are these people. Composition tips? Thanks bro. How your work never made it to the NPG I’ll never know. Hang on to that day job.
New blog post! Portraits of the young monks at Shree Gautam Buddha and an overview of what I learned about them during my time in Nepal.
