Japan Collection - The Extras

Japan Collection
The Extras

They say that April is the best time to go to Japan; there is so much to see, there is so much to hear and it is the most beautiful... of course hearing this over and over from countless visitors of Japan it was too hard to resist and I had to go.

I have no experience previous to this trip to Japan and I didn't know what to expect. The stories and anecdotes about Japan sounded spectacular; the details, tastes, smells and sounds all sounded like a fantasy rather than a reality.

This trip was a combination of pure enjoyment and a test for my photography. Armed with my eager girlfriend and as much photography equipment as I could carry we headed off to Japan for two weeks.

The photography was indeed plentiful.

One of the many beautiful gardens situated throughout Japan. This one was in Kyoto.

There was so much to see, the country was literally giving me amazing photo opportunities. From the classical, historical to the new and the crazy, Japan had it all. The result of this is an overflow of photographs and memories that I would love to share.

Hidden treasures to be found.

Here are the extras that didn't quite fit Life Vignettes but would be a travesty would it be if I kept them secret. So please do enjoy these if you have already checked out The Japan Collection.

And before I forget, drop everything, pack your bags and head for the airport... you need Japan!!!
