Photos from the past. Life in Japan and elsewhere, by me Sean Breslin. Updated weekly.
Over the past year the LUMIX S5 has become a vital part of my day-to-day life and this is why I like it.
I’ve spent more money on ink and paper this month than I have in years. Why? Well, I’ve been going through my catalog of photos dating back to 1995 and making contact sheets of select images from every month. Yes, every month from 1995 to September 2021.
There are times out in the middle of nowhere when you can’t believe that you are actually there and this was one of them. Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya—big cities all unimaginable while stood at the summit of places like this.
The weather this August—torrential rain day after day for almost two weeks. One of my goals this month was to do plenty of hiking, with Mt. Shiomi (塩見岳) in the Minami Alps being the main objective. Mt. Shiomi is a mountain I’ve wanted to climb for some time now but never quite managed it.
I first visited the small town of Wajima (輪島) on the Noto Peninsula (能登半島) while on a bike packing trip back in 2015. Protruding out into the Sea of Japan on the Hokuriku coast (北陸), the Noto Peninsula is one of my favourite places in Japan, and one that has been regularly visited since that first trip.
