Photography: Landscapes

After returning from India I promised myself that I would try to see more of Japan, preferably by bicycle and with a camera. These are far from great shots – I have know idea how to take a good landscape – but it doesn’t matter. It’s the getting outdoors part that’s the most enjoyable.

I’m taking a week long trip to Shikoku next week to travel around both Kochi and Tokushima prefectures (I used to live in Tokushima) and to catch the wonderful Awa Odori for what I think will be my 5th time. I’ll be taking my Leicas, a huge Mamiya RB67 borrowed from Darren, and of course my bicycle(s).

インドから帰ってきた後日本をもっと見ると決めました。出来るだけカメラを持ちながら自転車で。風景の撮り方あまり分からないので下に載せた写真はあまりだと思いますが、写真より外に出て日本を見る事の方が大切だと思います。

今週末から四国の徳島県と高知県行きます (12年前に徳島に住んでいました)。阿波お踊りも見に行きます。これで五回目かもしれません。もちろん、ライカやDarrenから借りたマミヤRB67と自転車を持って行きます。

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.

    • Thanks.

      I think there’s far too much photography from Japan based on Tokyo. I’ve been wanting to explore lesser known places with a camera for quite a while now.
