Cycling & Photography: Nov. 19th – Lake Biwa and Kyoto

Over the weekend I took a bicycle trip from Inuyama, around Lake Biwa, Japan’s largest lake, and down to Kyoto. Both Lake Biwa and Kyoto look wonderful at this time of year.

I hung out with a good friend in his colour darkroom and together with his wife Ariko. We also went to a fantastic photography bookshop, Artbook Eureka. If you are in Kyoto defintely take the time to check it out if you like photography.

先週末自転車で犬山から琵琶湖を通って、京都行ってきました。やはりこの季節に景色が奇麗。

知り合いのショーンアリコ夫婦の家で泊まって、写真用のカラー暗室で写真プリントを作ってみました。 Artbook Eurekaという素敵な写真集の本屋さんも来店して、これから写真集を買う時にその店に頼みたいと思います。写真に興味あるならおすすめです。

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.
