Hiking, Photography: Thirteen Summers for One Winter

How these photos happened.

1. Get given a bag full of cheap film that’s 13 years out of date. Share some with friends whether they want it or not.
2. Buy a discarded panorama camera that was briefly popular in the 1980s and 90s. Budget for no more than ¥500 ($5/£3)
3. Wait for winter and/or snow.
4. Put on good gloves and boots and go hiking in the Japanese mountains.

*I took my ‘normal’ camera along too.

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.
