Hakuba Mountains

For the first time I could see the tops of the mountains here in Hakuba. It’s about zero degrees Celsius, just my guess from seeing watery-ice in the empty rice fields. Wearing a thermal shirt, a hoodie, and snow jacket makes me feel toasty and warm. It really doesn’t feel cold.
I started the day with a terrible headache, I guess from the release of built up lactic acid in my muscles, and the two days of snowboarding. Anyway, today’s a rest day, so I went for a walk and got some photos for tomorrow’s Wednesday Wander. Depending on the weather, I hope to be back on the mountain trying to perfect my chicken salads, c-turns, and disembarking from the lifts 😄

View from Imori

The view from Imori. Surprisingly, I’m quite hot and sweaty! It’s just not cold enough! 😄
I’ve been announcing on social media that I’m currently in Hakuba until the 27th Dec, and available to do portrait work. Please contact me asap so we can organise a time and place. Payments will be made to PayPal, and more details are on the new TravelPhotos.Asia/portraits website.

Sunday Surprise Autumn Christmas

In an unexpected new segment we are calling Sunday Surprise, is this little random gem I found on my way to the sports store. I have no idea who did this or why, but it’s a nice find. It’s still autumn and it’s celebrating christmas already.
I picked up a few things, so hopefully next week’s snowboarding trip will be a good one.

Autumn Leaves at Nagoya TV Tower

This Wednesday Wander will come in two parts, just because Instagram doesn’t like mixing wide & tall photos in one post. Short story, still have a cold, nose stuffy, husky but nasally voice, and low energy. Husky voices are sexy, but not when they’re nasally too. 😄🤧 This is not the photographic adventure I wanted to do, but it’s the one I can do. Sakae is in-exotically downtown, easily accessible, but close to cafes and lunch venues; perfect for me today.
Update for those in the know, my new Canon 6Dmk2 with Tamron 24-70mm SPf2.8 is still amazing me. Brilliant combo.

Kyoto Restaurant

This Wednesday Wander is a file photo because I’ve been terribly ill these last three days. It’s a tragedy, because I just upgraded cameras, and can’t get out and use it. 😞 Anyway, this is from Kyoto, where a guy is relaxing in a restaurant that overlooks a little canal. I like it because of the mystery, and that he’s framed in the window and with the branches seemingly reaching out to pull him outdoors.
