Great for Japanophiles, for friends & family back home. These calendars are about A4 size per page, about A3 when open. It includes Japanese holidays, card like pages so they have a great soft texture, and of course great photos.
Update. As of the 30th Nov, there may be delays of 3-5 days for 2019 calendar orders, as the print vendor had a better than expected Black Friday / Cyber Monday period. You can still get them before Christmas if you order now, and see previews here http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/ablyth
It is hard for me to be on this side of the camera. It took me about 10 takes to do this (on two days). Eventually, I gave up and just went with this one. I know being a model is hard, and I really get it now.
This Photo of the Week is a simple one, but I really like it. A guy in a traditional store in Gion Kyoto adding more items to display. It’s more in the tourist area than the Geisha area, but it’s still Gion. Many shop keepers in Japan choose to wear these kinds if clothes, so I don’t regard it a costume for the benefit of tourists. This image, and more like it, are available at my agent’s website Asia Photo Connection / Henry Westheim.
