Analog Sunday

I woke up this morning wanting to buy some new photography equipment.  I’m not sure why.  Perhaps it was because my friend John Hall Blog let me try his Leica Q on Friday night.    That is a pretty amazing camera.  I checked availability but nothing is available... read more

Staying Balanced

Another busy week in Tokyo.  I am working really hard to keep everything in my life balanced.  It easy to get really busy or focused on one thing and have something else end up falling over.   For the past few weeks I felt like I have been able to maintain a very good... read more

Sell Your Soul

Another busy week in my life.  I think I am finally finding a good balance of my work schedule, Japanese study, photography and family (at least this week).  I hope I can continue to balance this and maybe find a little more time for exercise.  I have been watching... read more

A few days in NYC

I just spent a few days in New York City last week.   I haven’t been here since I took the Jay Maisel Workshop.  That was probably the best week of photography of my life.  A great group of class mates and a great instructor. Half of this trip was work and then... read more
