Nakameguro Festival

In my overly busy schedule lately I was able to get out for a few hours so I headed to Nakameguro.  Luckily there as a festival underway.   I actually attended the same festival at the end of a photowalk a few years ago. I have been running non-stop lately.   I just... read more

The Sony A7s

Finally I get some Sushi

After a month on the road you really miss the comforts of home.   The one thing I really missed aside from my family was Japanese food.  I was dying for some sushi.  I starting eating more and more fish after a while during my trip to the US as I was really getting... read more
