I have finished my ShootFukushima project last week. If you haven't gotten a chance to check it out please do. It comprised of 9 posts of the trip.
I spent 3 days in Fukushima trying to capture of beauty of this part of Japan. This region has suffered a lot since the Magnitude 9.0 earthquake of 2011 triggered a tsunami that killed 16,000+ people and triggered a nuclear disaster and I wanted to share a bit of the daily life that still goes on here.
As a photographer is it really good to work on projects sometimes. I haven't done this in a while so it was nice to get the chance to get out and work really hard on one project. I have summarized my project with a video:
A very cool old castle with amazing views from the roof.
A sad story about of group of young samurai who committed suicide when they mistakenly thought they had lost the war.
Known for it's ramen and it should be. It is amazing...
I met with a Kanji master who explained my son's kanji and showed me how it evolved over the years.
Neko Jinja (The Cat Shrine)
As it's name states...it's a shrine, about cats.
Japanese are known for attention to detail and striving for perfection. Have a cup of tea and you can see this all come together.
I visited a beautiful old Sake brewery.
The beautiful 5 color lake. The drive there is as beautiful as the lake itself.
I hope you enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by today...
