Hope everyone is having a great day. Today's photo is a shot I took this summer with my Fuji X-Pro1 at a local festival. It had rained on and off most of the day and was drizzling during this performance. While the rain was an inconvenience, I do like how it adds contrast to the image colors and lighting.

Hey everyone. Hope your all doing well today. I took this photo last year while testing my x100T that I had just upgraded to. The photo is part of a blog post I did on shop keepers in Naha. Click here to view that story. I love how he's surrounded with so much merchandise and yet everything looks in place.

Hope everyone is doing well today. Today's photo was shot with my Fuji X-Pro1 and my 56mm f/1.2 (I still love my X-Pro1) of the seawall in Mihama behind American Village. This area is getting nicer every year since the Hilton Hotel opened a couple years back.

Lanterns area one of my favorite things about Japan. They are everywhere and while they come in many styles and shapes most look similar to this one. Businesses, usually restaurants and bars use them to let customers know they are open. This one was located in a tourist area outside a souvenir shop. Hope everyone has a great day and thanks for stopping by today.

Hamahiga Island is one of the smaller islands off the mainland of Okinawa, right next to Ikei Island. This shot is from a small village that I love to walk through when I visit there.

Tsuken Island, also known as "carrot island" for it's shape is only about a 15 minute ferry ride from the main island of Okinawa. There's not much there really except farms and fisherman. In fact you can rent a bike and ride the island in a couple hours. This shot is from the port where the ferry drops you off. Hope everyone has a great day. Thanks for stopping by today.

Photo of the Day - In search of Waves

Good morning everyone. It's another rainy day here in Okinawa. So far we've had far more rainy days than sunny days this year. I shot this a few years back with my Fuji x100 in the southern part of Okinawa. The waves were really small that day and I remember thinking how dedicated the local surfers were to go out even with little to no waves. I guess when you have a passion for something you can draw enjoyment from it even under less than perfect scenarios. I can totally relate.😊 Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Friday everyone. According to an article in the Ryukyu Shimpo, the first rice planting of the season has begun in Yaeyama. Reading the article made me think of this photo I took a couple years back with my Fuji X-Pro1 of a rice farmer near Onna, Okinawa working in his rice paddies. Thanks for stopping by today.
