Today's photo is a beautiful scene from the coastline of Kin Village in Okinawa. I never tire of views like this here in Okinawa.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Okinawa is known for beautiful beaches and ocean views. I took this photo of Araha, Beach in Chatan, Okinawa with my iPhone 6s Plus. In the distance you can see the Ferris wheel from American Village. Thanks for stopping by today.

This is a shot I took with my Fuji x100T a few months ago. It was one of those perfect Okinawa days.

Day two in Tokyo took me to Ebisu, for a short pit stop at a store in the station, Omotesando, where I was finally able to check out and try on the new Apple Watch, a walk in Yoyogi Park to see Meiji Shrine, and a short visit in Shibuya for my daughter to get in a little more shopping, because she was so deprived in Omotesando. 😀 All of the below images were shot in Aperture priority and Provia color settings.

We finally got some decent weather yesterday after a week of rain, clouds and cold. I decided to head over to Chatan and walk around with my iPhone 6 and my Fuji x100s. Just for a change I've had the TCLx100 on for a couple weeks now. I love the 35 equivalent I get from my x100s, but sometimes it's just nice to shoot with a 50mm focal length. I never grow tired of how even the most mundane can look interesting in late afternoon light. I shot the next two images from my car. I see so many photos from my car, but usually can't stop or get to my camera in time.

Maeda Point

Been a while since I posted.  Thought I would post a couple photos from a recent trip out to Maeda Point, a popular snorkeling and diving location here in Okinawa.   This is a small beach about a hundred meters to the left of the main entrance.  I never grow tired of scenes like this.

Weekend Getaway

Spent a few days with the family at Okuma Resort in Kunigami Prefecture.  We try to get up there a few times per year and we are never disappointed with our stay.
