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.
I'm back in Tokyo with my family for a mini vacation, and for my daughter to see Taylor Swift in concert this Wednesday. Yeah I'm a great dad like that. 😊 Lucky for me I also just upgraded my Fuji x100s to the new x100T, and I've been dying to break it in. Fuji cameras are famous for great color, and I can't think of a more colorful city to show off those colors than Tokyo. My daughter wanted to visit Dean & Deluca in Yurokucho. While my wife and daughter enjoyed tea and pastries I took the opportunity to walk around a little outside the station.
I took this from a park off of Jagaru road overlooking Chatan. I've shot this same image (minus) the fireworks before and it came out nice and sharp, but this time it's not as sharp. Could have been the humidity as it was crazy hot. So while I couldn't make a large print of it, it's still not bad at smaller sizes and on the web. Hope everyone has a great 4th of July.
I drove up to Zanpa Point yesterday afternoon to shoot the cliffs and hopefully get a sunset. The clouds ended up covering the sun as it neared the horizon but the colors were still pretty cool so I stuck around even as most people left. I had shot quite a few images and I wasn't getting excited about any of them and then something completly normal but unexpected happened. The light in the lighthouse came on. It took a few tries but eventually I got a shot with the light shining in my direction. Perfect end to a long day and many hours in this one location.
