Mount Nokogiriyama

Mount Nokogiriyama is a hidden treasure which I am very surprised to hear that hardly anyone knows about. A few years ago a huge road that travels just less than 10 km under the sea and just under 5 km over it, made it much easier and faster to get across Tokyo bay. (you can…

there is a story behind every image…

It is true you know, behind every image you and I take there is a story, a thought, a feeling, an emotion and a reason we click the shutter. I want to talk about the image of the bamboo forest that I recently took on a trip to Kyoto. I have just started my BW…

    Another great post Cassie.

    As frustrating as kids can be sometimes, they also help make us slow down and notice things a bit more.

    I have that exact image of the Golden Temple.
    I love the dramatic grey sky behind it that you have captured. Such a contrast to the bright temple.

    Looks like you managed to still see and do a lot even with the kids slowing you down.
    The best thing about not getting to see it all this time, you have an excuse to go back!ReplyCancel

mount Fuji-san…

I never once in my life imagined that I would be standing and looking at Mount Fuji! I have seen many photographs of it over the years and always believed it to be beautiful and magical and then when I found myself standing looking straight at it I realised I was not even close, it…

  • I love your images of Mt. Fuji-san! So beautiful. I never got a chance to climb up it but it sure is beautiful from a distance. I was always amazed to hear stories of little old ladies walking up with their high heels or slippers and not sneakers. Beautiful. I love your travel pictures.ReplyCancel
