Reblogged from The Daily Post: We had so much fun looking at your phoneography posts last month and hope you enjoyed the mobile phone challenges. It was nice to experiment with pocket-sized cameras and discover what we can create with them.

It’s always nice to have a little recognition, thanks […]
I had thought that after six years of living in Japan that I had seen everything, but today I was shown I was wrong. Today started off great, it was slightly above 20℃ with beautiful blue skies and only a hint of wind. That didn’t last long, if you take a look down at the photo to see what I mean. I had started out with the plan of doing a photo walk from my house over to my friend’s […]
To whet your appetite, let us begin with some delicious food photos, these are all from a meal that I had a couple of weeks ago, at a restaurant called Chez Tomo in the Ginza area of Tokyo. When I was young I wasn’t a picky eater, I am sure I tried to eat most things that my parents served but of course I came across foods that I just did not like; fish and liver spring to mind. For […]
This is quite possibly the worst start to a day, having to fold up my futon and blankets, so I can make space to get some work done. Mind you I don’t do this everyday, I really should so as to avoid nasty icky stuff growing on the underside of the under cushion and futon mattress; really only a problem during the humid summer.

First thing, I seem to have had a trigger finger for publishing this post, accidentally hit publish before putting in the rest of the content; premature publish, oh gosh! This past Thursday the weather let up enough to allow me to go out for the day to have lunch in a nice cafe, enjoying hunting around for a coffee shop that I`ve heard rumours about and to get some photos taken.
I have been trying to take more of an interest in photography as of late. It’s one thing to randomly take photos while with friends at a party, or snap some shots of food, or take hundred of vacation photos and then toss them all on Facebook or Flickr. Entirely different is the process of taking the time to compose, capture unique and interesting photographs, while understanding all the components that make up photography.

I’m on my way back to Japan after a two week visit to see my family back home in Bruce Mines. We left our house this morning at around 7am so I could catch my plane from Sault Ste. Marie to Toronto, the weather was beautiful when I left, clear skies and smooth sailing as it were. Toronto was a tad cloudy with a bit of rain when we landed, so that wasn’t a problem, the problems started later on.
