Here are some of my most recent photos, taken over the last twelve months. I will also post some older photos on separate pages within this section of the website… in due course!
Disclaimer! I am neither a professional photographer, nor a semi-professional photographer, nor even a dedicated amateur. All I do is point my aging Nikon D40 in the general direction of what I want to snap and press the button! I make do with the bog-standard lens that came with the camera, an AF-S DX Nikkor, 18-55mm. I could really do with a telephoto lens but have yet to get around to getting one…

My Recent Photos
Miyajima in the autumn.
We visited the Tottori sand dunes during our summer holiday in August 2012.
Our neighbourhood summer festival takes place in a car park behind the Daiki DIY store, July 2012.
This photo was taken on May 26th 2012, without the help of a tripod, close to Mihara bullet train station. Some friends and I went on a day trip to Mihara to visit another friend. That evening we were heading from an izakaya to a bar and I stopped to take this photo when I noticed the alignment of the moon and the broadcasting tower, caught between the outer wall of the castle and the trees in the park.
On Monday 23rd April we went to the Hiroshima Mint to see the “double blossom” cherry trees – Yaezakura – in full bloom. The Hiroshima Mint throws open its garden to visitors when the cherry trees are in blossom and as the sun goes down lanterns are lit between the trees.
This photo was taken in January 2012 at a New Year bonfire festival at a school in the suburbs of Hiroshima.
