Travel Photography in Japan

Pedestrian crossing in Osaka Umeda

As I mentioned in the last article this blog will be all about photography. And if you have browsed my site before you’ve probably noticed that all images are in black and white. But that’s not all I’m shooting. Travel photography is another thing I’m into.

Back in September 2017 my brother-in-law and I went on a trip to Japan. Months before this two-week trip, I planned which photo equipment to take with me. I decided to go very light and packed my Fujifilm X100T, a 28mm equivalent wide-angle converter and a carbon travel tripod (which I didn’t use once). I didn’t regret this decision at any time.

I would like to show you some of my favorite images. The shot above was taken in Umeda from a pedestrian bridge. I like the color pallet very much. There is black, white and red and then there are these yellow bars which make a nice contrast to it. All of the following images were taken in Tokyo.

But my absolutely favorite one is this little girl with the giant heart:
