The beautiful, and rambunctious Sika deer roam freely by the thousands in the park at the center of Nara, Japan. Considered sacred - killing one of these deer was a capital offense until 1637. Now, protected as National Treasures, tourists and visiting school children feed them crackers. I like to think I managed to capture something of their divine nature in this image.

Untitled, Kyoto, 2011
I was staring at this image, trying to remember exactly where in Kyoto I was when I took it, and have only just now realized that it is actually a double exposure. I think that it is both a view from Kyoto Tower and perhaps a train station. To be honest - I'm really not sure. But I am blown away at how perfectly the horizon line matches. Hard to believe it was an accident.

Untitled, Osaka, 2011
I'm not usually one for cityscapes, but for some reason while in Japan, especially in Osaka, I felt sort of compelled, corporate logos and all. My little Lubitel served me pretty well on the trip and it feels good to have more 2 1/4" images so I think I'll follow this theme for the next couple posts.
Also, in recent news, I appear to be the proud owner of a round trip ticket to Warsaw, Poland. I'll be headed out in February with my fellow world-travel-on-a-dime-partner-in-crime Nathan. We haven't figured out all the details yet and it'll be a rather short trip but I can't wait.
If anyone happens to have any travel tips or advice - bring it on! I'll be my first adventure in that part of the world so I welcome all the info I can get.
