Just the other day I received my annual bill from Zenfolio for this website, and that made me think about how I have totally neglected this blog for the better part of the last two years.  It's not that my interest in photography has waned, but for some reason I haven't made the time to collect my thoughts and photos and put together blog entries.  Which is a shame, because we took this wonderful photography trip to Kyoto, Japan in November where I fell in love with both the city and the culture.  And,  I made some photographs that I love and would like to share.  So, I'm sort of making a late new year's resolution to pay more attention to this blog, and to think about making and sharing images.   And for starters, I'm going to revisit our wonderful trip last fall, and share some of my favorite images from the trip.

Our first day in Kyoto was rainy, which really brought out the saturated colors in the trees located in the Imperial Gardens across the street from our hotel.  We got totally soaked, but had a great time exploring the area.

We had a wet and wonderful time exploring the park...there were beautiful trees, interesting paths, a line of youngsters in colorful raincoats, unique architectural details, a small shrine, hanging lanterns, and a beautiful Japanese woman entering a tea house.  What an excellent start to our trip!
