Hello, Tokyo

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. -Marcel Proust

Last week, I was lucky enough to travel to Tokyo, Japan for a school trip. Our school went to an art festival for military schools across Asia called Far East Creative Expressions. There were acrylic, watercolor, digital art, and many more art workshops for students to learn and improve upon their craft. I, of course, attended the photography workshop! It was a very busy and exhausting week, but I had an amazing time learning about what I love and exploring the wonderful city of Tokyo. I had the opportunity to go to the observation deck of the Tokyo Tower, explore Harijuku (internationally known for its youth fashion and culture), visit many art galleries, eat traditional Japanese food, and walk through Shibuya (which has the busiest crosswalk in the world)!…

On the first day of class, our teacher asked us to create a unique concept for the photographs we would take while in Japan. I decided to focus on the people of Tokyo; I love to capture people and their different expressions. The first set of pictures are personal photos I took of Tokyo. The second set of pictures are my conceptual photos for the photography workshop I took. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

  1. Stunning photos! I love the lighting of the photo of the boy smiling… you can’t help but feel his joy. Your writing and photography makes me want to quit my job, sell my possessions and just travel!

    • Thank you so much! The little boy smiling was so cute! He was so excited when he saw I was taking his picture and that’s where that big smile is coming from. 🙂
