Way back in late 2015, I promised my BFF, Rachel, I’d join her for a return trip to Japan for her birthday. I got to visit her there while she and her hubby were stationed near Tokyo in 2009. If you have the fortune to move to a different country and happen to fall in love with it, you know that it becomes a second home in your heart. Japan is that place for Rachel. I, too, know that feeling (Western Europe, for me) so I definitely wanted to tag along! Enjoy!

These photos, at the Sensoji Temple, were my very first attempt at street photography. The location was perfect for starting the practice! This area is rich with color, traditional dress and rituals.
