Mujii

August 15, 2013

My friend Jennifer came to visit in the end of May. I showed her around my favorite spots in the area and we had some great adventures. We saw a badger, snakes, leeches, a baby wild boar, and flying squirrels! Here are a few pictures from the places we went.

Tanzania 2013 w/ Aardvark Safaris

August 14, 2013

We went to Tanzania on safari for two weeks during July. It was an amazing trip to an amazing place and there is so much I would like to write about it but if I do that I’ll never get around to posting pictures so I’m just going to post the pictures now and hopefully post some thoughts about the trip later.

We took a drive up to Nojiri this afternoon and found a nice hill covered in azaleas.

Night and day

March 26, 2013

I’m still playing around with long night exposures. We drove out to the Saitobaru burial mounds last night to check out the rape flowers and cherry blossoms. It’s always beautiful out there and I was happy to try taking night pictures for the first time. We saw a tanuki as we were leaving and I had to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a deer on the way back.
