A mixture of my fun life as a content creator

Carpe Diem

I’ve taken the past few months off of social media and blogging to digitally detox a bit. I’ve continued to shoot and built up a nice backlog of images so let me catch you up with my life…visually.
Today’s Configuration: Leica M10 w/ a Summicron 28mm f/2.0, Summilux 35mm f/1.4 and Summilux 50mm f/1.4
My friend Steve came to visit us for a weekend. It’s always good to see Steve.
Just 4 short kilometers from my house is Tamagawa Bike Path. You can go for something like 80 kilometers. Beautiful scenery in every direction. Lots of flowers growing along the river. Nice little temples are hidden away. One day I even went through a second where what seemed like 100 black butterflies were born. They were flying everywhere and a few that were waiting for their wings to dry after being born were kind enough to pose for a photograph.
One of my first long rides I made it to Haneda Airport. Only the second time I’ve been to the airport this year. Did you know there were these huge Torii Gates there?
This is a beautiful little garden off the back of our room.
We saw these beautiful summer houses up in Karuizawa while out on a walk. Beautiful and crazy expensive. Another fun getaway about 180 kilometers north of Tokyo. This town became famous as John Lennon lived here with Yoko Ono for a while.
I captured this image on another trip up to Karuizawa. I had to pull over and take this shot. The scene was just too beautiful. There an amazing grocery store in Karuizawa where you can buy all sorts of local fruits, vegetables, meats and more. It’s worth the day trip just for the grocery shopping. I wish I saw the shadow of the torii gates in my framing and I would have taken a few steps back to capture all of it in the image.
Thanks for stopping by today!

The last time I boarded a flight out of Japan was January 2020. This was a much welcomed change from the previous 20 years of traveling out of Japan every few weeks on business trips. I’ve secretly had a goal to not make my airline status
