PhoTAYgraphy 2016 - Japan!

So what, I like to take pictures. So what, I took 1280 photos while I was in Japan. No big deal :P

Luckily for you all, I have whittled it down to the best of the best, cream of the crop! Some are still better than others, though.

Below are some of the highlights, while you can find some more (don’t worry, not 1000 more.. I think there’s 80 in total) in an imgur album here!

Mt. Fuji was clouded over the whole day we were there, but just as we were getting ready to leave the peak poked out of the clouds. It was great. Praying at the shrine for a good view of the mountain paid off. Thanks Japanese Gods!

Imperial Palace. I have a shot where there isn’t a little girl running through, but I thought she added character to the photo.
