Blue Bunny

At the start of 2018, I adopted a ‘keep photography fun’ approach to this year.  I got a message from a buddy of mine who had just got his new bunny all signed off.  I sorted the importation of this genuine TRA-Kyoto kit from Japan so was quite keen to go for a ride in the completed product.  Of course I grabbed the camera to flick off a couple of shots.

See ya 2017…

Twenty seventeen has been an odd, but unusually satisfying year behind the lens for me.  It has been the first time in a long that that I haven’t set foot in Japan at all, and I thought this would be weirder than it actually was.  Most of you know me for my heavily Japanese orientated content, and the prospect of  predominantly shooting non-Japanese subjects scared me a little.  I jumped out of my comfort zone a bit, and enjoyed the new subjects that I found in front of me.
