Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
The title doesn't mean anything really - I took a bazillion photos of all sorts of people during my time in Japan. This one is from Kyoto - I cant even remember the exact temple where I took this, there are so many!
The temples and shires are a great place for people photography though. You see families that are stressed, families that are happy, people in pain from too much weight on their back, retired people, lonly globetrotters, lost people, people complaining, fighting couples, overly happy couples, and everything far and few in between. Besides, in Japan people simply do not get upset for having someone taking a photo of them. I often ask, but when the opportunity strikes..
Recently, my buddy Shane and I went on a road trip through the south of Ireland for a long weekend. It has been a super long Saturday and an even longer Sunday – driving for 9h a day does come at a cost, especially when the car has to stop every 150m for us to grab the tripod and head into the land. Anyway, on the way back to Dublin on Sunday night, Shane suddenly stopped the car and jumped out as if he has seen the greatest motive of all times.
I realised what he saw when I looked down from the bridge where we stopped the car (!) – this castle, I am sure it is very famous, just stood there with a perfect reflection and an incredibly uniform sky. In my mind, I just saw this place with the milky way across, which is why this post and the image below exists.
I hope one day I will actually know the name of the place – I might even have been there before, but it was dark and I was trying not to be hit by passing cars, so I did not even try to figure it out in the moment.

When visiting other people during a photo walk, there are many people that have no camera at all and they just use their phone. And this is awesome! There is no need for an expensive camera if you just enjoy taking pictures and you like these kind of photo walks.
