So I started looking at themes both free and premium here on wordpress. I decided for the cost to upgrade to premium and here’s the rub. None of the so-called premium themes suit me as much as the free theme I am using now. Is it just me or is there really nothing in either […]

I got in to the hotel last night and the visa and immigration/customs things take awhile at the airport. Today I rested a bit and then headed out for some time in the Old Quarter with the camera. I ended up at the Ho Hoan Kiem Lake along with just about everybody else. It was […]

I guess if I were to ride a tour bus I would claim some small measure of victory but I don’t. I walk and think and take pictures and then think some more. I think walking is the best tonic for me but yet someone may ask what about this or that major thing you […]

Today I walked down from the hotel in a roundabout way to the Tennoji JR and subway station.

Traveling light is not only carrying one rollerbag by the way. Rollerbags are evil things meant to roll over feet in […]

Tomorrow at noon I catch the Nozomi Shinkansen to Osaka for 5 days or so. Today I just wanted to see some areas I had not seen in Hiroshima and not focus so much on taking photographs of the places. I did capture a few to finalize my trip. Here’s a few from today. Tomorrow […]

I went out for dinner and took along the Fuji camera. Night-time photography is fun and different since the lighting, signs, and streets all take on a different character than normal. People sometimes are less guarded and the streets blare out in their evening music of horns, street cars, and sirens. Hiroshima is a active […]
