One thousands Torii

News from the north

It’s already been a week here in Iceland!
After 4 days of constant rain, eating, hiking and camping under downpour, the sun has finally reappeared while I was chilling out in the hot tubs of vik y mirdal.
Tommorow I will say farewell to my old and dusty Toyota corolla with a thousand more miles on the meter.
Now I have to hitchhike!!

One thousand Torii

It’s been a while since the last post so I will add a new picture from Japan. Fushimi Inari Shrine is a Shinto complex in Kyoto. It’s famous for its thousands aligned Torii (as many as 10 000 according to some).
A torii is those nice red gate which are supposed to Marked the entrance of a sacred space.
After a very long and exhausting day, I arrived in the sanctuary after sunset. Instead of going for a ramen I spend a long time alone playing with composition and long exposures.

Kumamoto blooming

Another one from Japan. I prepared 5 or 6 to post during my journey in Iceland. I hope you will like them.

After spending the day around Aso volcano in south Japan, I went back to town in time to see the sunset on the castle. Cherry blossom was at it’s best in this wonderful spring day. Climbing the stairs going to the castle I took this shot.

Hundred cannons

This is another shot from Essaouira. On the fortification, there is dozens of european made cannons, facing the ocean.
If you watch the season three of Games of throne, you might recognize this place.
The scenes in the city in Astapor in Slaver’s Bay, are filmed here. They used these fortifications as the walk of Punishment, they just hid every cannon under gallows and cross where slaves are set to die.

Yokohama by night

First picture from Japan!
This is the cityscapse of Yokohama, which is the second most populated city in Japan after Tokyo.
I went there around 5pm in order to take some pictures of the sunset.
And I can tell you that this one was tough to take! I tried almost five differents buildings before finding the right spot. And the right spot was in the 26th floor of an office building.
I just chilled there for almost an hour, waiting for the sun to go down, collecting curious gaze from office workers.
The sunset was wonderful and I took many photographs, using the well known sweater trick to avoid reflections on the huge windows.
After almost two hours inside, just when I was packing my stuff, a guard came to me and gently escorted me out.
In the elevator going down I was a bit worry where he would lead me, but the guy just show me the way out saying in a really bad english “you can be here not up”.
