One lovely side-effect of using Adobe Lightroom as the hub of my image workflow is that I now have all the shots I've loaded into it available at my fingertips (which at this point is everything since last summer, currently about 12,500 images that have survived the delete key).

I came across the wonderful photo set from when Nils and I visited some temples last fall, and realized that I hadn't posted many of them. At the time, I did post a bunch of fall-foliage desktops, and a few about our visit to Konpukuji Temple, as well as one post with a plant picture with interesting bokeh and another of someone relaxing at a temple. But there are so many more that appeal to me, a few of which I've included here.

For some reason, the picture above really appeals to me. It's similar to the last photo used in my first post about Lightroom, but with a lot of people. I don't know why, but having caught the lady turning to look at me seems to add a lot to this image. At least, for me it does.

The following image, too, is wholly unremarkable, but I like it and it's my blog, so here it is. The area in front of the house was really barren as if they had finished construction but not yet started landscaping, and I thought the one little flower seemed to complement that well.

One comment so far...

Just came across your blog, and want to say nice work…. in fact, that doesn’t go anywhere near expressing how impressed I was with the blog. Nice work – and great photos. Kyoto’s my favourite city outside of Sapporo (where my wife was born, and where we return once a year)… and I’d so love to live in this great city. Green with envy.

I will enjoy exploring your blog (there’s a lot there and I’m sure it will take a while).
