This capture is a stolen shot in the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line, when I was visiting Japan beginning April 2014 for Cherry Blossom season.

The Japanese lady waiting for the ned train is wearing a traditional suit "Kimono" and a mask. I took this opportunity to get her as my static foreground when the train enter in the station. I shot with a slow shutter speed allowing to get the train in movement but not too slow to get the lady sharp. By chance, the door of the train is captured in the frame of the picture. At last, I got the perfect contrast between tradition / static / monochrome / verticality on one side and modernity / movement / colors / horizontality on the other side. It comes to be a picturesque scenery representing in some ways Japan by itself.

Seattle Japanese Garden

Japanese Beetles (Popillia japonica) were accidently introduced into the US in the early 1900s, and have become a serious invasive, destructive pest in most of the eastern States and southeast Canada.

I went to the Portland Japanese Garden for the 2nd time (and 1st time since moving to Portland). The classic tree was looking OK, albeit minus a lot of leaves, but this tree was looking quite sublime in the soft light of the fog-filled sky during this eerie November morning. I think this tree is a bit more interesting than the classicly shot one, but you can be the judge.

Japanese pavilion is a part of the Big Palace in Oranienbaum.


Oranienbaum is a Russian royal residence, located on the Gulf of Finland west of St. Petersburg. The Palace ensemble and the city centre are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Beautiful performance by Sydney Soran Odori-tai, a Japanese cultural dance group.

It's funny how we are always looking for the next photo opportunity. As I was cutting the grass yesterday, I looked up and was inspired. The colors remind me of fall, but the Japanese Maple tree Is green on the underside and turns burgundy toward the top where the sun hits. Leeds, Alabama

I planted this tree many years ago it was only 2 foot tall now it is 20 foot tall.

The gnarled branches of a Japanese Maple make for a seemingly vascular setting.



Zosterops japonicus


Expression to begin because I know a quality of Japan, the own country.

Japan is full of green. So water is pure. Because water is rich, there are

many trees. The country where 70% of the country are mountains.

The country which the country has the four seasons, and changes the

four season and an expression.

Autumn in Japan is a run-up to greet cold winter. I feel the tense natural

beauty at a little time.


For the photography that condensed all of them, I aimed at this time.


和菓子 Japanese sweet

The soft fresh sweets which I mixed thing ) which I added sugar and starch syrup to powder of refined rice flour and the glutinous rice which I boiled , and worked out whether it was sultry and a cinnamon vine and worked out .

There are the moderate softness and viscosity and pushes this to the shoe tree which I engraved various form on and I get it fixed with a hand and a spatula and put work and color it in the edible food colors such as red food dye or the gardenia and finish it to a Japanese sweet .

(paste cake ) is just finished to a Japanese sweet , and match with other materials , and become the bean - jam cake , and a thing of various colors , form that put together in a season is made .




Japanese name means "Lady Murasaki(purple)", the author of "The Tale of Genji".

I think I can safely say that this is my favorite Japanese Maple tree...ever. I have taken my fair number of photos of this tree, much like many others. I really like the contrast between the orange and the green, makes me think of a volcano erupting. Once again, this is Fuji Velvia. I have been going through some of my old slides and decided to share this one from last Fall.

Berberis thunbergii (Japanese barberry,Thunberg's barberry, or Red barberry[1]) is a species of Berberis, native to Japan and eastern Asia, though widely naturalized in China and in North America.

Here is a Japanese Maple at the Seattle Japanese Gardens I was able to capture on that rainy Saturday morning this past weekend. This was an extremely tough shot! The tree was located a few feet from the pathway and you cannot stand on the grass. So I set up my tripod at the lowest height setting and aimed my camera up into the tree. This was shot with my Canon 10-22mm wide angle lens. I was kneeling on the pathway and fired off three exposures.


The hard part was that it was raining and water kept dropping onto the lens. I first shook the branch that was above my camera to loosen any water droplets. Then I cupped my hand just above the lens to hopefully keep away any stray droplets. I had to take the third exposure over four times because of the errant rain drops.


So yes, this is a smaller Japanese Maple at the gardens. There is a slightly larger one near the entrance, but it has yet to start showing color. Some of my friends have pictures of this awesome Japanese Maple located at the Portland Japanese Gardens in Oregon. I think all Japanese Maples have it in their DNA to want to be as grand as that tree! This one stands just about 5 feet tall.


I looked at the SOOC, but felt that the HDR really brought out the highlights and color. This is three exposures (-2,0,+2) merged and tonemapped in Photomatix. Ran through Topaz Detail to clean up and final adjustments for toning down the color and luminance in Lightroom. I hope to make it down to Portland next fall to photograph the big Japanese Maple there. Here is a great picture shot by David GN Photography


Thank you for your views, comments and faves. I really appreciate them. I may head off over to our snowy mountain passes today!

I visited the Seattle Japanese Garden in search of colorful foliage. The amazing tree at the entrance to the garden never fails to deliver!
