So I spent the last two weeks in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan, shot a few hundred images and five rolls of film, have returned and now have a bunch of photographs to put somewhere. This is just the digital photos of my trip. Once I've developed and scanned my film, I'll do a film post, while working on more of an essay on my experience.
Who needs sleeves?
I love these burgers.

All aboard the choo-choo train.
