Travel Photography – Documenting The Details

Collage

A Note for Travelers One of my favorite things about traveling is the opportunity to document it through photography. After a trip I usually have hundreds, if not thousands, of photos to weed through and edit – which happens to be one of my favorite parts about returning home. I love looking back on where I had just been. When I’m able to look at the whole collection together they start to really paint the story of where I was, and it’s not the zoomed out scenic photos or whole images of anything that do this, but the zoomed in […]

Box Wine – The Good, The Bad, The Tasty

Box Wine

Box Wine Quick, whats the first thing that comes to mind when you hear ‘BOX WINE’? ‘Cheap’, ‘swill’, ‘classless’, ‘bad’, or just ‘eeew’ in general? Whatever you thought of I highly doubt ‘quality’ or ‘premium’ were terms that reached the surface of your mind. It’s true, box wine has a harsh stigma to overcome (we can thank brands like Franzia – an American campus staple – for that). This has been particularly true in the United Sates which is hard to believe of a country that loves wine coolers, jug wine, and drinking large quantities with ease in general. It […]

Adventure of the Week #6 – Mt. Fuji and Chureito Pagoda

Mt. Fuji and Chureito Pagoda

I’ve had many great and interesting experiences in my life, but I still have plenty to tick off my bucket list. My goal is to try, do, or see something new every week, and hopefully I’ll post my ‘Adventure of the Week’ every Friday (or close to). Here’s adventure #6: Mt. Fuji and Chureito Pagoda If there was only time to visit one thing while in Japan, Mount Fuji would definitely have to make the top of the list (or at the very least within the top 3). Amazingly, after living in Japan for nearly four months I only just […]

Adventure of the Week #5 – Kagoshima, Japan

Kagoshima, Japan

I’ve had many great and interesting experiences in my life, but I still have plenty to tick off my bucket list. My goal is to try, do, or see something new every week, and hopefully I’ll post my ‘Adventure of the Week’ every Friday (or close to). Here’s adventure #5: Kagoshima, Japan This seaside resort town, often referred to as the Naples of Japan, is known for being one of the friendliest cities in the country. Although there are many cities around the world that don’t often live up to their reputations, Kagoshima certainly does. It truly is one of […]

The Powerful Pairing of Manga and Wine

Manga and Wine

Manga and Wine I’ll affirm that I’ve no great love for manga, comic books, or the like. I have no issue with them, and I know firsthand that they can be an entertaining read, I just simply never developed a fondness for them. BUT, when in Japan, it seems that a person must at least try to take an interest, especially since manga’s a pop-culture force that influences and drives most of the population- young and old. So, the first Japanese comic I ventured to read was ‘The Drops of God’, a clever combination of both manga and wine. I […]
