Our time in Kyoto was all too brief. We split our week up and managed to do a number of the guide book must see sort of places as we could manage but almost more importantly to both YoungDoo and I was making sure we had enough time to simply walk the streets and explore a new city together. I have traveled both in highly structured ways and the total opposite. I still remember wandering the streets of Paris for hours without a map or knowing what anything I came across actually was. As with many things, there is a balance to everything and our time in Kyoto was nicely balanced.
I don’t remember the name of this district, only that the architecture was very much the classic japan you would imagine after years of casually browsing what to expect. There was something new to discover around every corner and I really enjoyed this afternoon quite a bit.
This photo is one which did not stand out to me after shooting it but came alive after a little post work and digging the clouds out of an over exposed sky. While not pixel perfect I love it anyway because it brings me back to this moment so vividly and I love the one random pedestrian with the red backpack marching forward alone as if the street opened up just for him. While not the most minimal of wallpaper choices I wanted to share it because I loved the moment. Enjoy!
