Leaving Niseko on yet another powder day, I flew down to Kyoto and Osaka for a short break and a good dose of history and culture before heading back to NZ. Here’s an overview of my trip, through the viewfinder…

Temples, shrines and scenery in Kyoto; with Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 50mm 1.8.

More Kyoto temples and scenery, and Osaka Castle; with Nikkor fisheye 10.5mm.

A night out in Osaka; with Nikkor Fisheye 10.5 and Nissin Di622 Flash unit.

All-in-all, great cities, amazing history and some really fun people along the way. Thanks to all those whose paths I crossed.
