It’s a Habit

It’s a Habit

The wonderful ladies over at habit are having a party this December. I am thrilled to be part of this incredible group of 33 women who have made this habit so irresistible all year. What fun this month is going to be! Come check it out!


Fin

The last of the black and whites. From Zats Burger Cafe, Tokyo. I had avocado on my burger. We had beers. This was such a lovely day.


Tucked Away in Corners

Tucked Away in Corners

For me, one of the most intoxicating and mysterious parts of Japan is the way that everything is not out on display, overt and declarative, but is instead hidden behind curtains and rice-papered windows, discovered through half-open doorways and narrow passageways. To a hungry person or a nosy curious person, this is at times frustrating, […]

Tokyo Subway

Tokyo Subway

On a Tuesday during the late September public holidays, I met some fellow film photographers for a meandering walk through the neighborhoods along the Chuo railway line in Tokyo. This outing gave me the opportunity to finally break out the Polaroid, and also to break in a brand new pair of Vans. One of these […]


Returning

Returning

It didn’t take long to figure out how deeply Japan has its teeth in me.


Staycation

Staycation

Maybe it was the weather. The threat of a typhoon that, until late Friday afternoon, was threatening to ruin any chance at a successful beach holiday; the clouds that have persisted since. Perhaps it was the crowds. The masses of people, all using the 5-day holiday weekend to fill every train, plane, bus, hostel, pension, […]

Rain on Saturday

Rain on Saturday

A little taste of autumn blew through Tokyo on Saturday. A little rain, a book, some movies, a long run around the palace. I was only missing a fireplace and some socks. Another Bicycle on Film, Agfa Vista 400


Jolly

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Hiki for an afternoon of wandering and eating and snapping cameras. Not only is her Australian accent adorable, but she knows all the best secret hiding places to take a new Tokyo resident. We wandered from one of my favorite neighborhoods, Daikanyama, to another favorite […]


Summer Wind

Summer Wind

The summer wind, came blowin in, from across the sea — Sinatra A two and a half hour train ride from Tokyo to Shimoda. A fifteen minute bus ride from Shimoda to Shirahama Beach. A room at the Gardenvilla Shirahama pension (guesthouse). A view that blew my mind open. A typhoon season surf. A warm […]


Izakaya

Izakaya

Izakaya are traditional Japanese pubs, often small and intimate, cozy and comfortable. Drinks are served with small dishes that are shared with your table. My first authentic izakaya experience in Tokyo was with two Frenchmen at a spectacular and sophisticated hole in the wall in Ebisu. Literally. We walked up to a wall, they pushed […]

On Friday night, after the rain, after a long but exciting but tiring but productive week, after a warm cup of Royal Milk Tea, after changing from heels and fancy pants to sandals and skirt, I set out with camera into the quiet neighborhood and the warm warm wind.


Sunday in Samcheongdong

Sunday in Samcheongdong

Given the Very Long List of Things I Have To Do Before July 19th, I should probably not be prancing about in Samcheong on a Sunday afternoon, lollygagging in cafes, drinking Mango smoothies, buying necklaces, shooting Agfa, poking heads in shops, eating woodfired pizza and having a rather perfect summer afternoon with a Finn and […]


A new way of seeing things

A new way of seeing things

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”  – Henry Miller When I was 23, I was in love with a young man who was in love with the open road. When I looked at him, I fell under the intoxicating spell of his wide grin and the wonder in […]

Seoul Flea Market

Seoul Flea Market

A few weeks ago, I went to Seoul Flea Market to find weird, old Korean stuff to hang on my walls. I suffered a case of what my friend Tina calls IKEA Syndrome — in which one spend hours browsing and collecting, only to leave everything mere inches from the check-out due to overstimulation — […]

Before I had furniture I had tchatchkes, breakfast, a view, a mismatched collection of books and a roll of Fuji 400H in my camera.
