Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
This was a magical little find off on one of the side streets in Ginza, Tokyo, Japan. From the road, I saw a bunch of patterned tea holders inside of a quaint shop, so I just went inside. For whatever reason, I am less shy about going into random stores in Japan. Even if I end up in a really strange store (which is mostly the case!), then people are so polite there that they never make me feel bad about it! Speaking of that, I should get some more photos of the rather strange stores into which I pop into!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
I do travel a lot to take photos, and I absolutely love it. I don't take a single minute of it for granted, and I don't take a single click of the camera for granted. But the idea that I get to come home to this, to New Zealand, is something that I don't think I'll ever get used to.

This was a fun photo to make, although a little challenging! The most challenging part was not chopping down the tree — it was not decorating the tree with lights — it was not convincing Tina to lay under the tree to spin it — it was not positioning the tree and getting the camera settings right (35mm at f/8 for at 1000 ISO for 3 seconds btw — I know you are wondering) — the most difficult part WAS getting the three kids to sit still for THREE SECONDS. haha man we did everything to get them to stand still. This is position 1 by the way, and position 1 was always interrupted by a lot of rolling and laughing and nonsense on the floor. I had to keep saying, "Okay everyone stop having fun so we can take this damned photo!" haha...
