"Prayers waft through warm spring air"

Did a photowalk down in Kamakura today with a lovely group of people; some regular students, some first-timers out on one of our events. All ended up with a barbecue at Yim's house, down in Zushi.

Superb weather, lovely company... and one of the things we were working on was a photo shot in mind of telling a story along the lines of Hemingway's 'six words' idea. He was once challenged in a bar, so the rumour goes, to tell a story in only six words.

This was one of mine.

  1. Hi Alfie. Sorry to post this here, but I wasn't sure if you got my latest email. I know I am meeting up with you on the Friday the 9th of July for tsukiji, but will you be available on the 5ht, 6th, 7th, 8th or 10th for some night street photography?

    Again, sorry for posting here, but would love to iron out these details before we get to Japan. We head down to the Kansai area on the 11th.

    Thanks, Stephen

  2. I love the mood of this photo! Great!
