Tejikara Fire Festival is a little local secret. It's a great event, if you can find a place to get a good view. I'll post more on this later.

Yes, it is a great event. I prefer the second one in August along the Nagara River. It is much easier to get a place for a good view :)

Google offers photo editing software Nik for free
Is it just me, or does this seem like a game changer for amateurs? For me, it was a terrible idea for Adobe to move to a subscription charging service. I don't need a constantly updated LightRoom or PhotoShop, and so monthly and annual subscriptions are bad for me. Now Google does this? Admittedly, I've never heard of Nik. Is it any good?
Whoa. Google just announced that it's making its Nik Collection of desktop photo editing software 100% free. You may remember that Google acquired Nik Soft

Oddly, after spending about a decade in Japan, my first trip to Tokyo was only recently. I did some shoots with some local models, and all went great... I just wish the weather was a little nicer.

Are you a vet, or do you know someone who is? This Nara Park deer might need help. There seems to be a problem with its mouth. There might be a risk to humans getting an infection from it too. Nara Park deer are renowned as this is one most famous place where people can feed, pat, and interact with wild deer. The deer are wild, and so there is no health or medical oversight for them, so it may be up to us.

Perhaps an ill-advised catch phrase spotted on a Nagoya subway train.

Thank you..
Dr #Ravindra_Kolhe and his wife Dr #Smita chose to do a thesis on comparative study around slums of #Vidarbha, where at #Melghat he observed an infant mortality rate of 200 per 1,000. "The reason was poverty. Everyday, I used to see kids dying of starvation," he said.
By charging just Rs 2 for medical consultation for the last 30 yrs, he has made a huge contribution in bringing down the mortality rate down to 60 per 1,000.

Does this deer need help?
There seems to be a problem with its mouth. Do you know of a vet, or someone who does? Please forward this to them.

Does this deer need veterinarian help? If so, how important or urgently? I was in the Nara Park (Nara, Japan) on the 18th March, near a toilet block far from the other deer. I saw this guy and notice what looks like a problem with his mouth. It appears that the lower jaw is recessed a lot, ...

I've been thinking about getting a lens just for portraits. From what I can tell, this recent article on PetaPixel http://petapixel.com/2016/03/14/problem-modern-lenses/ about how old lenses have a certain character that is sooooo nice has piqued my interest. So, if I could get an adapter for the Sony a-mount, what lens would be superbly awesome?

My first proper blog post about Tokyo, is about Sensoji Temple. It was a great introduction to Tokyo, one that I recommend to other travellers. Hope there's something here that's useful for you: http://japanesephotos.asia/blog/2016/03/14/visiting-sensoji-temple-tokyo-potw/

Travel photographer in Nagoya, central Japan
Introduction
I'm a photographer living in central Japan in Nagoya City, the home of the Toyota Motor corporation. Nagoya is the richest and second most expensive of the cities in Japan. It lies right in the centre between Tokyo and Osaka. I often find myself going to events and festivals in Nagoya, Nara, Kyoto, and the surrounding areas.

Note, I only circle people if I can see their profiles.
