Photography has changed the way I see the world around me.

Through it I discover new things and rediscover old ones. Like my island, New Caledonia.

This blog is just me sharing my world through my photography.

Hope you enjoy.

KASUMIGA-IKE POND

 KANAZAWA, JAPAN

photo of the day

Kasumiga-Ike Pond is situated in the middle of one of three perfect gardens in Japan, Kenroku-En garden. It’s designed to be beautiful during every season. I was hoping to get a shot of the small bridge, Kotoji Stone Lantern in the foreground and the tea house in the background, devoid of tourists. But when I saw these two walk into my composition in their traditional clothing and pose in such a way, they balanced my composition just perfectly. Plenty of photo opportunities in Kenroku-En garden and well worth the visit.
