日本 (Japan) & Orbital Periods

My littlest sister is currently in 日本 (a.k.a Japan), embarking on her Japanese Studies major work for university. I’m proud of her — and, today is her birthday!

To celebrate the occasion, I’d like to share some images that I took while on a trip to Tokyo, Japan, on behalf of Heroku.

Japan will always be near and dear to my heart, for many reasons, but Heroku (which I joined back in 2011 and departed within the past few years), will always be the strongest reason for my affections for the nation / land / territory / people / culture.

const heroku = ('hero' + 'haiku')

One of my proudest professional accomplishments, thus far, has been helping to inform the design of the following image—

Anyway, here are a carefully curated selection of the images I captured during that short trip. I was using a Leica M240 with a brand new 35mm Summilux (f/1.4) lens. These are arguably some of the best images, image-quality–wise, that I’ve ever taken. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show! and— Happy birthday, Brittany!
