This month I'm going to focus more on black and white street. I've been intently focused on colour photography since I started, and I never feel comfortable shooting on black and white. So, a new year means time to give something new a real go!

Finally got to visit Shirakawa-go as part of the recently concluded Japan tour with my family. It was a pleasure to visit another UNESCO World Heritage site and also the land of "Oyashiro-sama".⠀
According to our tour guide, the village supposedly served as a haven for samurai who did not want to fight for their masters back in the Sengoku period. In modern times, the village serves as the inspiration for Hinamizawa Village in the popular Japanese doujin game, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (swipe for the anime screenshot; think I got a pretty similar angle 😊). ⠀

Finally got my incredible @peakdesign travel #tripod last week from their @kickstarter campaign. I was able to take it out yesterday and get some absolutely beautiful shots from #brooklynbridgepark with it, my @nikonusa#D850 , and my #pixel4xl (thanks to the built in phone mount). It weighs almost nothing, takes up very little space, and the build quality is unreal. This isn't an ad, but if you're looking to have the best travel tripod, buy this one.
