There are many reasons we take photographs and in this two-part post I have shown a selection of shots taken primarily to capture colour or texture. Despite being taken to aid my memory of basic colours and/or textures, each photograph has a story to tell and in some instances, a history stretching back hundreds of years. However, the purpose here is not to tell stories, but to simply share some shades of Japan.

Photography reflects how I see the world around me. I respond to images that interest me, which can be anything ... people, places, colour, texture ... anything at all. By sharing my photos through this blog I know that viewers will see based on their life experiences. That is the wonder of photography ... one image ... many interpretations.

These are great! The close up views of ordinary images makes them extraordinary. I look for doors, latches and handles on my travels. Really appreciate the ones you have done

I’m glad you enjoyed the images. I think it is important to look for and appreciate the small things when travelling as well as the more obvious attractions.
